    I agree that smoking ain’t good, but I think Australia has gone too far
    with the images. Then again, it’s a country with irrationally-strict gun
    laws (virtually entirely banned with a few exceptions). The government
    should never have to protect it’s citizens to this extent.

    jehovah bless you, mr oliver

    With the announcement of Jon Stewart’s retirement, it’s good to know that
    John Oliver will still be here.

    John Oliver for President!

    The joke about U2 was not cool John!!! I absolutely love you, and I must
    confess I laugh about it, but not cool!!! ;)

    Too much smoking is bad. Too much sugar is bad. Too much alcohol is bad. No
    one eats a Twinky and says ” this shit is healthy” no one does that with
    alcohol or tobacco either. They should put pictures of people with toes
    missing on the box of Ho-ho’s and twinkies. They should put a picture of a
    diseased liver on your Smirnoff bottles. See how ridiculous this is? More
    people die from alcohol than cigarettes. Seriously shut the fuck up.

    NOW you got me UPSET, John Oliver. That “maybe” campaign is NOTHING like
    horse shit! As a lifetime gardener, I think everyone should get a pile of
    horse shit from the government, to make their garden prosper! Don’t EVER
    compare advertising or cigarettes to a WONDERFUL pile of horse shit.

    4:58 ‘Fuck’ censored.
    5:38 ‘Shit’ not censored.
    Hm.

  16. theo9e6 says:

    Oh John Oliver… 😀 this clip will come very expensive!

  17. AJ Churchill says:

    I like the segment and its message, but it seems a bit hypocritical to ask
    for everyone to spread Jeff around whilst limiting this video’s playback to
    only the USA.

    Best Investigative Journalist on Television, also funny as fuck too

    Just WHAT have you got against vegetarian animal poop,JOHN OLIVER. Now you
    insulted “bull shit” too. Maybe you need to use “dog shit” or “human shit”
    for your reference. Those are pretty disgusting!
