John Oliver bought 4 minutes of Trinidadian TV ad space to get this message to Jack Warner

TV6 are raking in the cash these days.

JOHN OLIVER IS really enjoying the production budgets since moving from Comedy Central to his own show at HBO.

I mean, the Daily Show would never have been able to dream about shelling out for four and a half minutes of ad space, let alone in Caribbean islands with a combined population that’s lower than The Bronx.

On his show on Sunday night, Oliver fulfilled his promise of drinking down some citrus-flavoured American beer, fulfilling his side of a a promise after Sepp Blatter’s resignation. But that wasn’t the end, Oliver also responded to Warner’s broadcast on Trinidad’s TV 6 ‘Jack Warner, the gloves are off’ with his own hand-wear themed address which aired during prime time last night.
