John Oliver Wants You To Take the No-Prank Pledge

The comedian is taking a stand against April Fools’ Day.

One of the best parts ofLast Week Tonight is that John Oliver is constantly taking a stand against things that we all think are stupid. Like Daylight Saving Time. Or the way that the NCAA treats its athletes. His latest target, in a web exclusive, is April Fools’ Day.

Watch as he makes his viewers take a No-Prank Pledge while disparaging the holiday’s utter stupidity. “Anyone excited for April Fools’ Day is probably a sociopath. Because what they’re really saying is ‘I cannot wait to hurt the people close to me.’” Well said, John.
