John Oliver Improves on CNN’s “Doomsday Video” and Gives a Crash Course in Patent Trolls

John Oliver and the team at Last Week Tonight put up another week of important and hilarious work that shows how deserving of The Peabody Award they really are.

At the end of the world, CNN has had, for years, a video cued up to play us all out. Almost needless to say, it’s not very comforting.

So, Last Week Tonight recruited Martin Sheen to guide us through a much better video to play before the last moments before annihilation. 

Oliver also gave a crash course in patents and the disturbing presence of patent trolls.

When the end of the world will exactly come around is up for debate, but we certainly hope that it’s a very long time from now, but also that Last Week Tonight is still running just like it is now.
