John Oliver set the season finale of Last Week Tonight to end the season with a bang. The finale included a surprise visit via FaceTime from Adam Driver who has become a frequent subject of John Oliverisms.
Oliver explained the bit to his audience again about the long-running bit where Oliver expresses his thirst over the Star Wars and Marriage Story star. “I spent the whole year demanding that Adam Driver demolish me,” said Oliver. He then went on to make an additional request of the actor for a larynx-crushing before Driver called in via FaceTime to discuss the bit and the results of Oliver’s thirst mission.
Driver raised the question: “What the fuck are you doing? This bit, this bit. This thing you’ve been doing that’s either sexual or violent. This strange, strange bit that for some reason you’ve pulled me into. What is it?”
It was further explained by Driver that he was originally able to “shrug it off”, but since Oliver insisted on continuing the bit it was virtually impossible for him to ignore. Driver then recalled a few exampled of what Oliver said he wanted Driver to do, such as collapse on his chest, tie his fingers in a square knot, step on his throat, shatter his knees and pull his heart out through his ears.
Driver followed by asking “What’s wrong with you? You realize we’re strangers, right?”
