John Oliver, Mike Myers, a Beaver, and a Moose Offer Some Canadian Election Advice


Here’s a clip from last night’s Last Week Tonight, where John Oliver breaks down the importance behind today’s election day in Canada for Americans who haven’t paid attention: “And look, I know it’s hard for Americans to care about this, but think of it this way: Picture your next-door neighbor. You may not be great friends with her, but you’d be sad if she started dating a complete and utter dickhead.” Since there’s a law that prevents non-Canadians from swaying Canadians to vote for particular candidates, Oliver enlists the help of a beaver, moose, and celebrated Canadian Mike Myers to explain why our neighbors to the north definitely shouldn’t vote for current Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
