John Oliver Reveals Reason He Paid $7000 For Russell Crowe's Leather Jockstrap

John Oliver spends $7K on Russell Crowe’s leather jockstrap

After airing a clip showing a telephone bidder paying a whopping $7,000 for Crowe's jockstrap, Oliver then insisted, "The bad news is we didn't do it". The auction, which Crowe called "The Art of Divorce", was as one might imagine, a cleaning house sale in the aftermath of his divorce.

Blockbuster was once synonymous with movie nights with thousands of video rental stores across the country, but today has just a handful of locations still operating.

The actor recently held a "divorce auction" on what would have been he and ex-wife Danielle Spencer's wedding anniversary.

Watch the full 16-minutes segment below, but the main takeaway is pretty simple: "We just had a huge chance to reform our tax code and we absolutely blew it", Oliver said.

For five seasons, John Oliver and his team at HBO's "Last Week Tonight" have pulled absurd pranks such as starting a church and buying commercial time during "Fox & Friends" in an attempt to Trojan horse information to President Trump.

The show also bought a pair of shorts and a robe from the same film, as well as a hood Crowe wore in Robin Hood, a vest from Les Miserables, and more.

However, these items may not be with Oliver for long.

"To the manager of the only remaining Blockbuster in Alaska, all of this shit is yours", Oliver said after giving viewers a guided tour of the Crowe items.

All the Anchorage Blockbuster has to do is contact Last Week Tonight within 48 hours to claim the items!

As of this filing on Monday morning, it is not clear if the store has been in touch with Oliver.
