John Oliver Unveils Stock Footage of the Supreme Court as Animals With Fake Paws on ‘Last Week Tonight’

Host John Oliver unveiled stock footage of the Supreme Court of the United States as animals with fake paws on a recent episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (see previously). Television coverage of the Supreme Court is extremely dull thanks to a ban on video recording, Oliver argues. So the team at Last Week Tonight created their own stock footage of the Supreme Court as animals (mostly dogs) with fake paws so that anyone can use the audio recordings of the oral arguments from the Supreme Court to create their own videos.

Cameras aren’t allowed in the Supreme Court, so most coverage of our most important cases looks like garbage.
