Watch Stephen Hawking Vaporize John Oliver With Science, Death Robots (Video)
We don’t usually use interviews for the ol’ clipbait, but this one-on-one with John Oliver and Stephen Hawking is not to be missed. It’s part of a new series on Oliver’s Last Week Tonight called “Great Minds: People Who Think Good,” and it confirms what fans of The Simpsons have long known: Stephen Hawking is pretty fly for a bright guy.
Oliver introduced “The Hawk” (one of the Elders of the Internet) by noting that Hawking’s “breakthrough work in black holes and string theory is considered hugely important to anyone who pretends to understand it.” And then Hawking proceeds to type voice-synthesized circles around the comedian. It’s brilliant.
