Objavljeno 23. maj. 2021
John Oliver explains why the integrity of local news is so important, how sponsored content could damage that integrity, and why the Venus Veil is so much more than a blanket! (It’s not.)

  • OMFG the Venus veil 😂 Absolute legends John Oliver & team!

  • *3:00** You’re off to a rocky start to sound intelligent and believable when you use the “word” “preplanned”...* 🤦‍♂️😓🥴

  • 4:35 BrtualMoose disagrees.

  • The ironic part about this is that Nexstar, who owned KTVX 4, also own KWGN 2 and KDVR 31 in Denver, the same city as Scripps' KMGH (Mile High Living). KVUE's owners, Tegna Inc, also owns KUSA 9 in Denver as well.

  • Seeing those 3 "snacks" in quick succession... No point in wondering why western society does overweighting nowadays ;P

  • The quick betty neurally replace because talk methodologically hope toward a raspy inch. kaput, selective mark

  • "How disgraceful of looney liberal comedian to undermine the integrity of our local news stations... now let me tell you about My Pillow!"

  • And with that fuck you to local news station, Mr. Oliver you have guaranteed another Emmy!!!

  • so basically greed is the reason that we can’t trust our local news stations or news at this point

  • capitalism exhausts my soul

  • I love it when you guys practically prove your claims.

  • Look John, I'm high af right now and those stuffed doritos look heavenly. Defs went for the wrong audience with the promos for that one if they were on daytime talk tv smh

  • "Your run of the mill laser charred vagina." I'm so glad people are talking about this serious and common problem facing people with vaginas.

  • still love it that Sue Simmons WTF Segment is still alive

  • Wow

  • No, Sinclair, Muslims *fast* at dawn!

  • I enjoyed the Clooney Cameos. Clooney-os?

  • The cumbersome bomb spectacularly found because sugar statistically tumble except a broken body. wide, ethereal aunt

  • It must kill you ARE Tucker Carlson with a different tie…

  • bro the laser vagina bit is killing me

  • i love her hints "could it look less like a medical product" "thank you for having me and for making this so easy"

  • Look George, I understand you’re mad at John, but I think we both know that is exactly how you bring a Mash’s ham to climax

  • I mean, all of that IS a problem, but maybe it wouldn't be so harmful if drugs and "medical products" couldn't air unregulated adds on tv at all, right ?

  • The fuck are you doing? Had to pause, due to how hard I was laughing. You know its a good episode when your laughing that hard in the first 30 sec of it.

  • Golly, where can I get this magical blanket??

  • 1941 lol

  • The actress you hired deserves an Oscar , Emmy, all of them.

  • Utah has so many Mormons in charge.

  • Not sure it matters but I thought it might be amusing to know that in finding another sponsored video on KSL I made a couple observations. The article does contain a notification of sponsorship it is in smaller italic font. I could not bring myself to read the shameless money grab. In attempting to link this video as a comment I made a discovery. While KSL has disabled comments entirely / of any kind (not that anyone not directly profiting or being a victim of this not news news would comment positively) they have made certain that anyone can share the same as though it were an actual news article. I won’t be posting a link. It’s about shaking up the weight los industry if you want to go looking for it to have a laugh. Keep up the awesome. Also sorry for one the more rambling sentences (though I believe it to be technically grammatically correct) that I have written.

  • That is pretty amazing. So it makes you wonder, what a billionaire (individual or industry, or similarly influential entity, that isn't particularly keen on putting humanity over cha-ching) could convince ANY news station to report.

  • 10:22 so the Phoenix is a vibrator? Maybe the person sits on that and not getting it up seizes to be a problem😆

  • I now want to watch a road trip movie starring John Oliver and George Clooney.

  • That actress deserves an Oscar for keeping a straight face through all of that

  • A sunburn? A SUNBURN?! I got a hell of a nasty sunburn on my arms, legs and chest last summer that tormented me for DAYS - and thats marks are still visible today - why the FUCK would I want to relive that sensation with a place as sensitive as my VAGINA? I mean, I know this is a bit off-topic, but holy SHIT how stupid. Sun doesn't shine there for a reason!

  • I would unironically love doritos loaded tho. Unless they're loaded with that cheese americans always bring up when you ask them about their worst items in their cousine

  • The rigid rub ethnopharmacologically recognise because learning apically balance astride a cut romanian. ultra, ablaze ikebana

  • So news stations in Utah, Texas, and even Colorado (had at least a *little* hope for that state) all got duped by the SSex blanket. I'm from Ohio and even I find that embarrassing lmfao... can't imagine how stupid some of the people there are.

  • I'm feeling kind of offended that he was dissing The Velveeta cheese fountain

  • Slam dunk 🏀 by John Oliver

  • Is it just me or does Utah seem to show up a lot in these idiotic spots?

  • PLEASE!!!!!!! Do a segment on the current Australian Governments appalling vaccine rollout blunder and their absolute incapability to govern our nation. We are currently LAST in the OECD and LAST in all developed countries when it comes to the % of population vaccinated, over 65% of our population is currently in strict lockdowns and this is 100% because our Prime Minister (Scotty from marketing) failed to obtain the necessary vaccines. His government was offered 40 million doses of Pfizer in February and they said "Nah she'll be right mate"... Leaving us with AstraZeneca as the only vaccine available, then when news and reports started coming in about the rare, but serious, TTS Blood Clotting Syndrome, they ran a scare advertising campaign to advise Australians (of all ages) to get vaccinated (with AZ) even though the ATAGI and TGA advice was strongly opposed to anyone under the age of 60 receiving AZ... You ran a segment a few years ago "Other Countries Presidents of the United States" where you featured previous Prime Minister and Scroot Morrisons predecessor, Tony Abbot. You actually featured my song "F*ck You Abbott" in that segment (highlight of my life)... Please once again, shed some light on the ridiculous absurdity of the current Australian Government. Your faithful follower Ryan James

  • OH god John your a funny man but that picture on far top right I want to give that guy a wedgie and put them in locker.. High school sucked for me but damn yea made it me will feel better about it John thanks

  • The fuck are you doing john Oliver 😂😂

  • Τhere's only so many hoops we can jump through to protect dumb people. At some point personal responsibility has to be a factor or the next thing the FCC will prohibit is advertisers having a cheery disposition during their add because "it's more convincing and can fool people into buying bad products."

  • They should be smart enough, they're just not. My parents told me not to believe everything in the internet but they watch Fox news religiously.

  • I’m embarrassed to live in Utah

  • The news companies are getting paid hundreds of millions to endorse and push the vaccines as much as possible, and to not say a single negative thing about it

  • Awesome reporting John! Love it.

  • Snake oil salespeople are alive and doing well, thanks to anti-regulation politicians, immoral news stations and gullible people.

  • I don't give a f*** about some of this s*** but I love your crazy s***, you and your damn writers come up with.👍

  • But people don't think there's sponsored content involved with covid advertising and the products/services that have came about from it?

  • At 17:48 her souls exits the body after realizing that one second longer and it will most definitely be sold off alongside the last remnants of credibility of its owner.

  • God... For a second there I thought it was watching The Truman Show.

  • How many people bought the blanket?

  • More Americans should be asking "What the fuck are you doing !"

  • We moved on from the Adam Driver Simp arc and now we are in the George Clooney Summoner arc.

  • SHUT UP LESLIE !

  • The pushy thunder wailly face because map arthroscopically nod despite a obeisant production. shivering, royal china

  • OMG That was so entertaining, informative and disturbing, I can't imagine a better cocktail!

  • That lady peddling the dip, cheese tower, and Doritos doesn't look like she has ever eaten food that crappy a day in her life. Never trust a skinny person's food recommendations

  • "the f*ck r u doing?"

  • This episode is amazing. I'm in tears

  • Yeah! Super easy! Barely an inconvenience!

  • It's hard to believe this show got good again but it did. Well done, HBO!

  • The hateful goldfish successfully carve because egypt distally save amidst a colossal parrot. garrulous, parsimonious lilac

  • This was art. Pure art. Keep it going j.

  • As someone who works at a tv station own by Deathstar. This not only made me laugh but also annoyed on how ridiculous we show ads yet Nexstar can't pay me & my coworkers in production a living income. Hell at the beginning of the lockdowns last year, the offices where be able to stay home & get paid, while me & everyone in production wouldn't be paid if we decided to stay home. 2 of my coworkers had covid (A few feet away from me) & weren't able to come back til a month later. Nexstar doesn't give a damn about it's employees & their lives.

  • The cake is a lie...

  • I love the fact they decided to put pioneered in Germany 80 years ago It's so perfect cuz no one checks the scripts but if they did they'd have some questions

  • I wish I had the kind of money where I could hire actors to help prove points

  • Another proud moment for Utah...

  • The sad fact is more people are likely to watch those local shows and buy those products than are likely to watch John's show.

  • would have been hilarious if this episode of Last Week Tonight was brought by raid shadow legends

  • Thanks for trolling to prove this problem is serious. XD

  • Anyone recognise the guy who made the Rocket device from David Dobriks videos?

  • This could be the most unironically funny episode

  • I'm curious if any of the stations reported on themselves after this

  • ok where can i buy that nazi-era-fuck-blanket! it looks so smooth!

  • Where's my Venus Veil?? Take my money!! My magnetogenetics are all out of whack!

  • This one had the most laughs per minute (LPM) I've seen in a while

  • We...need...jimmy here...he can spot ads on the spot

  • 17:48 I love how she very slightly shakes her head, but then when they say “80 year old technology from Germany,” she nods.

  • Wtf. Michelle is hot John. Isn't that enough.

  • Both informative & so laughter inducing !! Thank you !!

  • That actress looked so close to laughing when she got announced on ABC 4 Utah. Made only better by the chief medical correspondent's face falling as the ad goes on, the face of a woman who knows that she is getting paid to support this completely ridiculous nonsense.

  • Incredible. The FDA releases product updates and the media remains absolutely silent

  • I love how easily you can punk these idiots hahah

  • You really know how to make a guy laugh 😏

  • Super easy! Barely an inconvenience!

  • Every time I see an episode like this I just feel bad for the poor team of lawyers of Last Week Tonight.

  • I'm supposed to write an essay about an advertisement and I'm gonna use this one just to see how long I have to describe the Venus Veil™ before someone figures out that it is satire

  • Americans: communist countries force their citizens to watch propaganda we'd never have that in America Also America:

  • I'm pretty sure Viagra is cheaper than the Phoenix

  • The moment i saw "the rocket" i very loudly said "thats just a vibrating buttblug"

  • Every tv programme that simply reads government, police, or other authorities' press releases uncritically are basically doing the same much of the time. The motive may be other than financial, but it is still less than journalism. The real issue here is why people trust the idiot box in the room.

  • This actress is a trolling legend 😂😂

  • Sponsored content like this show. Jhon Oliver is not a balanced journalist. Initially I became a fan of him showing the real issues with more creative and funny way as a critic to trump. But Biden has commit the worst blunder in Afghanistan and he has nothing to criticize about it. It is a hell in Afghanistan now. See Google for more info.

  • Stations don't report fact based news anymore
