    Props to John Oliver for learning a routine involving both speaking Portuguese and using nunchucks at the same time.
  • Stevie Valour
    To the Brazilians here, don't be embarrassed. Political fanaticism is on the rise everywhere and in general it's a really bad time for democracy rn 💔 sending hugs and strength from the Philippines
  • SukoSeiti
    Quite funny that HBO didn't allow this to be available on HBO MAX in Brazil, hilarious in fact.

    I am watching this one day after the elections. Lula won by an uncomfortable small margin. I am so worried about all of the threats and the subsequent unrest that could come out of this situation. But I am glad that you tried to speak Brazilian Portuguese and you did not hurt yourself with the nunchucks.

    Update: Bolsonaro has now been confirmed to have been beaten for re-election. I wish people of Brazil good luck.
  • RubberDucky
    I feel like John must be the only British man to have ever spoken Portuguese while swinging nunchucks around.
  • As a Brazilian, it's nice to see how people react to our country. But It's also kind of like watching Michael's Toots episode. It's a mixed feeling of all different types of embarrassment.
  • Alguém precisa legendar isso urgente em português, para mostrar aqui no Brasil pela internet, já que foi censurado na HBO.
  • The last bit was intended to be funny, but as a Brazilian I definitely couldn't stop the tears! Thanks for the support and widespread of our worries here!
  • LarsaXL
    The most surprising thing in this video is that John didn't hurt himself when he did the nunchuck segment. Well done.

    Here after Lula won! I'm not Brazilian, but it definitely feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders
  • Iván Chocrón
    Please make this video available with Portuguese subtitles so that people in Brazil can send it to each other!

    não fazia ideia de que a situação do brasil era tão difundida lá fora. às vezes eu esqueço que nosso país é enorme e importante
  • Evan Dipasquale
    Well done to the Brazilian people voting out bolsonaro.
  • Ryan Gabriel

  • Trash Kitty

  • La Maga
    Da Argentina, força irmãos. estamos com você :)
  • I love this episode, I hope that Bolsonaro lose for the sake of the Amazons, and I also hope nothing bad happen to the brazilian people.
