John Oliver is determined to save Blockbuster — by using Russell Crowe memorabilia!

During Sunday's episode of Last Week Tonight, the late night host revealed that he purchased the jockstrap Crowe wore in Cinderella Man during the A-lister's recent divorce auction. While rumors had claimed that the HBO star had purchased some items from the sale, Oliver finally confirmed the news for himself and revealed why he felt the need to buy the strap that was on Russell's jock.

After shelling out $7,000 for the undergarment, Mr. Oliver decided he'd send the film item to one of the last remaining Blockbuster Video stores in Alaska. He also plans to send shorts and robe from the '05 boxing film, a hood from Robin Hood, and a vest from Les Miserables.

All the Anchorage Blockbuster has to do is contact Last Week Tonight within 48 hours to claim the items! AH-Mazing.

In case you hadn't heard, you can get your hands on the strap that was on Russell Crowe's jock — if you have the coin!

After his divorce with Danielle Spencer, the L.A. Confidential star found catharsis in capitalism by selling off dozens of his prized possessions in a massive auction.

In a statement released by Sotheby's Australia, he explained:

"Divorce has its way of making you really examine the things that are essential in life — and the things that are not. Through the process I had a look around and realized I had a lot of stuff. Career stuff, stuff I've collected, and stuff in general. Boxes and boxes of stuff…so in the spirit of moving forward into fresh air, here's a portion of that collection of stuff."

Lots in the Sotheby's auction, titled The Art Of Divorce, include Russell's jockstrap from Cinderella Man, his sword from Gladiator, and his ridiculous purple suit from Virtuosity.

In addition to his own movie memorabilia, there's a healthy amount of art, guitars, vehicles, and more — but the oddest thing may be a Mosasaur skull he got from Leonardo DiCaprio!

You can see the full catalog HERE — but hurry up!

The auction begins April 7 (Russell's bday and wedding anniversary) at 6 p.m. local time in Sydney — that's 4 a.m. EST! And if you're going to bid by phone or internet you have to register by 11 p.m. EST!

But Steve Irwin was actually pretty darn prolific, and on Sunday his 19-year-old daughter posted a video she'd only just seen.

In an interview, the late "Crocodile Hunter" is asked what could make him give up his career in wildlife conservation, and his answer is his children.
