John Oliver eviscerated FIFA and the World Cup

Monday June 9th, 2014

John Oliver is from a country that loves soccer, and he is no exception.

He devoted a segment of his show to exploring the World Cup using the sausage principle -- the idea that if you love something, you should never find out how it's made.

In this 13-minute segment, Oliver tears apart FIFA and their World Cup preparations. Soccer fans, he'll definitely make you laugh, but that doesn't mean you'll be happy when you've found out how the World Cup is made.
