"I meant to do it, everyone should do it, and I'm gonna do it again forever.' I have got to say, if Trump's intention was to descend so far into self-parody that he somehow burrowed into the Earth's crust and came out on the other side, mission fucking accomplished". "But if they are going to give it to us a blockbuster video in Alaska ..."
Most of the DVD/video rental chain store have closed down, but the Anchorage store is now independently-owned - and Oliver said that he wanted the items to be a "fun, movie-themed way to draw people in", like Planet Hollywood. The winnings also included the set chairs of Crowe (and, for some reason, Denzel Washington) from their time on American Gangster, as well as the vest Crowe wore in the film Les Miserables, and a hood Crowe wore in Robin Hood.
Of the four remaining Blockbuster stores, three are in Alaska. The jockstrap used in the boxing film was reportedly worth a range from $500 to $600, according to broker Sotheby's who would be holding Crowe's auction. After introducing the segment with a nostalgia-fueled look back at Blockbuster, during which the show sourced KTUU's reporting, Oliver said he hopes to send the Crowe memorabilia to the Blockboster on Debarr Road. "Just call us in the next 48 hours and we will send this to you". Crowe said he made $3.7 million from over 200 items, including furniture, guitars and movie souvenirs - but the jockstrap may have gotten the most attention.
After airing a clip showing a telephone bidder paying a whopping $7,000 for Crowe's jockstrap, Oliver then insisted, "The bad news is we didn't do it". "I put it in the collection as a piece of whimsy and a bit of a gag".
