Watch John Oliver Skewer FIFA Sponsors (but Make Them an Offer, Too)

By Published on .

In his latest takedown of FIFA, John Oliver made an offer to the embattled organization's sponsors, which include Anheuser Busch InBev, McDonald's and Adidas: If they make newly re-elected FIFA President Sepp Blatter "go away," he said on his HBO show Sunday night, he will buy their products.

Of course, he then went on to mock said products, comparing Bud Light Lime to a "puddle beneath a Long John Silver's dumpster."

"If you get rid of the Swiss demon who has ruined the sport I love, this stuff will taste like fucking champagne," he said. Here's the full monologue, from HBO's "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver." Sponsors become the focus around the 11:20 mark.
