John Oliver Hates April Fools' Day, Says It's for Sociopaths (Video)

John Oliver April Fools - H 2015

"Isn't betrayal fun?"

John Oliver is not a fan of April Fools' Day, and he expressed his opinion rather forcefully — as is his wont — in a web exclusive clip for Last Week Tonight.

"Pranks are terrible," said Oliver. "Anybody who claims to be excited for April Fools' Day is probably a sociopath. Because what they are really saying is, 'I cannot wait to hurt the people close to me.'"

Oliver asks the audience to take the "no prank pledge" with him to not only promise not to participate in April Fools' Day, but to ask others to "stop being a dick" if they look like they are about to prank someone.
