Oliver did a segment on Monday's "Daily Show" about CNN's
"I would like to personally offer $10,000 in reward to anyone who can bring me footage of Piers Morgan falling off that Segway," Oliver said.
Unfortunately, that footage does exist. And on Piers Morgan's show Tuesday, the host aired it.
"Mock all you want, Mr. Oliver, but, my fellow Brit, your punch line did carry with it a bona fide offer, to anyone, you said, who could produce the video of me falling off a Segway, and by the way, breaking five ribs, collapsing a lung and nearly expiring from life," Morgan said before airing the video of the incident, which was property of the UK's Mail, where Morgan was a columnist at the time.
"But now it's time for you to suffer pain," Morgan said. "Ten thousand dollars worth of pain in fact. I assume the money will be delivered by the end of business day tomorrow. If not, I'll make sure that Mr. Stewart, now he's back from his lengthy movie-making sabbatical, will take it out of your measly little salary."
How will Oliver respond? The answer will surely come on Wednesday's "Daily Show."
