The Daily Show sent Jason Jones over to Sochi to cover the Olympic Games, and it was money well-spent. His final report alone should make the powers-that-be at Comedy Central sign off on even the most ludicrous of expense reports.
Jones attempted to get to the bottom of the country’s ability to produce batshit video after batshit video. As you’d expect, his reporting required face time with some … interesting human beings.
The answer lies in a steadfast commitment to not being a baby about things. It seems Russians take this whole YOLO thing more seriously than any other country on the planet.
Knowing this, it’s safe to assume this guy would be pretty popular over there.
