John Oliver fires back at Jack Warner, literally

Monday, June 15, 2015

John Oliver just upped the ante in his war of videos with ex-Fifa official and ex-Minister of National Security Jack Warner.

The embattled Independent Liberal Party leader is among several powerful figures in global football now facing charges over widespread corruption over the past two decades.

Two weeks ago, Warner produced a paid political ad called The Gloves Are Offg, to which Oliver responded on Tuesday by airing his own piece, “he Mittens of Disapproval Are On.

Last week, in response to Oliver's riff, Warner posted a short video that used as its score a YouTube video literally titled Epic and Dramatic Trailer Music

In the final segment of Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, Oliver used it to score his own response.

“Because, you have magnificent music under yours, well played,” he said. “Well, I see your music choice, and I raise you fire!”

Oliver then demanded an even “more spectacular” video from Warner by next Sunday, or “I will accept your graceless defeat.”

Watch the John Oliver response video below.
