This past Sunday John Oliver called out the Yankees for yet another example of douchebaggery — closing off their premium seating section, which is almost never full, to regular fans. The Yankees also urged fans who had tickets to the ultra-expensive seats not to resell them or give them away, lest other fans have to sit next to riff-raff.
So Last Week Tonight bought sets of premium tickets for three straight games this week, and sold them for 25 cents each to fans who promised to dress in stupid costumes. On Tuesday we had two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wednesday was dinosaurs, and today was sharks and unicorns. The publicity forced the Yankees to acknowledge the fans on the Yankee Stadium video board today.
Victory: Last Week Tonight. Of course the Yankees will never stop being elitist pricks, but like the Rebels in Star Wars, it’s nice to jump around in an Ewok costume and enjoy a win for the common man every once and awhile.
