WATCH: John Oliver reveals his wildest ideas that he desperately wants to see become a reality
There was no Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on Sunday, but Oliver nonetheless decided to put out some web-exclusive content in which he talked about some things that he desperately wanted to see become things… if that makes any sense.
Basically, Oliver has gotten tired of asking questions such as, “Why is daylight savings time still a thing?” and wanted to instead ask why some incredibly cool ideas had not yet become popular. Among the highlights were an all-dog version of the Blue Man Group, a way to wink without looking like you’re proposing a threesome, and a biodegradable treadmill that starts to break down after a month of disuse.
But the thing that Oliver wanted more than anything else to become a thing were bread pants.
“In my experience, if you’re wearing sweatpants, you’re probably concurrently eating something messy like a big plate of nachos, or a fistful of humus,” he said. “Now with bread pants, if you spill, you don’t wash the pants. You simply tear a piece off the leg and you eat that too — how are those not a thing?”
