"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver wants to help those poor lizards who might be lurking out there somewhere in space.
"You might be saying, ‘Look John, why are you making such a big deal out of this? Aren’t there more important things going on in the world?’” the comedian said.
“Yes, obviously almost everything is more important than this. Ukraine is sliding into anarchy. The Gaza cease-fire is tenuous. And we’re mostly powerless to do anything about any of them. But maybe, just maybe if we could come together as a civilization, we could then build on that progress. And I think rescuing these space sex geckos might just be that thing.”
During his sarcastic rant, Oliver also threw major shade on useless hashtag campaigns.
“That’s why I’m issuing a challenge to humanity: Go get those geckos,” he continued.
“Now I know what you’re thinking – I know what you’re thinking: 'John, how is a hashtag going to rescue those geckos?' The hashtag is to raise awareness, you idiots. Be positive.”
