John Oliver revealed on Last Week Tonight that his show recently purchased wax sculptures of U.S presidents from a closed-down museum. The Hall of Presidents and First Ladies Wax Museum in Gettysburg, Pa., recently held an auction selling off its wax presidents. Celebrities like Rachel Maddow, Stephen Colbert, and Jon Stewart each bought a wax sculpture, but Oliver bought five. Oliver had a pretty good reason, saying, “Because we’re five times stupider than any other TV show, that’s f***ing why.
The Wax Warren G. Harding story
But Oliver did much more than just buy the wax presidents; he made a movie trailer using his Warren G. Harding figure. Oliver found Harding’s life story so interesting, particularly the president’s sex life, that he thought it would make a great movie. Unfortunately, nobody is lining up to make a movie about our 29th president. So Oliver gathered Academy Award nominees Anna Kendrick, Michael McKean, James Cromwell, and Laura Linney to star with wax Warren G. Harding in the hilarious trailer.
