John Oliver's HBO Show Bought Russell Crowe's 'Cinderella Man' Jockstrap for $7000

On Sunday night, John Oliver brought the kind of broad-ranging answer to Cardi's question-at one point addressing her directly-with the kind of thoroughness, unflinching perspective, and hilarity for which Last Week Tonight has become known.

Along with that piece, the HBO show also bought a pair of shorts and robe from the 2005 boxing film.

First, an update on the once-ubiquitous Blockbuster chain: there are still four operating Blockbuster stores in the United States. "But if they are going to give it to us a blockbuster video in Alaska ..."

Oliver kicked off the fun reveal explaining that a few Blockbusters had survived in Alaska long after they had disappeared in the continental USA because of slower streaming services and more expensive rates in that state, but they had slowly died off.

New Teaser Confirms That OnePlus 6 will be Water Resistant
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau posted some new OnePlus 6 camera samples to his Weibo account which is the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. The camera on the OnePlus 6 might carry the same type of sensor, but this will be improved with better image processing.

After airing a clip showing a telephone bidder paying a whopping $7,000 for Crowe's jockstrap, Oliver then insisted, "The bad news is we didn't do it".

"Are you not entertained?", Oliver shouted, quoting from Crowe's film Gladiator, as he placed the jockstrap in a glass display case on his desk after revealing he'd purchased it. After introducing the segment with a nostalgia-fueled look back at Blockbuster, during which the show sourced KTUU's reporting, Oliver said he hopes to send the Crowe memorabilia to the Blockboster on Debarr Road.

"To the manager of the only remaining Blockbuster in Anchorage, Alaska, all of this s-- is yours", Oliver said. "Just call us in the next 48 hours and we will send it to you".
