VIDEO: John Oliver has given his own brilliant view on New Year's resolutions
"New Year's resolutions; the exact middle ground between lying to yourself and lying to other people."
You can always rely on John Oliver to offer an original approach to topical issues and he did just that again on Last Week Tonight when talking about New Year's resolutions.
We all do it to ourselves; promising a fresh start in the new year and then becoming quite defensive when questioned about the likelihood of keeping those resolutions.
Thankfully, John Oliver is on hand to prepare you for when you ultimately fail at these overly ambitious plans.
Watch as he offers an excellent alternative to the tried and tested going-to-the-gym plan.
