FIFA and this whole story is ridiculous, and as he always does, Oliver gets right down to the funny. Somehow made even easier this time by the sheer unbelievable antics.
What’s most useful for our purposes, though, is Oliver’s offer to global brands like Adidas, Anheuser-Busch, and McDonald’s, whose executives are the only ones keeping Blatter in power. Shaming them for supporting slavery hasn’t worked so far—maybe free native advertising will? We fully support this deal, and for our part we will shoehorn paeans to the virtues of tasty Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, delicious Bud Light Cheladas, and convenient Visa financial-services products into everything we publish as soon as these companies give us reason to do so.
