We’d consider being made fun of by John Oliver on Last Week Tonight an honour, but of course, there are people who don’t quite appreciate the joke.
Like New Zealand’s Prime Minister and creator of the world’s most disgusting pizza, Bill English. Turns out he does not think the British comedian is that funny, what with his impression of a New Zealand accent and political party criticism.
We’re talking about Oliver’s hilarious take on the hilarious and strange lawsuit between Eminem and the NZ National Party, whom English is the leader of.
The U.S. rapper alleged the political party infringed copyright by using a track called “Eminem-esque” which sounds similar to “Lose Yourself.”
English hasn’t seen the clip, and told reporters he has no intention to, because he “isn’t very funny.”
He however added “for the sake of his audience I hope it’s funny. Some of the stuff I’ve seen he does isn’t very funny,” according to Newshub.
When pressed, English couldn’t specifically recall what Oliver moments weren’t funny.
Your move Oliver, we guess. In the meantime, we can always enjoy reliving this bizarre moment in court.
