John Oliver Reveals The Time He Saw The Entire Liverpool Team Naked

‘Don’t meet your heroes’ is how the saying goes. ‘Don’t meet your heroes if they’re completely naked’ is how it really should read.
 
Or at least that's according to John Oliver, after HBO’s Last Week Tonight star sat down with Seth Myers and told a funny anecdote about meeting his sporting idols Liverpool Football Club - a tale which swiftly descended into embarrassment involving a steamy locker room and the wrong kind of waving.
 
The encounter took place when the club played a pre-season fixture in the US last year, and a representative of Liverpool had asked Brit Oliver if he wanted to meet the players – to which the uber fan (his hero growing up was Ian Rush) happily agreed, only to find an empty, steam-clad locker room when he walked in…
 
You can guess the next part of the encounter that left his face as red as his shirt, but we’ll let Oliver tell you of his deeply intimate relationship with the football team in the video below (skip to 2.23).
 
We imagine he's seen enough tackles for a lifetime.
