John Oliver ridiculed Norwegian 7-Eleven advertising
Wednesday 4 July 2018
7-Eleven raised a lot of attention last week when they brought a condom advertisement aimed at tourists in Norway.
The kiosk chain makes a big point because many Norwegians have sexually transmitted chlamydia. They call Norway “land of chlamydia” or the Klamydia country, and encourage tourists to “protect themselves from the local” by purchasing condoms at 7-Eleven.
It has caught the attention of one of the world’s leading TV comedians, British John Oliver.
He gave the advertisement a special feature in his very popular weekly humor talk show, Last Week Tonight, at American HBO.
The advertisement is shown to great laughter from the audience in the hall.
– Holy shit, Oliver exclaims after the advertisement, stating that 7-Eleven can be sued by the cities of Las Vegas and Tampa, as well as the “wave pool at all water parks” for the use of the name “Land of Chlamydia.”
