John Oliver offers Russel Crowe's jockstrap to Anchorage Blockbuster

The premium-TV talk show purchased additional killer (or "pointless", in Oliver's words) Crowe memorabilia from the actor's divorce auction - and the HBO host wants to donate it all to the last remaining Blockbuster Video store in Anchorage, Alaska. Oliver noted that of the four independently-owned Blockbuster stores left in America, three are located in Alaska. The pricetag, however, was.

All the Anchorage Blockbuster has to do is contact Last Week Tonight within 48 hours to claim the items! The jockstrap used in the boxing film was reportedly worth a range from $500 to $600, according to broker Sotheby's who would be holding Crowe's auction.

Oliver then revealed that he'd actually bought a bunch of the memorabilia, including Crowe and Denzel Washington's chairs from the set of "American Gangster" and the vest Crowe wore in the film "Les Miserables". " It was 4 AM, and you know what happens when you start online shopping late at night", Oliver explained of the binge bidding.

Years after the video rental franchise that once boasted more than 6,000 stores across the US shuttered majority, Blockbuster has reportedly been able to stay open in Alaska due to spottier internet service there, making it harder to stream movies on services like Netflix.

"To the manager of the only remaining Blockbuster in Alaska, all of this shit is yours", Oliver said after giving viewers a guided tour of the Crowe items.
