John Oliver Tackles FIFA Corruption Scandal in the Most Hilarious Way

John Oliver was back again, dismantling FIFA with comedy. On last night’s Last Week Tonight, he encapsulated the FIFA corruption scandal, from Chuck Blazer’s cat apartment to Jack Warner’s video where he referenced an Onion article and Sepp Blatter’s re-election as FIFA President in this terrific video. He ended his piece by pleading with current FIFA sponsors Adidas, McDonalds and Budweiser to use their influence to get rid of Blatter. Oliver is even willing to up the ante and promote their products, even though he clearly isn’t a fan.

Oliver also talked about FIFA on his show last year during the World Cup. You can view that video here.
