John Oliver fulfills promise following Sepp Blatter resignation [VIDEO]

john-oliver-budweiser

In recent weeks, TV host and soccer fan John Oliver has pleaded with companies such as Adidas, Budweiser and McDonalds to stop supporting FIFA and FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

Oliver stated,”Budweiser, if you pull your support and help get rid of Blatter, I will put my mouth where my mouth is and I will personally drink one of your disgusting items.  I will even drink a Bud Light Lime.”

Oliver followed through on his promise on his show Sunday night.

Oliver has been a strong adversary of outgoing Blatter, and has used his show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver to voice his opinions on the 79-year-old.

The host also promised to wear Adidas’ Wings 3.0 gold shoes and take a bite from every item on the McDonald’s Dollar Menu if the companies ended ties with FIFA.=

Although Blatter was reelected to a fifth term as FIFA’s president, Blatter announced he was stepping down from his post once a successor has been found.  While it is not yet clear whether the massive companies had a direct influence on Blatter resigning, Oliver fulfilled his promises during Sunday’s show.

The funny scene ends with Oliver declaring, “Bud Light Lime may taste like your tongue is angry with you, but after seeing Sepp Blatter leaving, to me, it tastes… delicious.”
