John Oliver's Latest Takedown FIFA

By JOHN DORN

Sepp Blatter's notorious reign as FIFA president should finally come to an end soon, with news breaking Monday that the federation will elect a new leader on Feb. 26, 2016. But before he goes, there's still time to get a few jokes in.

During a FIFA news conference Monday, comedian Simon Brodkin -- better known as Lee Nelson -- stepped onto the stage to throw fake money at Blatter, telling the crowd that it was for a North Korea World Cup bid. Even one of the security members couldn't help but let out a laugh.




The prank is obviously in reference to the corruption scandal shadowing over the league, and allegations that nations have gained preferential treatment by bribing FIFA officials -- most notably with the 2022 World Cup bid going to Qatar over the United States, Japan, South Korea and Australia.

Soon -- hopefully, Blatter will be a mere memory in FIFA's history. But the federation has a lot of damage control to take care of in the meantime.
