John Oliver On YouTube’s Conspiracy Nuts [VIDEO]

The Week recaps:

Last Week Tonight took a break for Easter, but John Oliver posted a special web-only video to celebrate the holiday. And he created it, he said, “in one of YouTube’s most entertaining forms. I’m talking, of course, about YouTube conspiracy videos, science fiction for people who don’t understand they’re watching science fiction.”

Whenever he watches one of these videos, he is “overcome with jealousy,” Oliver said, “jealously at the sheer scale of imagination required to believe that the Denver airport was designed by the Illuminati or that Katy Perry is actually JonBenét Ramsey all grown up — both real theories, by the way, and better than any joke I could ever devise in a million years.” He took a crack anyway.
