On Sunday's edition of "Last Week Tonight", host John Oliver joked that he had no choice but to end the show after hitting a height that could never be topped: having an Australian wildlife centre devoted to studying chlamydia in koalas named after him, thanks to a "random act of generosity" involving Russell Crowe's jockstrap.
Which was news to Oliver, who feels nothing but disgust and disdain for Australia.
At the time, we were still blissfully unaware of Australia's Koala Chlamydia problem, but thankfully, Oliver's kindness, Crowe's gesture of appreciation, and a freaky video involving the Irwin family cleared everything up for us.
Last month, "Last Week Tonight" purchased items from Russell Crowe's auction of various costumes and props from his films, and donated them to one of the last remaining Blockbuster Video stores in Anchorage, Alaska.
"That may honestly be the greatest thing I've ever seen", he gushed.
"And please, don't think of this as a sad occasion", Oliver asked viewers, said as he packed up props from episodes past.
That "something special" turned out to be the Australia Zoo naming its chlamydia ward The John Oliver Koala Chlamydia Ward.
Oliver did this after opening an envelope where he had written down his main goal for the show, and sure enough, it was just three words: "Koala Chlamydia Ward". "And a big thank you to John Oliver. you are helping in the fight against chlamydia, and a plaque has been organized in your honor". "It was 4 AM, and you know what happens when you start online shopping late at night", Oliver explained of the binge bidding, on an episode of Last Week Tonight that aired back in April. Naturally, there was nothing left to do but call it a day-forever. This would have been one odd way to end the show. Has reality become too much for Oliver? He's not really quitting. Apparently, quite a large portion of viewers actually thought so. It is real. Thank you. When he opened it, the document read "Koala Chlamydia Ward". Have a good day.
