John Oliver Hits His Late-Night Rivals in the Face With a Fish

Last night, John Oliver wrapped up the terrific first season of Last Week Tonight in the only way that makes sense: hitting people in the face with salmon. Why is that reasonable? Shut up and see all the famous people (and one droid) get salmon-cannoned. If you want to be surprised, click to watch it now and don’t read this list of some of the people who got fish-slapped: Tom Hanks, Kelly Ripa, Anderson Cooper, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Homer Simpson, J.J. Abrams, R2D2, Meredith Grey, and Seth Meyers. Just try to leave this video without a craving for lox.

Also, since it’s the season finale, we wanted to share his last long-form bit: Watch Oliver take on the lottery below. You have a 100 percent chance of winning some laughs.
