John Oliver Offers $10,000 For Footage Of Piers Morgan Falling Off Segway (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On Monday night, John Oliver delivered his take on CNN's Sanjay Gupta changing his mind on pot.

Gupta recently reversed his opposition to marijuana, saying that the drug had legitimate medical applications. That admission, Oliver said on Monday, made Gupta the chief medical correspondent of the "Cannabis News Network, talking some weed with Erin Burnout and Wolf Splitzer."

Oliver continued, "I have to give CNN credit where it's due. Sanjay Gupta copped to his error, their weed special answered the most pressing questions about the legitimate uses of marijuana and they also answered the question that absolutely no one has been asking: what's Piers Morgan like when he's high?"

During an interview, Piers Morgan told Gupta that pot delivered less of a high than the Vicodin he was prescribed after falling off a Segway. Oliver joked that he would give $10,000 to anyone with footage of Morgan falling off said Segway. At least several viewers have tried to take him up on the offer, according to the comments on a Youtube clip that shows the incident. "[Thumbs] up if you are here due to the daily show," one commenter wrote.

The Daily Mail reported that Morgan broke three ribs when he fell off the Segway in 2007.
