Everyone’s talking about: John Oliver


Sure hasn’t he only gone away and gotten a bloody koala chlamydia ward named after him?

Oliver bought a jock strap auctioned off by actor Russell Crowe and decided to donate the jock strap and a few other pieces of Crowe’s movie memorabilia to the last Blockbuster video store in Anchorage, Alaska.

Crowe teamed up with the first family of Australian wildlife, the Irwins, and donated the proceeds from the sale of his jock strap to the study of koala chlamydia. Career highlight, for sure.
