The Battle Between Comedian John Oliver and FIFA’s Jack Warner Just Erupted

John Oliver and Jack Warner have been putting on quite the show lately. Warner, you'll recall, is the former CONCACAF head and FIFA executive vice-president who is accused of taking a $10 million bribe, and has claimed he has documents that will make the s***hammer come down on FIFA's head. Warner bragged about these documents on Trinidad and Tobagan TV, so John Oliver bought airtime on the same TV station to ask Warner to release the documents.

Sepp Blatter Might Not Actually Resign

According to one of Sepp Blatter's former aids, the outgoing FIFA president might also be the incoming FIFA president.

John Oliver Asks Jack Warner To Release Documents In Hilarious Commercial And Jack Warner Responds

John Oliver took out about four minutes of air-time in Trinidad & Tobago to try to coerce Jack Warner, a native of the islands and former FIFA executive, to turn over incriminating documents to the feds. Warner, who has served as a FIFA Vice President and head of CONCACAF, had bought a similar slice of airtime on the same station to threaten the release of the documents. 

Basically, Oliver made a TV commercial to the effect of, "Do it! Do it!"
