One of the smallest, quietest details in this video is the photoshop of Trump holding Tiffany's present - the one with a tag on it saying Tiffany, with an arrow pointing to a picture of her. I see that small detail. And I am very happy for it.

Fantastic job John! This episode is epic! It's hard to imagine a more insightful, brave, humorous, or grand bit than the closing musical.

Love Trump but why in God's green earth would you open liable laws when there is still a wall to be built.
Robert Heinrich (7 hours ago)
I really wonder what it must be, being that one coal miner, who thought, it was a good idea to write "eat shot bob" onto a check about US$ 3.22..Just that idea, that it would blow up to a musical on times square :D that's pure madness :D
Wild Torterra (11 hours ago)
I like to think that the amount of money they spent on this musical is the same amount that Murray's lawsuit did...just to give him another middle finger.

If John manages to get more awesomely silly, he's going to kill me.
Lauren Pau (11 hours ago)
In my country, when you suie someone in court and lose the case, you're expected to pay for the other party's justice expenses. That should be a thing in the US too!
Admiral Tilt (12 hours ago)
So glad there are people like John Oliver fighting the good fight! Also on another note, Bob Murray, the guy who assassinated Martin Luther King?
Marco c (13 hours ago)
If everyone that saw this donated 20 cents then as of now (7.1M) they would have around 1.5M$ for a higher defense budget if they are suited by Bob

What about when Bob Murray sexually harrassed Peppa Pig? Punched Winston Churchill in the face?

I noticed that -John's- the lawyers language included things like "may" and he "denies the allegations". I also notice he had to dig into the thesaurus to come up with "pee pebble" and "cock rock". Gold.

HBO: John we just spent 200,000 defending your show and you want to do what? John Oliver: I want to do an elaborate choreographed song and dance number ending in Times Square with fireworks that spell out Eat Shit Bob HBO: Will another 200k cover it?

I wonder what the original coal miner who wrote "Eat shit bob" to void his check from Bob Murray thinks of seeing those words in fireworks after a victory dance by John Oliver in time square; how he was the butterfly's wing flap that caused this legal hurricane.

at least one lawyer must have to be part of the lyrics writing staff to be sure it isnt suing material i wonder if that lawyer when was in law school thought that one day he would be a song writter

If Murray is hiring lawyers to file baseless lawsuits, then there are other avenues of attack than anti-SLAPP laws. Filing a grievance against the lawyers who signed off on a baseless lawsuit might have some chance of success. That said I am not a lawyer. Doing a little further digging, and with no relevant experience it appears that (in my opinion) the lawyer representing Murray breached 3.1 of the West Virginia code of professional conduct.
MegaChickenfish (4 days ago)
It's specially ironic that, if this dumbass hadn't sued HBO, *I would've never known about the story* , the original "Eat Shit Bob" clip was from way before I learned about this Youtube channel. In classic backfiring effect, trying to silence the mockery has doubled down on the amount of mockery. Eat shit, Bob.

"This is a tragedy" -Man talking about being badmouthed by a comedian, notably *not* referring to the deaths of 9 coal miners due to his complete disregard for the safety of his workers.
Werner Hamilton (9 hours ago)
Oh and I forgot.... that same rich SOB that has everything done for him, whom our tax dollars continue to enrich, is responsible for thousands of deaths in Puerto Rico and among the Kurds. And yet he whines endlessly about "mean" things said about him! .... This is the man that evangelical Christians have blessed, thereby abandoning any claims of moral superiority they once claimed.
Werner Hamilton (9 hours ago)
Indeed! His complaint ranks right up there with the rich guy occupying the Oval Office (who lost the popular vote by a wide margin, but still got the presidency thanks to the injustice of the electoral college), who despite all of his undeserved privileges, whines about every exposure of him. That fat bastard has money and power and whines like a little toddler about being impeached for the "perfect phonecalll". And everyone knows he'll still be president after the jury (mostly Republicans) which is colluding and even taking direction from that criminal, fails to declare him guilty.

We went to court Against the world's worst sport And learned important lessons on the way We spoke with perfect candor And got accused of slander 'Cause Bob Murray wants to make us pay So even though he'll threaten Legal armageddon We have just one tiny thing to say: Bob Murray can go fuck himself today! Ladies and gentlemen, to help me better respond to Bob Murray's complete bullshit, please welcome to the show The Suck My Balls, Bob Dancers! Murray, Murray, Murray, Murray Hey, Bob! Watch this! He went to the Louvre and spit in Mona Lisa's face Filled a rocket with puppies and he shot it into space He bludgeoned Nancy Kerrigan and watched her cry for fun (Why?) He murdered Archduke Ferdinand and started World War One! That's right, if we discuss Bob Murray in a way no reasonable person could construe as factual, we can say whatever the fuck we like! So come on everyone, let's head to the streets! Ahhh Murray, Wow! He'll stroll into a stranger's home and jizz right in their Wheaties He watches “Steel Magnolias” and roots for diabetes He wrote the Macarena And he dots his I's with hearts And even worse, he likes to blame Malala for his farts! Hey! What's the big idea? We're using protected speech to tell Bob Murray to eat shit! Bob Murray?! Is that the guy who dipped his balls in my hot dog water? That's exactly who I'm talking about! Can I bring my cart? It's not ideal It'll be fine if I leave it here, right? I DON'T KNOW! Murray, Murray He doesn't like Tom Hanks He cut off Van Gogh's ear Told Hitler to quit painting and to find a new career He masturbates to Schindler's List Old Yeller makes him hard He was Cosby's drug supplier Jeffrey Epstein's prison guard! Stop! Everybody, please! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! John, as HBO's legal counsel, please stop. I have something very important to say One day at the M&M Store Bob Murray walked through the door He wasn't wearing pants that day His dick and balls on full display (Full display!) He grabbed M&M's from a bowl And crammed them up his (Anal Hole!) He spread his buttcheeks far and wide He told the tourists to look inside! (Look inside?) He said "My rectum's full of treats! Reach in there and grab some sweets!" (Grab some sweets!) These are all real things Bob Murray did! See you in court, fuckface! Look! It's Mr. Nutterbutter! We're singing about Bob Murray! I believe you've heard of him? You mean the Zodiac Killer? That's the one! Well, my friends and I have a little something to say about him! Bob Bob Murray Is A furry Putting aside our personal quarrel The man fucks Squirrels! The man fucks squirrels! Eat Shit, Bob Eat Shit, Bob Hey! I know where we should go! Ooooh, Aaaah Murray, Murray Eat shit, Bob and... Hey, Bob! Is this is as bad as you feared? It doesn't count as slander! 'Cause it's way too weird We made up these anecdotes They're silly and insane We could go on and on and on And on and on and on and on But we will stop this song Who knows, we may have fried your brains SO EAT! SHIT! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOB! YOW!

Bob: Now that we've massively inconvenienced you, bled you of $200,000 in legal fees, raised the cost of your legal insurance... you have learned your lesson, and we will let this go. John/HBO: Let this go?! This isn't even our final form! SUMMON THE DANCERS!
