Kommentaarid

  • This is journalism. Fox, CNN, everyone - this is what journalism should look like. You identify an issue. You investigate that issue. You report on that issue in great detail. Obviously they're doing this with humor here but at the center of it is actually really good journalism.

  • I got a robocall while watching this

  • The goober line killed me

  • Got a robocall while watching this

  • My favorite ones were about my credit card and car warranty, when I was 10 and had neither.

  • Here is a quote from John Oliver calling for the harassment of another talk show host. MSNBC article dated today. "I would argue that Tucker is actually a good example of an internet pile-on being merited," Oliver said. Karma is a strong ally for the righteous.

  • I got a robocall in the middle of watching this video

  • It is really quite shameful how little our government is doing to protect us from scammers, identity thieves, and people who want to track our every move... our government has become pretty much AWOL in actually doing things to make people's lives better and more secure. They've completely sold out to corporate interests...

  • This is gold. I love Last Week Tonight so much.

  • I want an update of with the FCC on here if this legit happened

  • Did they just actually fucking robocall the FCC?

  • 2:02 there is no phonecall, he fakes answering a call

  • Disgusting man who has sex with children

  • #andrewyang2020 says he would make robo calls illegal.

  • John really just dabbed on the FCC

  • 348 W 57th. Street, #301 New York NY 10019

  • This man is my hero.

  • who cheap? His Alter is never named, but he has the power to manipulate watermelons and use them as bombs, protective barriers, platforms and teleportation devices(By stepping inside a giant watermelon, having it shrink to nothing, then having it grow anew in a different location, with him still inside it.). He can make them grow huge until they crush an opponent, turn an entire building into a watermelon for a second (thus destroying it when it turns back, somehow).

  • If the robo calls are anything to go on, I've been investigated by the IRS 12 times. They'll never catch me.

  • The 4th Law of robotics: No robot shall be able to say, type, transmit or render in any other way the phrase "✅ I'm not a robot."

  • John Oliver and his team are superheroes.

  • Hey I remember Tom Wheeler! Kind of looks like a dingo...

  • John Oliver=Dirt Bag. What a loser! Steve Allen, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno to this hot mess.

  • Just got a robocall while watching this.

  • “We’re calling because your car’s warranty is about to expire.” Me: Oh wow, what kind of car do I have? Scammer: “For security purposes we cannot tell you what car we have on file for you?” Me: you’ve done a convincing job here’s all of my sensitive information😈

  • AT&T inherited a problem child! I'm dead

  • This is my favourite John Oliver clip by far, regards from Africa

  • Ajit Pai: "Excuse me, gentlemen, it appears that I may have won a cruise" Let's be honest, folks. The only cruise offers he gets are from ISP lobbyists.

  • Buy stamps you English goober!

  • I get slightly more disturbed every time John says "business daddy". Please no more.

  • Found the address stop at 16:57 btw

  • What do you mean a Goober can't be president? We have one right now!!!!!

  • Buy a Google Pixel 3 and never deal with robocalls again. Call Screening baby.

  • "But the thing is we shouldn't be entirely up to us to deal with it"... yup, just like [insert any form of harassment existing that people always find a way to victim blame about] [insert any group/minority/target of that are victim of that harassment] can, we can take the prevention we can possibly and theoretically imagine, it is not to the victim to fucking do all the effort.

  • I found the Address: 349 W 58th, Street #302, New York, NY 10020.

  • Since I don't have a landline and all calls go through my cell, If there's no name attached to the number calling I just don't answer. If it's important they can leave a message, which they never do. That's how I deal with robo calls. I can positively say I can't remember the last time I picked up for a number I didn't recognize, but if I did and heard the robot on the other end, I would just hang up. It's interesting to look up the numbers and find out, although they might have your area code ,they are 300 miles away or in another state.

  • These calls are almost as robotic as the host!

  • seems like your phone pre loaded with robo callers ? only gave my number out to 3 people in my family?

  • How is this show real again?

  • Please cover upcoming Indian Elections.

  • I found the address but I refuse to post it out of principle.

  • @10:02 i do stuff like this when im bored. that is either a bot or a psychopath

  • @8:43 yep... same here

  • Love that social security #!

  • 10:13 That robot is amazing and I feel terrible for her

  • OMG! And this is why Last Week Tonight keeps winning Emmy awards

  • Without legislation we already have all major mobile carriers providing free spam blocking services, and they are in the process of implementing STIR/SHAKEN protocols based on urging from the FCC and customers. Shockingly not every problem requires federal legislation. Crazy I know.

  • Hilarious and yet the f bombs and language is off putting...

  • kegl.iheart.com/content/2019-03-12-how-to-turn-robocalls-into-cash-robocallscash/

  • This might not get a lot of likes, but the address is 348 W 57th Street, #301, New York, NY 10019. Don't tell the FCC!

  • 348 W 57th. Street #301, New York NY 10019

  • Oh and do you see Monica Lewinsky climbing on the me too wagon NO!! She stands for everything a strong woman truly is. Glad she hasnt come to suck yours like you are demanding john.. me too me too!!

  • The other day at my job I got 12 back to back robo calls from the same number. Every time I answered all I heard was a woman speaking Mandarin. It left 4 voicemails as well. Wild.

  • I love your show but Tucker Carlson is much more savage

  • There are e-mails like this too. They are contacting beneficiaries from Africa to transfer millions of dollars to us. Some even ask you to send them money for transfer fees.

  • FCC I saved you some time, "348 W 57th. Street, #301, New York, NY, 10019"

  • The one I get the most keeps telling me that its the FINAL courtesy call about the warranty of my car expiring. Despite being the final call, i've had about 200 of them. And the warranty on my car expired more than a decade ago. I am so damn sick of the USA being the bitch of corporations. They can't get any laws passed to curb ANY shit eating behavior because those lobbyists keep buying elected officials. Lobbyists should be rounded up and fucking executed. They are the reason nothing useful ever gets done. For instance, when the US realized its kids were turning into fatasses, it started requiring school lunches to serve vegetables. Well lobbyists stepped in and made the folks declare that FRENCH FRIES count as vegetables. So it defeats the entire purpose of the requirement and kids keep getting fatter just so motherfuckers can sell more french fries. Our entire system is fucked by this shit.

  • Is John Oliver always like this? Is he doing humor?

  • I think you are somewhat off on the depiction of¨meloning¨. It should at least involve two 45+ women and a happy young lad with a blush face. At least!

  • 3:12 I see why she missed that mortgage payment

  • The spoofing example was only awkward because that old woman looked so shaky and frail that she might throw the phone across the room

  • 7:47

  • Anyone else get the Scarlett Johansson Under the Skin reference?

  • this is fantastic.

  • Does every 90 minutes include the middle of the night?

  • OH MY GOD YOU ARE THE PROBLEM CHILD😂😂❤️

  • John Oliver makes me proud to be an American.

  • A paz

  • Hey HBO! how about an episode on article 13? before this shit gets passed...

  • The most creative Robocall is: You are going to be arrested immediately unless you call us back. LOLOLOLOLOLOL, please send over a good looking from officer!! LOLOLOLOL Preferably about 5'10' man of colour, dark hair or bald..........lolololol

  • [searches furiously yet relentlyessly for any github programs to automate calls so I only have to pick up when they do while having my number spoofed as Pais]

  • My mother gets nearly 15-20 calls A DAY. Some wanting to sell her back braces, others extensions on car insurance, even more trying to get her to sign up for their medical programs. My mom is a paraplegic, she can't drive, doesn't need a back brace since she can't walk. It's the insurance calls that are the most concerning. She has so many medical problems that need prior authorization that when she gets an insurance call it's really hard to tell if it's a real call from her actual company or a scammer. It would help if her insurance company didn't have numbers that come up at Wisconsin or Illinois. They use spoofing in a real legit business, so you don't call them back, so how the hell is she supposed to know to pick up or not?

  • A shit pie.

  • That robocall was creepy.

  • 8:30 - 11:30 IM DEAD ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL 😂

  • I’m just waiting for John Oliver to do an episode on meme culture 😂😭

    • "Hi! I'm John Oliver! what are memes? im not quite sure... but i heard you can piss people off by saying maymay and i REALLY enjoy pissing people off"

  • Ajit Pai is one of those rare people thats its perfectly ok to wish death upon

  • This is why I block or mark numbers as spam. Have you tried Google Voice?

  • European Union here... here it is absolutely prohibited for anyone but private persons to call anyone without them giving consent in advance. You can even go to jail for that. I never get any robocalls.

  • Several times I have had the caller ID show my own name and phone number being spoofed. Why in the world would I want to answer that? What are they thinking- that I am going to think it might be me calling myself from the future to warn me of the Terminator?

  • My God yall know are funny

  • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • ❤️'im❣️

  • stupid fucking dimple owl i love him

  • The address is 248 W 68th Street, #302, Philadelphia, TX 01134 - just in case you missed it, FCC! I got your back, guys.

  • 10:20 marina diamandis b like

  • Who got robocalled while watching this?

  • You fucking almost did it. I thought it was going to happen. I thought we were finally going to have the first episode in three years where you didn't have to throw in something about Trump. You made it 13 and a half minutes. Did it hurt, John? Did not insulting Trump for that long hurt? Man, I wish he would just go back to talking about the issue of the day and nothing else. It's like if he doesn't rag on Trump at least once, he won't get paid. And I don't even like the guy. Enough is enough.

    • Well, Trump is such an overwhelming moron, liar and cheat that his simple existance needs to be derided constantly. Any intelligent person does it as often as possible

  • I just got a call while watching this video....

  • why is this man even working for the FCC? he has no clue at all when it come to the internet or the tech that is used to make the internet the internet.

  • I thought spoofing was what youtubers did whenever they make parody videos

  • 348 W. 57th Street #301, New York NY 10019

  • Now for the spam emails........

  • Why is John Olivar talking about Robocalls? He usually just complains about trump all the time.

    • +Ronald Cammarata .. Hey Ronny, I'll be sure to tell the rest of the world that you have everything figured out. And we all will start to follow your advice since you are the moral authority.. lol

    • Trump IS worthy of constant derision, but John Oliver talks about many problems in this country besides Trump-though the Trumpster is by far the biggest problem.

  • Wow!

  • I WORK AT T-MOBILE, SO I WAS LIVING FOR THE AT&T JOKES 😂😂😂😂
