"There has been some speculation out there that we were the ones who bought that jockstrap, and I will admit that it does sound like something we would do", Oliver said.

During Sunday's episode of Last Week Tonight, the late night host revealed that he purchased the jockstrap Crowe wore in Cinderella Man during the A-lister's recent divorce auction.

"It was my jock strap when I won the heavyweight championship of the world as the character James J. Braddock in the film 'Cinderella Man, '" Crowe told Good Morning Britain. "You know, buy Russel Crowe's jockstrap and send it to one of the last remaining Blockbusters in Alaska".

That happened most recently when Russell Crowe held a controversial auction at Sotheby's Australia in Sydney titled "The Art of Divorce".

"The bad news is, we didn't do it", Oliver said.

"I meant to do it, everyone should do it, and I'm gonna do it again forever.' I have got to say, if Trump's intention was to descend so far into self-parody that he somehow burrowed into the Earth's crust and came out on the other side, mission fucking accomplished". "It wasn't us. We didn't buy it".

See what else Oliver bought in the clip above. 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".

As has been previously reported, Alaska is home to over 50% of the country's final Blockbuster stores. "We did though. We absolutely did", he said, moments later. All the manager there needs to do to claim this stuff is to call within 48 hours.
