John Oliver Tackles 15 Topics in One Minute Including Orgies, Bagels and Conspiracy Theories
He also talks about animals, banjos, subtitles and a special link between Al Roker and Lenny Kravitz.
Last Week Tonight was on hiatus for July 4th, the holiday John Oliver described as the “annual American tradition of reminding the sky who runs shit." Instead of a full show, Oliver filmed a web-exclusive "Shallow Dives" segment.
"Usually, we pick a main topic each week and explore it at length, arguably in greater detail than anyone needs, objectively, for a longer period than anyone wants,” says Oliver in the clip. He explains that for his new segment he will reverse what he usually does — speaking about one topic for fifteen minutes, and instead dedicate one minute to a flurry of 15 topics.
Oliver covers flip-flops, ostriches, orgies, banjos and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. He tells fans that sloppy joes are just drunk hamburgers and reveals his real feelings about chicken soup. He also shared the connection between Al Roker and Lenny Kravitz and after his dives were over, was very content while showing off a pug photo.
