Last Week Tonight was on hiatus due to the Fourth of July, but that didn't stop John Oliver from reporting the biggest U.S. news story of the weekend: Fireworks. Although it would, of course, be physically impossible for Oliver to have attended every fireworks show in the U.S. this weekend, he covered them all anyway.

TL;DR: There was a blue one, and a white one. Then a red one also exploded. And then all three colors at once. And one that went like [extended whistling noise] BOOM. And then at the end, they just fired a whole bunch at the same time(!!!)

I don't know how he does it, but it's like he was standing right next to me on Friday night. Uncanny.
