Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Infrastructure (HBO)

Given Thursday’s collapse of a bridge on interstate 35 in Texas I thought it timely to share this hilarious segment from the HBO show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, on the state of infrastructure in the United States. The segment includes an awesome mock film trailer that, unfortunately, cannot be embedded here on it’s own. Watch it towards the end of the video embedded above or see it as a standalone clip on Youtube.
