Video: John Oliver created a farewell video for RadioShack

It may be slightly more obscene than the company would have liked, but it gets the message across.

But John Oliver took us all to task for treating the demise of the 94-year-old company so flippantly, and used his "Last Week Tonight" broadcast to come up with a very fitting sendoff for them. Did you know RadioShack had been around for 94 years?
