Watch John Oliver Take On Internet Trolls on Last Week Tonight

John Oliver Rick-rolled his entire audience

John Oliver took on Internet trolls on this week’s Last Week Tonight with the help of some “vintage AOL ads.”

The Internet was supposed to change the world, but it has become a place where you can see “glamour shots of cats” and “angora show bunnies” or rickroll your entire audience with a clip of Rick Astley singing “Never Gonna Give You Up” (twice). It’s also become a place to say horrifying things to complete strangers and dabble in revenge porn, according to Oliver.

In his weekly missive, Oliver not only addressed GamerGate and the online abuse of women like Anita Sarkeesian and others who dare to state their opinion online, but also called out the “vindictive perverts” that disseminate so-called revenge porn on the web. While only 23 states have enacted statutes banning revenge porn, according to Oliver, in the other 27 states, revenge porn is something that should be illegal, but isn’t, “like using a golf umbrella in Manhattan.”

While websites like Google and Reddit have banned revenge porn, the Internet can still be a scary place for women. To warn women and their allies, Oliver updated those vintage AOL ads making the dangers of the web much more obvious.

Watch Iggy Azalea and James Corden Sing Car Karaoke in Wedding Dresses

For a segment of the Late Late Show

Iggy Azalea may have disappointed her fans when she cancelled her Great Escape Tour, but she found a way to make it up to them — singing her biggest hits with James Corden for carpool karaoke on the Late Late Show. While it’s fun to watch Azalea and Corden drive around and sing “Fancy” and “Black Widow,” that wasn’t the only surprise in store for fans.

Corden not only got the singer to spill the origins of her name, but also convinced her to let him officiate her wedding to L.A. Lakers star Nick Young if he became ordained. That’s when the Australian-born pop rapper admitted she had already had started working with a wedding planner for her celebration, but swore she wasn’t going to become a bridezilla. She then shared some of the details of her big day, including wanting to have R. Kelly perform as well as Demi Lovato, who will also be one of her bridesmaids.

All the talk of weddings was too much for Corden to handle, so he pulled over at a bridal shop so he and Azalea could try on some not-quite-matching wedding dresses.


You Can Now Watch All 6 Star Wars Movies At The Same Time

Purists may not want to watch

If you’re looking for a way to get your Star Wars fix before Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out in December, the internet has provided a unique solution, which is the Star Wars equivalent of shotgunning a beer (or, you know, something classier).

YouTube user maurcs (a.k.a. filmmaker and senior Archer animator Marcus Rosentrater) has created a video that layers all six of the Star Wars films on top of one another so you can watch them simultaneously. It’s a neat trick, but no one could walk away from viewing the full two hours and 22 minute video with any idea about the plot of any of the movies. Still, it’s a strangely mesmerizing piece that feels like a kaleidoscope of Star Wars characters, locations and battles bleeding into each other.

The best part is that Jar Jar Binks disappears into the melange, making it easy to simply pretend he was never there at all.

The Bachelorette Recap: Will You Mariachi Me?

Welcome back to The Bachelorette, where we rejoin Kaitlyn’s journey to find Love and Truth and a man who is here for the right reasons and looks good in roses and isn’t wearing too much cologne (just guessing about that last part). When we last saw our fun-loving, loud-laughing heroine, she was considering giving Nick V. another chance at love. While even onion-loving Ashley S. thinks it’s a bad idea, Kaitlyn decides she has to trust her heart and invites Nick on to the show. She swears that she didn’t want to hurt the guys’ feelings, but did anyway.

Here’s what happened on The Bachelorette:

The Nick Situation: When we last saw Nick, he was engaged in the hellish act of trying to pull a suitcase through Times Square, a torture so horrible that even the Greek gods couldn’t have devised it. After that travail, he had to go to a hotel room with a dozen men who hated the fact that he was there to prove he was there for the right reason. Nick swears to the men that he is not there to cause drama or to make a scene, but because he likes Kaitlyn. The men prove that they are well read on their supermarket tabloids and grill Nick about the fact that he hung out with Bachelorette Andi a month ago. Nick swore it was just to bury the hatchet (in her back, probably). He swears he is here for Kaitlyn, but one man demands to know whether she is “just a cool chick or an amazing woman to you?” but there is no right answer to that question.

The Cocktail Party: The men take over Citi Field, because with the addition of Nick, they don’t fit anywhere else in New York City and/or the Yankees don’t have time for this nonsense. The men are not thrilled to have Nick in their midst, but J.J., who is not here to make friends anyway, doesn’t care and takes advantage of the awkwardness to get some alone time with Kaitlyn. He picks her up and runs the bases, but does not score a home run. (That comes later in the season, hopefully with someone else.)

The Rose Ceremony (Finally!): Kaitlyn walks the men out to shiver on the field and lines them up like it’s an execution (of hearts). To recap, Jared, Justin and the dentist already have roses. So Ben H. gets the first rose, followed by the other Ben, Shawn, Tanner, Joe, Ian, J.J., Joshua, and then Chris Harrison finally shows up to announce that it’s time for the final rose. Obviously it goes to Nick, because why else is he here? Ryan, Jonathan and some other guy who does not look even mildly familiar (maybe he’s a Met hanging out in the off-season?) are sent home, and the men grumble that Nick took a rose that belonged to someone more deserving. In case you didn’t think Kaitlyn was a good actress, she probably earned herself an Emmy nod for being able to say that she’s “always wanted to go” to San Antonio with a straight face.

First Date: Kaitlyn wants to get to know Nick, but not as much as she wants to get to know Ben H. For their trip to San Antonio, they have a true Texas date complete with flannel and denim, cowboy boots, red Ford trucks, country dancing and lots of dance-as-marriage metaphors. They compete in a dance competition and lose, so Kaitlyn vandalizes the oldest dance hall in Texas with a “K + B” in a heart. Then they make out outside to give the old folks something to talk about. Over dinner, Kaitlyn doesn’t want to talk about his past relationships, but totally does. So he tells her about his broken engagement over their uneaten entrées. He passes her “openness” test, which is only nominally different from a Scientology personality test, and earns a Date Rose (from Kaitlyn, not Xenu).

Group Date: While everyone expects Nick to get the remaining one-on-one date, Kaitlyn surprises them by dunking him in the deep end of a group date to see if he will sink or swim like a witch. This week’s challenge is to write and sing a mariachi song — and to steal Kaitlyn’s heart back from the most adorably, brash little mariachi muchacho ever, Sebastian De La Cruz and his band El Charro De Oro. The men dress in traditional outfits and embarrass themselves by serenading Kaitlyn with their own mariachi songs. As the newbie, Nick knows he has to go big or go home, so he makes an extra spectacular spectacle of himself. As Jared says, “Nick has the worst voice I’ve ever heard, but he owns it.”

The After Party: Josh decided to use a haircut as a metaphor for marriage and it did not work out well. He trusts Kaitlyn, but apparently she was not worthy of that trust and Josh ended up with a half-bald head and all the men laughing at him. Nick uses his time with Kaitlyn to make out with her, which does not make Josh any happier. So Josh and his half head of hair go to tattle to Kaitlyn that he doesn’t think Nick is here for the right reasons. Josh says everyone hates Nick being there and is lying to her about it. She decided to confront the men about their “dishonesty,” but they all deny it and Josh looks like a troublemaker and Nick gets the Date Rose.

Second Date: Kaitlyn invited Shawn to go kayaking in San Antonio, and they spend the bulk of their time together talking about Nick and Josh, which are the most romantic conversation topics. Then they make out on a bridge. Later they snuggle by a campfire and Shawn opens up about being hit by a car and then tells her that he is falling in love with her. Kaitlyn tells the camera that it felt “like her husband” telling her that. She hands him the Date Rose and informs the camera that she feels like she is falling in love with Shawn.

The Alamo: Ian decides he has had enough, and if Kaitlyn doesn’t want to date a Princeton man who has been around the world a few times, he’s going to go home. Does she know he went to Princeton? Maybe he should mention it a few more times to make sure she is aware of that fact.

The Cocktail Party: Kaitlyn makes all the men toast to honesty before spending some alone time with each of them. Jared tells her he’s falling in love with her, and she makes out with him while thinking of Shawn. Meanwhile, Ian is on a tear because “against all his logic,” Kaitlyn doesn’t seem to like him and “he’s a gift you unwrap for life.” He sits her down on a couch and tells her that he thought she was going to be brokenhearted and despondent over getting dumped by Chris, and he is disappointed to see that she’s recovered from that heartbreak and now just wants to make out with a bunch of hot guys. He’s not into her and is going to make sure she knows it. Strangely he didn’t mention Princeton even once. Maybe that will happen … next week on The Bachelorette.

Humming the Game of Thrones Theme Tune Can Have Serious Consequences

To Westeros!

Every office seems to have at least one person who hums and it’s always distracting to hear bars of Beethoven, the Beatles or Berlin floating through the air while you are trying to work. But when someone starts humming the theme song to Game of Thrones it’s not just distracting, it’s a noble and glorious disruption — at least according to a new video from College Humor.

There’s something about the show’s long opening theme song that stirs the blood and makes you yearn for Westeros. The tune could also lead you to believe that “Winter is Coming” to your cubicle and the only option is to march into war and/or the conference room.

While work day disruptions are usually frowned upon by HR, reenacting the Game of Thrones opening sequence is the best way to kill time until the new season starts next year.

John Oliver Conscripts Helen Mirren to Read the Senate’s Report on Torture

Blame Jack Bauer

While John Oliver took a moment to respond to embattled FIFA executive Jack Warner’s assertion that he was a “comedian fool,” a title Oliver did not dispute, the real brunt of the political force of Last Week Tonight was focused on the Senate Intelligence Committee Study on CIA Torture.

Despite the Senate’s findings that the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” were not effective, 57% of Americans believe that torture can work to prevent terror attacks, while only 46% of Americans believe in the Big Bang theory, according to Oliver. Oliver thinks this might be beacause torture always works on television, specifically on 24. Jack Bauer’s interrogations are so effective that Justice Antonin Scalia even referenced him in the Supreme Court, according to Oliver.

Despite the effectiveness of Bauer’s fictional torture techniques, the “advanced interrogation” techniques listed in the report were so graphic that not even Helen Mirren could make them appealing — and she tried. Oliver somehow convinced the Oscar-winning actress to read aloud passages of the report and the results are jarring. Warning: you may never look at hummus the same way again.

Watch Jon Stewart Get Mercilessly Teased By The Daily Show Staff and Mark Ruffalo

Looks like someone hasn't been doing his homework

The Daily Show
Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive

Jon Stewart is a busy man. As the host on The Daily Show, he interviews four or five guests a week, each of whom are hawking a movie or a book or some other important cultural event. With that many guests, Stewart can’t possible be expected to watch every movie and read every single book to prepare for his interview with the author. After all, Stewart has other hosting duties to perform, jokes to write, a family to see and a life to live.

While the fact that Stewart doesn’t always do his homework is understandable, that doesn’t mean that his staff can’t tease him about it. In a new video, introduced by Mark Ruffalo, some evil genius on The Daily Show staff has made a supercut of all the times that Stewart didn’t quite get a chance to prepare for his interviews.

The Piano Guys Take On The Jurassic World Sonatas

Beauty and dinosaurs

The Jurassic World sonatas may have originated as part of the soundtrack to the uber-dino action flick Jurassic Park, but in the skilled hands of internet sensation the Piano Guys, the scores are heart-wrenching and beautiful.

The Piano Guys are part of that rare corner of the internet where truly talented performers become viral video stars.

Their timely take on the Jurassic World sonatas is just further proof that the Guys know how to tap into the internet zeitgeist.

Watch Kit Harington Judge a Jon Snow Impersonator Competition

Jon Snow sounds good even when reading a box of Frosties

Kit Harington’s Jon Snow has had a rough go of it on Game of Thrones. His father was beheaded, his siblings scattered and his time on The Wall has been marked by unrest and threats from the South, North and within. None of that prepared Harington for what he faced last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Kimmel wasn’t content to have one Jon Snow on the show so when Harington stopped by, Kimmel invited three of the internet’s finest Jon Snow impersonators for a Jon Snow-off. On Game of Thrones, Snow is limited to conversations about White Walkers, life among the Crows and sorrow, but on Kimmel the Snow sound-alikes were given less tragic material to work with. Specifically, a box of Frosties, a real-estate listing and a bottle of Pantene shampoo. Needless to say the phrase “zero heavy build up” has never sounded so life or death.
