“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” made a doomsday video starring President Bartlet Martin Sheen. Why, you may ask?

Well, it turns out that CNN (more specifically Ted Turner) has a doomsday video that Turner produced in the early days of the news network that is literally cataloged: “Hold for release til end of the world confirmed.”

But it’s utterly boring, and John Oliver will not stand for that. So here is “Last Week Tonight’s” contribution to the end of the world, celebrating the “greatest things about humanity’s time on earth,” like peanut butter, water slides, the Beatles and “that YouTube video of Kelsey Grammer falling off a stage.”

Gotta say, if this is what we all watch during our collective final three minutes on Earth … that’s not too bad.
