Sepp Blatter Officially Named in Bribery Email, and Other Bad News for FIFA
John Oliver Celebrates FIFA Scandal with Bud Light Lime (Video)
Anyone who knows John Oliver and his HBO show knew that the target of his ire this week would be FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who resigned from his post amid corruption charges coming from seemingly every side. And because John Oliver is hilarious, he commemorated the US-led prosecution by doing a bunch of really, really American things. Like eating a mile-high burger and pounding back the most American of beers, Bud Light Lime.
Here’s the video clip. Try not to get any burger or beer on you:
Last week, John Oliver promised to consume Adidas, McDonald’s, and Bud Light products if they made Sepp Blatter go away. Just one week later, Blatter is gone, leaving Oliver with some consumin’ to do.
As you can see in the video, he holds up his end of the bargain, even tossing on some crazy-ass Adidas Icarus sandals. Or something. Check out the video, and celebrate a unilaterally American action that everyone can get behind.
