      Why do we allow companies to poison our kids? Anyone?

    2. Jon McCaughey

      "I'm John Oliver. This has been LVlabel." 🤣🤣🤣

    3. 黄以騫

      Honestly, I'm sick and tired of John Oliver's frivolous humour I decided to don't give him a damn, and so this is the last episode I've ever watched.

      Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddie Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddie Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

      I feel like dogshit when I eat lots of cereal. It's tasty, great texture, but it's horrible food.

    6. Bruce Baker

      Cereal for Goths: Emos Something FMLakes Blackened White (the black flakes make the milk turn gray) Blahberry Bites Life Bites (This is as crunchy as it gets. It just gets soggier and soggier from here on out.)

    7. Bruce Baker

      McDonalds. McBurger-O's? Disney. Never mind the flavour. It's sugary and has Disney princesses on the box. Sales: a buzillion. Oh jeez. 6 Princesses. Six cereals. The boxes form and fold and tab-A into Brekkie Palaces...

    8. John Parisi

      Cheerios come, for a short time, in heart shapes. They are adorable and fun to eat.

    9. Ian Ó Ceallaigh

      All this and not a mention of Kellogg's abandoning their Anti-Masturbation message??

    10. Tyler Bailey

      Fruit Loops Marshmallows. Mic Drop.

    11. Capsdkk

      100% sure he's smoking weed!.. Cereal, The Smokers Choice.

    12. Official Nova Blast

      2:16 basically shaq dates tony the tiger and Tony Fucks Shaq in a nutshell, fanfict I'm ok with knowing how annoying those getting Shaq betting app adds are

    13. trashpanda

      I have been mixing my own cereal from other cereals for years. Oliver is right on the money

    14. Ayesha


    15. Lol Orlando

      Candy for breakfast wasn’t legal in my house. My step mother once bought the Oreo cereal as a threat to anyone in the house that would choose such an unhealthy cereal for breakfast instead of a healthy one. Everyone was aware that eating that cereal was an death sentence and not because of the sugar. The box sat on the shelf for YEARS while no one touched it. Fear of a step mother is a powerful thing.

    16. Lol Orlando


    17. Alvin Wong

      I love John Oliver.... but your trashing my cereal... I love my human scabs of powdered sugars ;P

    18. Conor Poustie

      X and O with a little stick so we know shitty games before.Work

    19. spaceduck gaming

      yoooo imagine being one of the 6k people who didnt like this .

      Shaquille: King of the junk food commercials and fat camp visits.

    21. Jane Recluse

      Two words: Little Debbie

    22. Cetti

      Even though we all know cereal isn't the healthiest food, BIG THANKS, John for not telling us that. Love mixing Cap'n Crunch, Rice Krispies and Chereos together with banana and cold, cold, cold milk!😎

    23. Holly Antal

      funny, i'm suddenly inspired to create cereal commercials with this new concept I'm thinking of.

    24. Nathan Sebastian


    25. Mango Supreme

      WTF ever happened to Cookie Crisp, the be-all end-all of nothing you need and everything you want?

    26. Ken Willen

      Ngl, that cereal where the pieces are little guys with marshmallow dogs sounds freaking amazing

    27. Caitlin Faulkner

      Ok but Dunkin’s Caramel macchiato cereal is bomb

    28. Tink-R-Toys' Will I Am Shark Wheels and Ham

      Life Cereal 🥣 is my all time favorite

    29. Loren Sims

      Cap'n Crunch was great just the way it was. Who the hell wanted Crunch Berries? But they were great! And then Crunch Berries cereal without ANY Cap'n Crunch?! Sacrilege! But it was great! Lucky Charms added new marshmallow shapes ten, twenty years ago. What have you done for me lately?

    30. Ayélé Mensah

      I mean “Lil’ Vaxxes” would be very topical and the vaccine cicada would get to do something at least! I’m thinking tiny syringes and marshmallow masks…

    31. Gravy Dude

      they crushed this all those ideas were money makers. He did 10 years worth of cereal ideas in 6 minutes.

    32. Efe yüksek

      Great show eva

    33. HollyD 002

      I eat cereal only at night. Nice carbs to lull you to sleep.

    34. Nkumah Christian

      Had to down vote because the blasphemy about Frosted Flakes Thereeeeere GREAT!

    35. SeanteBrown

      YOOOO!!! John, I’m with you on 99% of topics. But you wildin talm bout Frosted Flakes like that. Put some respect on the OG cereal 🥣 sir

    36. Anastasia Delicious

      Growing up we couldn’t even ask my mom for cereal with more than 9 grams of sugar in it. Had to go to my Aunt Cathy for a lucky charms fix! She would hook me up with cotton candy too. God that woman is a saint!!!!

    37. Sean Burke

      You know that all the writers on this show were born after 1990 when your topic is about needing new cereal. That 90s nostalgia hits hard and rings true

    38. robconnect2

      Come on John, there are more important things you could be covering. You know this was just a filler. Don't tell you are getting sensored.

    39. Dakota McIntire

      Not gonna lie. A nighttime cereal, even more of a thinly veiled dessert, would be amazing. But then, I'd also love for a caramel flavored addition to the Count Chocula/Boo-Berry/Frankenberry lineup. But then, I still want them to bring Count Chocula back year round so I'm not filling the back of a freaking pickup truck with the stuff in october to last me year round. Why? Because I have access to adult money and that was a mistake nobody has seen fit to correct yet.

    40. Ronald Cammarata

      Actually, I think an insect shaped cereal would be a great idea. Actually, have several different insect shapes and make them all different flavors. (I'd have to think more about what insects get what flavors. But it's after 2 in the morning, so I don't think I can do that right now.)

    41. Chris Philippi

      Fuck you about the Marvel joke…rude

    42. Isaac Blacketer Carlson

      Sour Patch Kids cereal? That's a recent innovation that seems to be a real moonshot

    43. Scott Morgan

      Of course, cereal has a higher glycemic index than even sugar, do don't eat if you are one of the 88% of Americans who are metabolically unwell (U of N. Carolina research), or you will hasten your demise. The human body does not require carbohydrates.

    44. Joshua Blouin

      Cheerios responded saying they could not drop an F-Bomb but are donating $50,000 to No Kid Hungry and would donate $50,000 to a charity of John Oliver's choice if John tweets, "Family make good go round." Fucking savage. They quadrupled his offer.

    45. Zach Roz

      Would a Mr. Nutter Butter cereal be peanut butter crunch with almond slices?

    46. The Cereal Fix

      Try mixing your cereal--opens up so many great combinations! (Wasn't expecting the language from John Oliver because I've only seen him on TV and the cute video with Cookie Monster.)

    47. Jimmy Miller

      I am a cereal scientist and I approve this message.

    48. Cameron Crowley

      Finally a topic the people can give a shit about.

    49. Moon Cabbage

      I like wheat puffs

      1. Moon Cabbage

        And bran

    50. andriod 16

      Cereal are chemical/sugar/hormon shit...stop being lazy and cook somthing.

    51. Earthlings United

      Bowl of muesli never looked so tragic.

    52. M T

      Did nobody show John "Luci-o's" based off the Overwatch character?

    53. Adam Rodaway

      It’s time to bring back Filboid Studge.

    54. Aaron Reece

      I works but the shit out of Chiijohn cereal!

    55. Sam Leduc

      Mr nutter butter nutting better cereal

    56. C M

      I Love Crunch Berries!

    57. Stuff&Things

      I like a boiled egg myself...

    58. Michael Sperry

      You grew up in UK - we had 2 cereals. Such a fake American.

    59. Mohamed Chizari

      John Oliver for president.

    60. Golden Roses

      fucking genius video

    61. Madison Grey

      The spoonful of humor/humour the whole foo-king World needed, seriously and not so seriously.

    62. Debbie Czarnota

      John Oliver is Awesome Who else agrees

    63. Prudie Fox

      Goth kids don't like chocolate? I think I'm finally understanding them.

    64. David Costantino

      Wondering how much the bet was..."I bet I can get people to watch a video about cereal"

    65. Javier Montes


    66. antproofcase

      We need more distracting cereal-induced outrage. Excellent way to start my day... And I mean with humorous outrage, not cereal 🥣.

    67. L Ruddy

      Did cheerios do it?

    68. C P

      Soooo, what about the milk of the cereal? There are only 2 kinds of people in the world, those who drink there cereal milk and those who dont ! 20 yrs.ago I came up with the idea of bottling cereal flavor milk. Think about it you could have Boo-beery milk anytime you wanted or any favorite flavor you want. All them flavors "They would be Great" Hey John Oliver the best cereal ever made,you should try(but you have to order it from the maker,not sold in stores any more that I know of.) QUISP cereal by Quaker enjoy and keep up the great work you do. -Cereal Lover

    69. ShuyinVardiz

      If the term "cereal scientist" would have been dropped within a 1km radius around me in the first twenty years of my life my future would be set

      1. mailtorajrao

        Yeah, I caught that too... it's a pity.

    70. Emma&Dad

      Clearly you guys are unaware of the old “Oatmeal Crisp” commercials

    71. Narges Mik

      🥰🥰🥰🥰love it

    72. Sloth on Caffeine

      My winning idea for a new cereal: pre-soaked cereal. It comes in a bottle. Milk mixed with the cereal. Just open the bottle, pour out the mixture, and eat that mushy, cold mixture of grain and milk that you so hate. Why mix the cereal with milk yourself and wait for it to turn into a weak porrige? Buy it pre-made. It'll be equally disgusting as the home-made version, but you'll save time by buying it ready-made.

    73. MyDearKyoKun

      Just let the national Danish TV station, resposible for John Dillermand, work their magic. I cannot guarantee you that it won't involve cereal shaped like sex organs, but it will be innovative!

      1. Sloth on Caffeine

        I can already picture the commercial: the cereal on a plate, Dillerman grabbing his you-know-what, and oozing his milk on the cereal. A couple of kids eating the cereal, looking into the camera and saying how good it tastes, both with a milk moustache on their faces.

    74. Aki Yamada

      Sailor Pig aboard a schooner headed into harbor, where they disembark to a bazar. A voice interjects the scene, "Timmy time for breakfast!" *Zoom out from am imagination bubble* Timmy puts down his book and runs to the table for a bowl of INSERT CATCHY CEREAL. "YUM! Thanks mom." *partofacompletebreakfastbswehavetosay* Fin.

    75. rogermwilcox

      Have you forgotten about _Batman vs. Superman cereal_? HAVE YOU, JOHN OLIVER?!

    76. Kenneth Palmer

      This made me cry giggle tears for days. Ruh roh! It’s gushers might be the god

    77. Bill McDonough

      Goth cereal: headstone-shaped black cereal chunks that taste like coffee (and basically make iced frap when they soak in milk).

      1. Sloth on Caffeine

        Sounds delicious. Maybe too delicious for goths. How about making the cereal out of charcoal instead.

    78. Lorenzo Mele

      what if the next Count Chocula commercial is with the John Oliver's voice? I mean, they're look-alikes

    79. Creeper Invasion

      This might be the best thing John Oliver has done on this show yet

    80. Kaye Beth

      Someone should have told him about MAGIC SPOON cereals. Look it up viewers. REALLY Tasty and HEALTHY cereals without refined sugars or artificial sweet chemicals.

    81. Nicholas Gardiner

      Does anyone remember a cereal called concept, contact oh, no no I believe it was Kellogg's Concentrate? Somewhere between wheat germ and grape nuts or bran flakes. Small maybe 10 - 12 oz box with a metal pull out spout. More of a flake like Special K but much smaller and more dense. It was around for years. Syracuse New York may have been a test Market. " Healthy" breakfast cereal yum yum. I loved it how about you?

    82. Jorarno Findon

      Oops All Marshmallows was the funniest thing I’ve heard all month

    83. Tom Williams Productions

      Chii jon should be a cerial mascot

    84. CrazyMunky

      Fighting the good fight

    85. SabiKitsune

      What about the 'Sour Patch Kids Cereal'? Jolly Rancher Cereal? Peep Cereal? Chicken & Waffle Cereal?

    86. Prayash Baniya

      great as everything

    87. Lynne Mac Lean

      Is Cheerios like 100 years old? I ate them 60 years ago.

    88. Squirrel Covers

      Cinnamon toast crunch. Golden Grahams. Fruity Pebbles.

    89. nagz-youtube

      market it for adults who just grab a handful of it every now and then

    90. Dylan Loughney

      John clearly hasn’t tried pop tarts cereal

    91. Lea Belton

      You're so silly, John

    92. coffeycake83

      Remember the got to have my pops commercials?

    93. K!NGBEATS


    94. Claudia Solomon

      Cereal Update: I have seen grocery stores cereal isles lately, the cereal flavors & gimmicks have become undeniable wacky insanity in a bowl.

    95. Keith O'Brien

      Its fun to read all the comments talking about cereal and no one acknowledging the layers of metaphor. I'm 90% sure this entire thing is about our 2 Party political system

    96. Mitja Rupnik

      Honestly, John Oliver should just watch this italian cereal commercial then, it's brilliant! lvlabel.info/contact/bn2HrYTTqqp6yWg/video.html

    97. crystine Hershberger

      Very true, Goths, Góticos y Góticas... we need our own cereal! And screw chocolate, a lot of us are vegan, vegana, vegano.

    98. Teri Zeinz

      Um... He’s on meth..., right?

    99. 伏見猿比古

      Most cereals are just candy for breakfast.

    100. Simon

      Amazing segment
