Remember When John Oliver Called Out FIFA For Being Corrupt One Year Ago?

The Department of Justice dropping the proverbial hammer on FIFA isn’t a huge surprise to anyone who has followed the organization over the last few years. In light of today’s news, however, let’s back up a second to June 8, 2014 — pretty damn close to a year ago. With the World Cup about to start in Brazil, John Oliver went IN on FIFA’s corruption on his HBO show, Last Week Tonight.

Today, those words are more true than ever. Watch it above. Then bask in the sweet, poetic glory of justice finally being served.
