John Oliver’s hilarious and spot on takedown of FIFA

To say FIFA has been a joke for some time is a complete understatement. However, when a joke of an international governing body is taken down by jokes — well, you end up with pure brilliance. That was the case on Sunday night’s This Week Tonight with John Oliver.

He manages to take down the organization in a humorous way, but also exposes fans in the United States to the corruption and death that this group has caused. Oh, and as he also states…despite it all, I can’t wait for the World Cup to start.

Such is the power of an organization that feeds fans the best soccer we could hope to see over the course of one month.
