Video: John Oliver Lets RadioShack Have the Last Word

John Oliver is more than aware of your scoffing at RadioShack’s imminent closure.

On Sunday’s Season 2 premiere of Last Week Tonight, the comedian took a moment to speak about the struggling 94-year-old retailer, acknowledging how awful times must be when the “good” news is that half of your locations will remain open but ultimately be rebranded as Sprint stores.

As a means of sending his condolences, Oliver and the Last Week Tonight crew produced a condescending farewell message on the former electronic giant’s behalf, recognizing just how dismissive the American populace has been towards the RadioShack brand in the 21st century.

So hit the PLAY button above, and prepare to laugh you filthy animals!

    EVERY commercial on TV should be produced by Last Week Tonight!

      I like this idea. The one they came up with for how to tell if your physician was getting favors from pharmaceutical reps was excellent, too.
      This commercial was hilarious, and I love the message sent with it. Yeah, if you’re working in retail and watching longtime businesses either you worked in or visited struggling or shutting down, it’s not something to cheer or dismiss. It’s actually pretty sad, regardless of how “relevant” they are to most customers nowadays. I think everyone in retail should cheer a commercial like this.
