GQ put die-hard soccer fan and notable FIFA slide tackler John Oliver to the test by giving the Last Week Tonight host a list of truly bizarre soccer players names and challenging him to pick out the fake ones. It was not an easy task, because soccer player names are, as you know, insane.
Juvenile monikers like Fabian Assmann and Dick Tickler have Oliver off balance throughout the segment, but the most interesting name on the list has to be Bongo Christ. If that isn’t a perfect pseudonym for Matthew McConaughey — especially after his recent career resurrection — I don’t know what is. Long live the McConaissance. Long live Bongo Christ.
