The relationship between “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver and Adam Driver had plenty of time to grow before the host and his writing team thanked the actor during their Emmys speech. Driver appeared to joke about Oliver’s suggestions and jokes during the Season 7 finale.
“What the f*ck are you doing?” Driver seemingly angrily questioned after he supposedly called into the show. “This bit. This bit. This thing that you’ve been doing that’s either sexual or violent. … When you first started doing it, it was easy for me to shrug it off. But then it kept going on and on,” He complained. “What’s wrong with you? You realize we’re strangers, right? I don’t know you. And now random people on the internet ‘stan’ us, claiming that you ‘thirsting’ over me is a ‘mood.’ I’m sick of people stopping me on the street and asking me if I’m going to punch a hole in you like a ‘Marriage Story’ wall!”
The show’s crew invited him and he was a good sport about it. We can all’stan’ this fun-filled relationship, regardless of whether the two were close at first.
