Turkey pardoning is a weird tradition. They’re basically all guilty…of being delicious.
Does that mean we should pardon butternut squash and brussle sprouts from having any part of Thanksgiving? They’re clearly innocent of being proper food.
here’s the other
The vegans are gunna hate this one..
Oh how I wish this was on EVERY week.
John I want my baby inside of you. I am a person but my baby is a turkey and I will personally feed him to you as you and I do thinds to you with a turkey baster usually reseved for lesbians who want a baby, but have no idea how conception works.
February. must be nice. ehh , can’t be too bitter, all that time off will get you riled up again and ready to expose the stupidest of the ridiculous once more! religion not paying taxes but having political influence would be a GREAT topic :X
“We’ll be back in February.” Just subtly slipped that in there. Are you shitting me man, how hard is your job that you have to take two months off? I don’t care if the stupid “season” has ended, get the hell back to work after the first week of January you lazy piece of s**ts!
Are you serious…he only has to make one show a week but he still needs a 3 month vacation. Jon stewart makes shows whole year round without ever need more than 2 weeks off at once. Cmon Jon Oliver
wait. why is the audience cheering? did he make people come to cheer him on a 2 min youtube vid?
How awesome would it be, if that Turkey pulled out a sharpened toothbrush from under his wing and shanked Obama. Said “Fuck ur pardon!” then committed suicide by throwing itself into a deep fryer.
Is John Oliver Gay?
Wait what they’ll be back February noooo who will fill the void of a British man yelling about American problems
Now all vegetarians LOVE you… *says sarcastically with a single raised eyebrow whilst looking over glasses*
John oliver you guys better talk about whats going on in Mexico, and an update on ferguson!
Yes. The vegans will not like this video and I am one of them. I love John’s work but those turkeys’ suffering is real and they have to endure it until their premature death. I am not trying to convince you all to go vegan, I only weep for any animal that suffers further due to the glorification of their murder.
I can abide the show being on hiatus until February as long as they keep giving us a steady trickle of content like this.
Also, where are they getting a live audience for a two-minute segment?
how does this have more likes than views…
I wonder if they pardon the same turkey every year, or if it’s just a procrastination of the inevitable? Or are turkeys too subject to the ‘can’t be tried for the same crime twice’ kinda deal?
why death to Turkey, Turkey is a great country !
It’s been two weeks since they uploaded a video and now it will be another two MONTHS??! :,(
I get that this is just a talking head with a team of writers, but something about hearing a British dude crack a joke about watching the Lions on Thanksgiving reminds me of how disingenuous and pointless these comedy news shows really are.
Just come back. Fuck the hiatus shit. You’re the best source of truthful news reporting out there today. We need you!
My grandpa had some turkeys once. He sentenced them to death for attempted murder on his chickens and peacocks.
Hopefully by the time February rolls around, HBO will let us give them our money to watch this on HBO Go.
I literally thought for a second that Turkey finally decided to officially apologize for Ottoman Empire and the spread of Islam. Got damn it, it’s only thanksgiving.
I cant believe it they are indeed pardoning a turkey in thanksgiving i thought it only happened in the movie “free birds” pardon me im not american, i dont celebrate thanksgiving, so im little appalled about this.
This tradiction reminds me of hunger game.
So the white turkey gets a pardon, but all the black turkeys can get killed and no one cares? That is racist! #Handsupdontshoot
A message for the vegans: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK, US AS THE HUMAN RACE WILL EVER STOP KILLING ANIMALS WHEN IN OUR ENTIRE HISTORY WE’VE BEEN SLAUGHTERING EACH OTHER SINCE WE’VE EXISTED?!
This makes me hungry for some roasted dead bird carcass.
@bballercheetahfan3 well,to be fair, Jon Stewart has been at this for a lot longer then John Oliver, although this John has been on Jons show repeatedly, I’d say he hasn’t exactly sat in the big chair long enough to handle all that weight just yet. Perhaps he had other projects he was working on. Who knows?
Maybe sitting in the big chair for the first time was overwhelming. Idk. I’m falling asleep as im typing this out. Imma stop.
Is he mocking the president, endorsing eating turkey or mocking people who eat turkeys? Or everyone?
i don’t understand… if this is a web exclusive why is there an audience?
Hey John… this was in poor taste..Even though I am not a vegetarian myself, the fact that 46 million birds are slaughtered for a single holiday makes me uncomfortable. To make light of this gruesome tradition is reprehensible. Would you have a similar funny take on sharks and whales ? Of course not, as they are hunted by Asians and its not acceptable in the Western world!
Is that a pyramid on the background in the right?
You hurt me when you stay away, #JohnOliver. Hurt me real bad. #LastWeekEveryTonight
Oh gosh. I’m feeling the withdrawal already. Current side effects include (but are not limited to): ignorance of what is going on around the world, lack of laughter and checking youtube for any other source of entertainment.
Fuck all vegetarians. I will eat meat that humans have slaughtered the way I want too. They taste so damn good, fuck not eating them. FUCK YOU VEGANS.
I know that Americans think us Brits are wierd and everyone looks, sounds and acts like Benny Hill. But wow Turkey Pardoning? really? At least we just watch the Queen’s speech and fall asleep halfway through “The Sound of Music”
Poor turkeys. They’re not hurting us.
Wait,is this show cancelled
Hey, turkey are people too, just like corporations.
This is a clear case of executive overreach. His Excellency, King Obama, is stabbing Congress in the back to make this unilateral decision that can only result in encouraging other turkeys to flagrantly flout the law of the land. Democracy died America cried. RIP USA 1776-2008
*Sigh* Come on guys, this is a comedy video. Why the hell are there even people spewing hate about muslims in the comment section? This is freaking ridiculous!
Vegans and Vegetarians are the most self important and condescending people in the world. I have many opinions/ideals I think would vastly improve the planet if everybody adhered to them, but it’s not my place to go around bullying people or pushing my agenda on them at every opportunity I get. I’m an atheist for example, but I don’t drool waiting for Easter to hop on a pulpit and tell everyone else they should be like me. It’s really obnoxious. To each their own.
John Oliver’s getting quite popular… He’s only the second “John” in the YouTube search bar after “John Legend”, pat yourself on the back because you’ve finally hit the big time!!
I have not seen John oliver in two weeks. Where has he been?
When is the new season coming?
Good evening, fellow YouTubers 🙂
I’m German and I love these clips of John Oliver on YT. Sadly, the uploads stopped three weeks ago. Does somebody have any info about why that happened? Maybe I just can see newer ones due to national restrictions or what so ever… Also, some other questions: How often does the show air? And is everything put to YT or just some highlights? I would love to see so much more, but I can’t find anything about it.
Please be so kind to help me out. Thanks in advance :)
The next episode should be about the North Korea attacking Sony company and forcing the American cinemas of declining the “Interview” movie.
Dear John, can you please return, news is boring… you might be english but this american TV, you can’t work for 2 months a year and rest the other 10… this is not UK!!
Roi (from Israel)
He who passes the sentence should swing the cleaver.
Why does this guy even try?
Do you know what the sad thing is, we could be laughing at North Korea right now! John, you and your fucking hiatus!
Why are you gone!? My weeks have lost so much structure… Sadness
Just gonna stalk all the old videos because I, the internet person, am lonely and sad and alone without you – you who is not even a person but a lot of persons. Writing this on Christmas because what else could be sadder? We miss you our holy champion, o saviour of the nerds! Come back, come baaaaaaaaaaaaaack….
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Turkey Pardoning (Web Exclusive)
I just discovered this channel a few hours ago and am now binge watching every single episode. I don’t know who you are, John Oliver, but thank you for proving oce more (and once more, and once more) that USA is a nuthouse. Boosts my European self-esteem sort of speak.
Mr.Oliver, Where have you been lately? I’ve seen every video clip you’ve made and keep checking back to see more. Your videos are works of art really like the way the show is setup. Miss the show can’t wait for whats in store for next year. Happy Holidays.
Vegetarian: “You eat meat? Ew how disgusting, you know how they kill those poor animals? You’re a cruel person blah blah blah.” Snubs nose at you*
Normal Person: “Wow, what a snobby asshole.”
John Oliver is missing the point about WHY the PRESIDENT spares 1 turkey… its always a unique turkey who is spared, and the owner gets a nice money boost and is told to breed it, so that future turkeys will be as good (if not better) than the one that is spared… thus packing more meat on the species yearly… we call it “selective breeding” you see the point?
i am super high atm… lol.
Just tried hacks.sexy/castleclash – I got free Castle Clash gems here! Get yours too in less than one minute!! (7wnD0YJcPV)
how does he have a live audience when they are not on air? I’m confused
i just know there’s a turk going “i feel a disturbance in the force”
Food, good food done right.
The Theory of Life
The Theory of Life states that to find the meaning of Life/God, one must first understand The Law of Nature
The Law of Nature states that Enlightenment is the cause of behaviors. What is behavior? the way in which one acts or conducts oneself, especially toward others.
What is Enlightenment? Enlightenment is a Sense of Self that is reached by the research and analysis of both Knowledge and Understanding.
What is Sense of Self? The value of which relates to how one perceives Truth or Deception.
What are the Forces of Nature? Energy and Strength attributed to emotion caused by the degree of which one is Enlightened.
What is Knowledge? What we know. Pure data.
What is Understanding? The application of data based upon the principles of Truth and Deception.
What is Truth? of great significance or value; likely to have a profound effect on success, survival, or well-being.
What is Deception? of little or no significance or value; also likely to have a profound effect on success, survival, or well-being.
What is a force? strength or energy as an attribute of action or movement.
The Law of Nature states that forces can be physical or mental. What is mental? of or relating to the mind.
What is physical? of or relating to the body.
The Law of Nature states that the only causes of Human Experience is caused by Human Intent. What is Human Interaction? a thing intended; an aim or plan of that of Humanity.
What is Experience? The combination of disaster/chaos and pleasure/love.
What is disaster/chaos? a sudden event, such as an accident or a natural or unnatural (human intent) catastrophe, that causes great damage or loss of life.
What is pleasure/love? a feeling of happy satisfaction and enjoyment.
The Law of Nature states that to reach Pure Experience/Heaven, one must have Pure Resource Management.
What is Pure Experience? Experience with the absence of disaster/chaos for the intent of Unity.
What is Pure Resource Management? Supply is greater than or equal to Demand.
The Law of Nature states that to reach Corrupt Experience/Hell, on must have Unpure Resource Management.
What is Corrupt Experience? Experience with the absence of pleasure/love for the intent of Solitude.
What is Unpure Resource Management? Supply is less than Demand.
The Law of Nature states that emotions that are synonomous are of the same Forces of Nature. What are The Forces of Nature? The forces that control emotion, desire, inspiration, and application of Human Behaviors. They are composed of two contrasting forces, The Force of Love/The Force of Chaos, and one neutral force, The Force of Self.
What is The Force of Love/Heaven? It is an uncontrollable Force of Nature of which leads to Pure Experience.
What is The Force of Chaos/Hell? An uncontrollable Force of Nature of which leads to Impure Experience.
What is The Force of Self/Purgatory? A controllable Force of Nature of which can be lead to either Impure or Pure Experience. The only control of this is human willpower/ego/individuality.
The Law of Nature states that there is no true good, or true evil. Chaos can be used to reach Pure Experience. Love can be used to reach Impure Experience.
The Theory of Life Life is a collection of intelligence of which purpose is to: 1. Learn or Remain Ignorant 2. Destroy or Build 3. Hunt or Gather 4. Be together or Be alone
Physical forces can only be applied to pysical things/matter Mental forces can only be applied to mental things/thought/emotions.
To use a force, one must have intelligence. This must mean, that the Forces of Nature are being applied by some system of Intelligence. Greater Intelligence as we know it can be proven to exist with proper uses of psychedelics.
Why should we trust psychedelics? Most Native cultures use them. They got half the coin. Western Civilization has the other half.
What does this all mean? War shouldn’t exist. It’s not the most productive answer. If we lead to violence for answers…we’ll go to hell/Impure Experience
Fear isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can be used out of the intent of the user who is the only one that can make it bad or good.
For example: In the Taiga, trappers train there dogs to learn that traps are dangerous so they’ll stay away from the food. This is really productive.
What does that mean? Yin and Yang exists.
Why does that matter? We can stop descriminating against religions.
If this is true. We have the knowledge to stop all sicknesses from spreading both literally and metaphorically.
If this is true, research into what are illegal drugs will be accessible.
If this is true, the corrupt systems will be exposed. Pharmaceutical companies Government – built off of fear and deceit Colleges – Only half the truths…not asking the question “How is this important” Prison Systems – The systems are literally designed for people to come back. Punishment without education. Yin/Yang will only lead to Chaos. Foreign Trade Policies – Do I have to mention that it took forever for us to start trading with Cuba again? Healthcare – They only develop medicines to sell…they are even addictive even though evidence shows of better alternatives. BANKS – they should be libraries of technology…not money. IMO. Television – It just shows you what doesn’t matter under the guise that it does…like most Media. Car Manufacturers – Instead of grouping together with the people who have awesome innovations…they continue to yearly reproduce a barely better vehicle while consuming and wasting resources The education system itself – it’s built off of profit, not education.
I forgot how funny these videos are.
February can’t come fast enough. I love this man
Eat the bird! Put the silly act of pardoning the turkey behind us!
Speaking of turkeys, how about those guys that put Ted Cruz in charge of NASA!!
his dimples are so adorable
Does anybody know that how can I watch a full episode online??If it is free that would be better.
I am Turkish and I am offended by this video.
I’ll have you anytime John Oliver.
I am not a fan of turkey. I force my way through it on Christmas, but chicken is just better in every way.
869 turkeys disliked this
The President should do a Game of Thrones reenactment of Ned Stark’s death complete with a King Joffrey impersonation. The turkey being Ned Stark, of course.
*Oliver waves his hands around himself* Yes, John, you are pretty hot.
The country of Turkey is being sentenced to death for having delicious bird parts?
Death to turkey…well that surely cant be misunderstood.
RACIST BETCH GO TO HELL
Reminds me of the West Wing turkey pardoning episode.
CJ: “One of them gets a full life at a children’s zoo, the other….gets eaten!”
President Bartlet: “If the Oscars were like that, I’d watch.”
I rather be a turkey than ISIS.
I love you, Jon Oliver.
Oh, wait, that doesn’t look right. I’m not a dude! I’m a chick, and I love you, Jon Oliver.
And I was hoping this was about the Armenian Genocide…
oh, i see, it’s funny because instead of doing the ethical logical thing, John Oliver is advocating for being a complete piece of shit. cool cool. yeah… fuck treating other sentient beings with respect.. that would be ridiculous… we should just keep killing for the lolz and under no circumstances question our actions or beliefs. that makes sense, right?
“He who passes the sentence, must swing the sword.”
The turkey goes to a park called Frying Pan. No joke, it is on frying pan road.
the man who says the sentence should swing the sword
*obligatory vegan comment*
