  • Yep, John Oliver Just Bought The 'Cinderella Man' Jockstrap From Russell Crowe's Sydney Auction

Last Week Tonight's John Oliver has a gift for the nation's remaining Blockbuster video rental stores in Alaska: the jockstrap Russell Crowe wore in Cinderella Man.

Along with that piece, the HBO show also bought a pair of shorts and robe from the 2005 boxing film. Over the course of 16 minutes, Oliver elucidates how last year's tax bill made it so that citizens pay more in taxes than corporations, how corporations have options for paying even less, and how all of this could have been avoided.

Oliver discussed the threat to the last Blockbuster store on the show before revealing his purchases. After introducing the segment with a nostalgia-fueled look back at Blockbuster, during which the show sourced KTUU's reporting, Oliver said he hopes to send the Crowe memorabilia to the Blockboster on Debarr Road.

Manchester City wins title with Manchester United loss
He is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League title - a prize he says is the hardest to claim in Europe. A win for United could have only derailed City's deserved league title victory, but West Brom had different ideas.


As has been previously reported, Alaska is home to over 50% of the country's final Blockbuster stores.

Between the James Comey interview, U.S. airstrikes in Syria, and Paul Ryan's decision to not seek reelection, John Oliver had a lot of material to work in last week's packed news cycle, but the Last Week Tonight host was particularly stuned by President Trump's use of a very infamous phrase. All the manager there needs to do to claim this stuff is to call within 48 hours.

"Yes, I'd display it", said Daymude, who first heard about Oliver's offer when his Facebook page "blew up" with messages Sunday night. "But if they are going to give it to us a blockbuster video in Alaska ..."
