Comedian and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver responded to ex-FIFA official and wanted man Jack Warner’s wild “The Gloves Are Off” paid political program by buying his own airtime on Trinidad television and airing a parody titled “The Mittens Of Disapproval Are On.” We recorded it, and you can watch it above.
Oliver’s program was recorded from his Last Week Tonight studio, with the usual studio audience. He used the airtime to beg Jack Warner to “release everything” because “I’ve been looking through the indictment and... good luck with that.”
The four-minute segment aired directly after an episode of 24 and pre-empted the first few minutes of Mike & Molly. TV6 is Trinidad’s largest private television broadcaster.
