Comedian John Oliver is now the proud owner of the leather jockstrap worn by Russell Crowe during the filming of his 2005 boxing drama, Cinderella Man.

"I mean, I'm not sure I want a Russell Crowe jockstrap".

A few weeks ago on his show, Oliver had noted the actor was about to hold an The Art of Divorce auction to celebrate the end of his marriage, putting up for bidding various artifacts from his movie career.

Of the four remaining Blockbuster stores, three are in Alaska.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Has Classic '80s LCD Platformers As Mini-Games
It has been a very long time since a numbered Kingdom Hearts game has released, with the last one being 2006's Kingdom Hearts 2 . In the video we can see he Barnyard Battle , The Karnival Kid , Giantland , and Musical Farmer .

Watch the full 16-minutes segment below, but the main takeaway is pretty simple: "We just had a huge chance to reform our tax code and we absolutely blew it", Oliver said.

"And I really hope the Internet is good enough up there for you to see this in time", he added, "because if we do not hear from you in the next two days, I know a transportation museum in Scranton, Pa".

Oliver announced his second-hand haul in the latest episode of his talk show, and in true Last Week Tonight style, he wasn't quite done there.

In addition to the jockstrap from Cinderella Man, the show also bought a robe and shorts from the same film. He also successfully bid on Crowe's vest from "Les Mierables", his hood from "Robin Hood", and the set chairs used by Crowe and Denzel Washington in "American Gangster".

The two countries are separated by the 2,400-kilometer (1,500-mile) Durand Line, which was drawn by British rulers in 1896. Afghanistan does not recognize it as an worldwide border and has objected to new fortifications being built by Pakistan.

However, these items may not be with Oliver for long.

"To the manager at the only remaining Blockbuster in Anchorage, Alaska, all of this s-- is yours", Oliver said. "Just call us in the next 48 hours and we will send it to you".

As of this filing on Monday morning, it is not clear if the store has been in touch with Oliver.
