John Oliver may have taken July 4 weekend off from Last Week Tonight, but that didn’t stop him from leaving fans with something to tide them over until the next episode: a web extra that upends the show’s format.
As Oliver says, Last Week Tonight normally spends an extended segment on one topic – “arguably in greater detail than anyone needs, objectively for a longer period than anyone wants.” This week for the holiday, however, Oliver decided to spend (a little more than) one minute discussing 15 topics.
Watch above as Oliver briefly hops from one subject to the next, from flip flops to bagels to the surprising similarity between the food chain and orgies. And if that’s not quite enough for you, Oliver ends the video the only way Last Week Tonight knows how – with an adorable dog photo.
