Last Week Tonight host John Oliver is now receiving his highest honor yet: being immortalized as a Pop! figure! The host of the Emmy- and Writers Guild Award-winning weekly news-oriented comedy series Last Week Tonight with John Oliver will be the first HBO star to become a Funko Pop! figure outside of the popular line of Game of Thrones and True Blood figures.
Whether he’s generating discourse throughout the nation on net neutrality, LGBT discrimination, or even founding his own church, John Oliver is a constant source of intelligent satire and call for change!
Make sure to add the very first John Oliver figure to your collection this February with Pop! TV: Last Week Tonight!
I was watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and while he was discussing the militarization of police he showed a controversial training video for the Doraville, Georgia SWAT team. Oliver highlighted the video used heavy metal music, and started off with the Punisher logo…. what!?
Well I did some digging, and found out, according to this CBS 46 Atlanta news report, the video was modified adding heavy metal music and the logo by an individual…. which the Doraville police then posted on their Facebook page.
Tip for the police, when looking for comic characters to emulate, the Punisher is not one of them, and linking to videos like this isn’t the best of ideas. There’s that whole vigilante killing thing you’re supposed to be opposed to.
