John Oliver may be on hiatus from his namesake HBO series, but he’s not too busy to share his newest discovery with the Last Week Tonight audience. In a web exclusive for his comedy series, Oliver sung the praises of John Dillermand, a Danish children’s show that launched in January. As Oliver describes it, the animated series is all “about a claymation Super Mario who’s dressed for a ski vacation and a 1920s beach party at the same time — and who, much more importantly, has a massive, stripey snake dick.”
As HuffPost reports, Oliver devoted a full six-minute video to the quirky show, gleefully explaining why we should all be just as obsessed with John Dillermand as he is.
“The ‘Diller’ in ‘Dillermand’ is Danish slang for ‘penis,’ meaning that his name in English is basically ‘John Penisman,’ which is a perfect name for a man with a magical dong,” Oliver said. “It would actually be a great nickname for my own penis if I hadn’t already nicknamed it Hugh Grant because it’s British, aging and I’ve been told it can be unpleasant to work with.”
Oliver went on to call for more “imaginative” children’s shows like John Dillermand in the U.S. “Think about it. What do we have?” he asked, slamming Paw Patrol, Veggie Tales, Curious George and Arthur. “None of these characters can hold a candle to John Dillemand because I guarantee none of them have ever saved a group of drowning children by using the centrifugal force of their cartoonishly long schlong.”
The late night host closed out his segment by explaining why John Dillermand “resonated so much with me,” revealing that he also has a “20-foot-long, animated hose dong” as the cartoon appendage popped up onscreen beside him. To see the bizarre moment for yourself, just fast-forward to the 5:40 minute mark in the clip above.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver returns July 25. Watch the full John Dillermand segment in the video above.
