Last Week Tonight host John Oliver took aim at Avengers star Jeremy Renner while defending the United States Postal Service.
In a recent segment looking at the effects of modern technology on the USPS, John Oliver saw a chance to take shots at Avengers star Jeremy Renner’s musical efforts. The host was pointing out the number of ways that the Postal Service has been affected by society’s shift to email and digital communication over the years. Oliver mentioned that the 2006 Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act severely damaged the USPS after putting a price-cap on first class mail and even requiring it to prepay its employees health benefits.
The host expressed the importance of physical mail by taking aim at Avengers star Jeremy Renner’s 2020 album The Medicine. Oliver explained that although we can buy medicine online, we can’t download it before strongly advising viewers not to download Renner’s album.
“While you might be able to buy medicine online, you can’t actually download medicine from the internet. To clarify, you can download ‘The Medicine,’ Jeremy Renner’s collection of music-like noises, from the internet. But, and this is very important, you shouldn’t do that.”
