Why did John Oliver buy Russell Crowe's

He also plans to send shorts and a robe Crowe wore in 2005 boxing film Cinderella Man, a well as a hood from Robin Hood, and a vest the Oscar victor donned for Les Miserables.

Fancy a jockstrap worn by Russell Crowe?

In total, Crowe's divorce auction earned him more $3.7 million. The jockstrap used in the boxing film was reportedly worth a range from $500 to $600, according to broker Sotheby's who would be holding Crowe's auction. Well, it turns out the answer is John Oliver.

John Oliver revealed on Sunday that it was his Last Week Tonight show that purchased Russell Crowe's Cinderella Man jockstrap.

"I will admit, it does sound like something that we would do", Oliver said Sunday.

Kevin Daymude is the general manager of the one of the last remaining Blockbuster Videos in the United States - and he believes something great is about to happen to his store.

In addition to the jockstrap from Cinderella Man, the show also bought a robe and shorts from the same film.

Along with the leather jockstrap, the funnyman, 40, picked up a number of other movie artefacts, including clothing from Robin Hood and Les Miserables.

Most of the DVD/video rental chain store have closed down, but the Anchorage store is now independently-owned - and Oliver said that he wanted the items to be a "fun, movie-themed way to draw people in", like Planet Hollywood.

"If we do not hear from you in the next two days, I know a transportation museum in Scranton, Pennsylvania that could make room for a new exhibit", Oliver said. The store is scheduled to open at 10 a.m. Monday.
