John Oliver Crashes Game of Thrones, Other HBO Programs to Promote New Season

The fourth season for HBO’s Last Week Tonight begins on February 12th. And if the new promo to hype up its return is any indication, the show’s sharp wit will be intact.

The clip starts with a shot of the iconic Iron Throne, hyping up the return of HBO’s biggest Sunday night show, with the obvious inference being that it was about Game of Thrones. It’s at that time John Oliver sheepishly emerges from behind the large chair with the realization that the narrator wasn’t talking about his Sunday program.

We get the same situation with Oliver crashing another HBO comedy beginning its fourth season — Silicon Valley. In this instance, we’re treated to a funny exchange between Oliver and Silicon Valley star Kumail Najiani.

One last time, we are presented with Oliver walking while the narrator discussed the “long-awaited return of the HBO show everyone’s waiting for.” This time around, Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David pops up to point out that narrator is talking about his program coming back after years off.

You really should watch the whole thing above, via HBO.
