John Oliver on Cover Oregon's "Violently Adorable" Ads... Yeah, We Deserve This.

Posted by Alison Hallett on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 9:44 AM

Cover Oregon was officially scrapped on Friday, so in the first episode of his new show Last Week Tonight John Oliver cleverly rewrote one of the ads for us. I don't like it when people make fun of Laura Gibson—though I have to imagine being spoofed by Lisa Loeb is kind of professionally hilarious—but I can't really argue with the rest of that. (In a Facebook post, Gibson jokingly took full credit for the collapse of Cover Oregon, then noted that Oliver's people gave her "very sweet" advance notice about the spot. The real culprit, of course, is Oracle, which utterly failed to deliver a functional health exchange.)
