Watch Nick Offerman Star in a Fake Home Depot Ad to Help John Oliver Prove a Point

1 minute read

As we all know, John Oliver loves to take things down. On Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight, one of his targets was Lowe’s recent announcement that it will be testing robotic shopping assistants at its hardware stores.

Naturally, Oliver thought that was a pretty dumb idea. “Robot assistants are a terrible idea,” he explains. “Sales associates at home-improvement stores are not there to help people buy things, they’re there to stop couples from tearing each other apart.”

To really drive that point home, Oliver recruited Nick Offerman, Sarah Baker and H. Jon Benjamin to star in a fake Home Depot ad. Because really, no robot can help repair (or at least distract from) the deep cracks in a couple’s marriage quite like a mustachioed home improvement expert.
