We Now Know Who Actually Bought Stuff From Russell Crowe's Divorce Auction

Yep, John Oliver Just Bought The 'Cinderella Man' Jockstrap From Russell Crowe's Sydney Auction John Oliver Uses Tax Day To Show How Corporate America Is Screwing You Over

The only part of the news that was more entertaining was that Oliver said he was going to send the piece of movie history, along with a few other items of Crowe's from assorted films, to the last remaining Blockbuster Video in Alaska.

"I can think of no more ideal place for them to reside than an Alaskan Blockbuster store", Oliver told the audience. The pricetag, however, was.

Oliver, 40, had been taking a look at the last Blockbuster in Alaska before he mentioned Crowe's recent "The Art of Divorce" auction, which saw the actor sell off an array of artifacts from his career in the wake of his split from ex-wife Danielle. Before auction, the estimated value of the item had been set at $500.

The HBO show also bought Crowe's director chair from American Gangster, the vest he wore in Les Miserables, and a hood he wore in Robin Hood.

Among the items: A leather jockstrap from the 2005 movie "Cinderella Man" that Oliver purportedly paid more than $7,000 for. Yes, that really happened - and it was only the start of their late-night spending spree. Because streaming services are extra expensive in Alaska, Blockbuster still reigns there, and Oliver promised that if Alaska's remaining Blockbuster contacted the show, they'd be able to display Crowe's memorabilia there.

Oliver said he wants to give the memorabilia to one of those remaining Blockbuster stores to help them draw people into the store.
