Remember the salmon cannon? That supremely overenthusiastic answer to the problem of fish migration being blocked by dams? Well, John Oliver found that single use to be lacking something more... Pythonesque.


This video is hilarious in a way that'll make you feel kind of bad for loving it. It was amusing when Jon Stewart got beaned, but as Oliver keeps loading the fish, it gets funnier and funnier. We promise, the sight of a bunch of famous people get hit in the face with stuffed salmon is something you didn't know you needed. It's a modern Internet sensation crossed with Monty Python's "Fish Slapping Dance."

In other news, this was Oliver's last episode of the season. We'll have to wait until 2015 to get this kind of high-quality video again.
