John Oliver Fights Antarctica Tourism With Hilariously Convincing PSA

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver has one request for all the world tourists out there: PLEASE don't go to Antarctica.

Thanks to morning talk shows touting the icy continent's "free penguins and sno-cones," thousands of tourists are tarnishing Antarctica's pristine landscapes every year.

Luckily, Oliver is here with an important PSA directed at anyone who's actually thinking about stepping foot on Antarctica just so they can brag to their friends. Watch the clip from his June 22 episode above.

"Last Week Tonight" airs Sundays at 11:00 p.m. EST on HBO.
