'Last Week Tonight With John Oliver'

"Let's take these last few moments to celebrate humanity's greatest times on Earth," like Segways, peanut butter, water slides, "Hammer time" and that video of Kelsey Grammer falling off the stage.

Sunday's episode of Last Week Tonight debuted its doomsday video to counter CNN's lackluster broadcast option, which was posted online in January.

John Oliver's version features Martin Sheen to liven up the last days.

"I'm afraid if you're watching this, the end times are upon us — whether because of war, disease or a genetically modified dinosaur, our world is now only moments away from total annihilation," he tells the camera. "So let's take these last few moments to celebrate humanity's greatest times on Earth."

Such achievements include Segways, peanut butter, water slides, "Hammer time" and that video of Kelsey Grammer falling off a stage.

But to be honest, all anyone wants to see before the world ends is a slew of cats in a cat saloon and "this sick basketball shot."

The episode also tackled the topic of patents — specifically, how "the patent system has been increasingly prone to abuse" by "patent trolls," or companies who make money by attacking others with lawsuits.
