John Oliver Unveils New Flag For New Zealand After That Dildo Incident

When New Zealand politician Steven Joyce was hit in the face with a flying dildo, he knew it was only a matter of time before John Oliver ripped him to shreds.

Ten days later and Oliver has not disappointed, taking aim at the 52-year-old and his country, during his show 'Last Week Tonight'.

Jumping on the news that the Zealanders were struggling to decide on a new national flag, Oliver hurried to design a new one.

In a double take down of Joyce and the set for Peter Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' films, the comedian unveiled the emblem that the country has been waiting for.

"If you want an image that sums up everything great about New Zealand, this is the flag right here. What Olympic team would not be proud to march beneath that?", Oliver asked.

John Oliver unveils his New Zealand flag

The new flag, featuring Joyce's face being hit with the sexual stimulant, did not end at the butt of Oliver's joke.

Clarifying the message, the 38-year-old sent a version of his flag to film director Peter Jackson.

"We didn't just mock that up New Zealand, we got one made and sent it to your country and gave it to one of your greatest sons Peter Jackson, and if you don't believe me watch this," said Oliver.

What happened next was nothing short of magical.

Oliver also took a moment to savor the dildo-slapping incident: "While the slow motion footage is unnaturally funny, it's not as funny as the natural sound of it bouncing off his nose."

Take a listen:

"My favourite part of that is his unruffled surprise at being hit in the face with a dildo, as if that happens to him all of the time, or at the very least he anticipated it would happen someday.

"And to New Zealand's credit the woman who threw that toy was not charged with anything.

"Also New Zealand's media has taken to calling Steven Joyce 'Dildo Baggins' a play on words which frankly should be awarded a Nobel prize for literature," Oliver said.

Well played, New Zealand.
