  • A lot more death wishing than I expected in this video

  • Yes shape shifters the octopuses are and it’s miraculous. Cats can’t shape shift nor can you!

  • Octopussies!!! Change my mind!

  • Don't they also have the best eyes in the entire animal kingdom (yes that includes humans who have actually very shitty eyes)

  • "I just hope this video helped you appreciate octopuses a little more than you did when it started". S̶o̶r̶r̶y̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶a̶p̶p̶o̶i̶n̶t̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶J̶o̶h̶n̶,̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶r̶e̶'̶s̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶s̶a̶i̶d̶ ̶o̶r̶ ̶s̶h̶o̶w̶n̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶m̶e̶ ̶a̶p̶p̶r̶e̶c̶i̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶o̶c̶t̶o̶p̶u̶s̶e̶s̶ ̶m̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶n̶ ̶I̶ ̶c̶u̶r̶r̶e̶n̶t̶l̶y̶ ̶d̶o̶.̶ Actually, scrap that. I didn't know about dear Charles before, so thanks for showing me octopuses are also capable of dissidence. He's like "fuck you, I aint playing your stupid games to get treats for amusing you." That for me is sing of real intelligence right there. Humans should follow his example. There's nothing like going against the established rules and spreading a little bit of anarchy in the process, just to show how stupid the socially acceptable way of doing things actually is! Charles the Octopus just made it on my list of persons of greatness and worth of respect. He's third on my list, just below Diogenes of Sinope. Also I eat almost anything that can be considered food, ecpect octopuses. When talking about diets with someone, I tell them I'm aoctoverian or anti-octovore...

  • Lol, octo pussies... Your accent is funny

  • This is where tentacles hentai come from....

  • People actually think he’s funny?💭 +

  • youtube.com/shorts/CQWKWAAHcLY?feature=share 🙈

  • This most certainly made my appreciation for Octopuses skyrocket. Thank you mr.birdman.

  • Wait a sec. Octopus's garden is an awesome song!

  • how did you forget the fact that you can fish for octopuses using a sexy anime girl figure. Not a joke I'm 100% serious, look it up lol

  • I first learned about how smart octopuses are back in the late eighties after reading Michael Crightons book "Sphere."

  • The Wunderpus is actually still fairly new to scientists! They've been documented for a while, but they haven't been studied very much!

    • Octopus are absolutely amazing and I agree with everything in this video Also! The Giant Pacific Octopus can crush a car! They can create 10 pounds of pressure per suction cup, with the amount of suckers they have that's enough to crush a car!

  • Has John actually gotten funny?

  • ive seen enough hentai to know where this is going.

  • Another fun fact: the blue-ringed octopus found in Australian waters is poisonous and has killed people with its bite.

  • They have nine brains, a main one in their head and eight separate auxiliary brains one in each tentacle allowing each tentacle to have some level of autonomy.

  • I'm just mad that he didn't mention the fact that octopuses see another one of their species once in their life, fuck, and then die, anything outside of that is either met with running away or fighting. Octopuses are antisocial. But a group of researchers gave a bunch of octopuses MDMA and put them in a tank together and they displayed social behavior, group dynamics, and one even tried to hug a researcher. They didn't even think that encephelapods were capable of social behavior but all it took was an octopus race to prove them wrong. Octopuses can live at most seven years, that means that if you got octopuses to live I to their mid 20s or 30s they would rule the world by now.

  • The most unique thing we have is permanently enlarged mammary glands. And that's only half the population and those things usefulness ends somewhere between running pain and back pain.

  • "Stealth bagpipes"

  • Do an episode, on the stupid stuff the PPC Party of canada are saying

  • Stealth bag pipes, thats f*cking funny

  • I just like tentacle porn.

  • You should have mentioned Paul the octopus. He predicted the scores of German team at the 2010 FIFA world cup. And he was 5/5 or 6/6 if i recall.

  • Ikalgo would be soo happy to see this😭🤣

  • As a diver, octopuses are just the the dogs bollocks. I've had soooo many "it's a rock ... no, it's a sponge ... holy shit! It's an octopus!" moments. For a good read, check out "Other Minds" ... a discussion on the development of consciousness & sentience. It's got a lot to say about octopuses and posits that they are every bit as sentient as humans, possibly more so. I mean, looking around, we're not a very high bar to compare against.

  • I, for one, would like to welcome our new mollusc overlords

  • *octopi

  • There's something oddly disconcerting about an Englishman pronouncing "lever" as levver, rather than the correct way - leever.

  • Just keep swimming swimming, swimming, swimming 🎶

  • Thats why we shouldn't eat them

  • Time to stop eating octopuses.

  • Octopi m8 lol

  • Thank you for bringing more attention to these amazing and sentient creatures.

  • Pls do a video on why the Hell people post pictures of there kids on Social Media Irratates the Hell out of me Who else agrees?

  • John Oliver would make an amazing teacher! Speaking to kids so passionately and on the level would be super inspiring! Obv have to make sure its a bit more appropriate lol lol "And it calculates the hypotenuse - holy fuck! And Pythagoreus has lived off that shit for centuries." 😂

  • Glad I found this. I already thought octopuses are cool. Now, even more so. TFS.

  • "Scuba Trevor's funeral is today..." Omg John 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • So you like octopuses then.? Because that's what I'm taking away from this..

  • Cats dominate the internet because genetic studies of their DNA comparing them to their wild cousins.... Their level of identical nature would indicate the Truth that we have never domesticated the house cat. Humans were the domesticated species.

  • This is BY FAR the BESSSST video I've ever seen! 🐙

  • And here's someone who knows what they're talking about slamming octopuses! slflow.info/town/1Wajbqx814vVyYg/video

  • Scuba Trevor wasn’t on scuba. He’s snorkel Trevor.

  • My octopus teacher was actually an amazing documentary. It was visually gorgeous, immersive story line, unique subject. Everything you want in a documentary like this.

  • Sir I fucking love all that you do- please please please make another video about all the weird shit octopuses can do!! For instance one octopus at a zoo memorized some guards nightly rounds and snuck into the other tank to eat some of the fish! You made my entire week with this video

  • They should really remake the game Octodad haha

  • I’m upset there wasn’t a Cthulhu reference

  • They're so scary tho

  • I stopped eating animals when I learned about octopodes (yep, I’m on that bandwagon) and how smart they are a few years ago - from my kid. A friend offered me some of his calamari. Suddenly, I thought of the octopus taking a selfie, & BOOM. “No thanks,” I said, & I could never eat meat again.

  • Guys, the Brits are the absolute BEST at one liners and brilliant comedy! Love you John, and the expletives are f*** hilarious! x

  • Little known fact: A Chameleon does not change color with their enviroment, they change colors based on mood. An Octopus on the other hand, does change color with their enviroment.

  • Amazing creatures, yet they only five years max. John should say something about that.

  • You did a show on Asian hate. Asians eat live baby octopuses.

  • Casual Geographic may disagree with this video.

  • 3.6k crabs don’t like octopus Could honestly watch a full show of John Oliver praising octopus

  • Yeah, octopuses are cool, until you read about a female octopus. Then it's just a very sad story.

  • People are really out here saying humans were god’s greatest creation when octopuses are right there 🙄

  • This guy wasn’t even popular in Britain! Everyone makes fun of him here! Biden supporter, so he supports rape of Afghan woman and killing of innocent soldiers!

  • Even since I first read that Octopuses aren't just weird sea spiders as a kid, I have become unfeasibly angry whenever I see someone eating octopus. I actively wish for them to choke.

  • Oliver, what about Owls?

  • John Oliver is the funniest guy since Rik Mayall, honestly hilarious! Anyways, I 100% agree with him, most animals ain't got sh** on an octopus! actually let me change that, ALL other animals ain't got sh** on an octopus! People talk about a chameleon having "camouflage" but the truth is, a chameleon's camouflage is pretty disappointing!!!!! Cartoons and movie culture exaggerate and put out a false portrayal of the chameleon but in reality, it's a disappointing creature. If anything, their tongue is the most impressive part of the chameleon but that's it. I watched My Octopus Teacher, absolutely f**kin loved it!!!

  • fuck. i think i have a new favorite animal.

  • 4:57 lever... you've gone too far, John. Or should I say Jahn.

  • No mention of the Adorabilis. There is nothing but disappointment in this video.

  • Why you got to hate on Octopus’s Garden like that?

  • OMG - I love this!

  • So what I'm hearing is now that Trump is gone you have nothing interesting to say.

  • slflow.info/town/xJKXgIuDzmasvIw/video

  • John is starting to crack a bit...

  • Delightful!! I never knew they were such incredible creatures!

  • Someone should introduce this guy to Octodad.

  • Very insensitive to all the people that had a family member die while encouraging octopuses to crawl into their mouths. Sick.

  • Compromise plural : Octopodia

  • I adore octopuses. This pleased me greatly 🥰🥰🥰

  • and that's why i decided a long time ago not to eat octopuses and to be mad at people thinking that it's normal to eat some.

  • My son and I were just talking about how cool octopuses were yesterday. He was telling me how smart they are and they have 2 hearts. It was fun. I don't really like the ocean, but these are pretty cool.

  • #LastWeekTonight #4:45 HAHAHA XD XD i just lova ya so much John !

  • Octulus's garden isn't a terrible song ;-;

  • I have gained appreciation for octopuses and Mr. Oliver's rabid misanthropy.

  • Please send me more awesome octopus videos SLflow algorithm 🤙

  • Who ‘thumbs downed’ this video? Squids?

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Yet people still eat them

  • I'm sad that I waited this long to watch this video.

  • I like octopodes. 👍

  • Octopuses need more love. They deserve everything

  • Charles could of gotten free food, but he decided to spend his time trolling. Absolute legend.

  • When I see octopuses I click

  • "I am, I will, thanks" 🤣

  • This video is my favourite thing on the internet

  • when you catch one they look so angry you can see it in their eyes you can feel that they are not pleased . but the bastards are so delicious

  • They can also predict the future! Every experiment using octopuses to predict the outcome of some event has turned out in the octopus's favor. They're always correct. They can tell the future and we only sometimes use this to predict the outcomes of certain sports events

  • John doesn't want to be an octopus. He wants to play in a lady octopus' garden.

  • The mute turret lily possess because cave intrestingly appear around a auspicious salad. ill, illustrious skill

  • I am pleasantly surprised by whatever that was.

  • Check out Bbc documentary The octopus in my house

  • Best thing I have seen on the internet all day. Reminds me how much I love octopuses.

  • You need to see this octopus dreaming: slflow.info/town/kqd-e4J_vJbd2Iw/video

  • John is such a taurus...and even better I know he'll loath this comment as this taurus did writing it.
