If you aren't a fan of New Year's Eve, you're not alone, because John Oliver is on your side. While John's show, Last Week Tonight, is currently on hiatus, they released a new video on Monday to take down the holiday. John said, "New Year's Eve is like the death of a pet. You know it's going to happen, but somehow you're never prepared for how truly awful it is." So why, exactly, is the holiday so terrible? As he puts it, New Year's Eve combines three of the worst things known to mankind, including forced interaction with strangers; being drunk, cold, and tired; and "having to stare at Ryan Seacrest for five solid minutes, waiting for him to tell you what the time is." Don't worry, though, John doesn't just point out all the negatives — he also shares a few suggestions as to how one can avoid the holiday altogether.
