We Finally Know Who Bought Russell Crows Jock Strap
John Oliver has revealed he is the proud owner of Russell Crowe’s jockstrap from the movie “Cinderalla Man” after a hugely successful $7,000 phone bid during the actor’s “divorce auction” that happening this month.
Oliver said on his show “Last Week Tonight” that it was “a big price to pay just to find out what Russell Crowe’s balls smelled like in 2005” – but it’s only a portion of what Last Week Tonight spent on “a bunch of pointless Russell Crowe memorabilia” in a series of bids that totaled $79,788.
This amazing act of hilarity was revealed on Sunday night’s show in a segment about a struggling Blockbuster video store in Alaska which happens to be one of the last remaining video stores in the US, which is “under serious threat” in the digital new world.
“If only there were a fun, movie-themed way for them to draw people in,” Oliver offered. He then introduced Crowe’s auction as one such opportunity for the store, before revealing his team had done the hard work by getting up at 4am in the morning in the US to call in bids.
“There has been some speculation out there that we were the ones who bought that jockstrap – and I will admit it does sound like something that we would do,” he said. “You know, buy Russell Crowe’s jockstrap and send it to one of the last remaining Blockbusters in Alaska. Even that sentence is absolutely incredible to say out loud.”
So epic and so amazing! Thank you, John Oliver!
