This comedian's hilarious mockery of Fifa and its 'Swiss demon' will brighten up your morning

This is just brilliant.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER John Oliver’s 13-minute segment on Fifa on his ‘Last Week Tonight’ show last year when he tore into football’s governing body.

Well, in light of last week’s incredible developments, the British comedian was at it again over the weekend as he launched into a hilarious take down of Fifa and its ‘Swiss demon’ President, Mr Josep S Blatter.

There are so many memorable lines like, ‘Fifa, the organisation that sounds the most like the name of a purse dog’ as Oliver highlights the farcical nature of how Blatter is running world of football.

However, his final plea for Fifa’s sponsors to pull the plug stands out.

“Because to truly kill a snake, you must cut off its head. Or in this case, its a***ole,” he says passionately.

“Barring an indictment, the only people with the power to get rid of Sepp Blatter are the sponsors, these companies, and I would like to make a plea to them tonight. Please, make Sepp Blatter go away,” he concluded.

Sit back and enjoy.
