A group of geckos shot into space by Russia to monitor their sex habits in zero gravity have died.
In July, Oliver ran a segment on his show demanding that the Russians do everything in their power to retrieve the capsule full of mating geckos.
With the hashtag #GoGetThoseGeckos, Oliver told his audience, with the help of multiple celebrity cameos, to write the Russian government on its official website and demand the geckos be returned to Earth safely. The hashtag began trending worldwide shortly after the show aired.
It is unclear how the HBO series star will react, but if it is anything like his initial reporting of the geckos plight, it should be pretty emotional and hilarious.
