While those around the globe indulged on the sweet taste of Cadbury Creme Eggs over Easter weekend, host of Last Week Tonight John Oliver believes something more sinister is afoot. And like with any profound discovery these days, Oliver has taken to the Internet to include his footprint within the annals of YouTube conspiracy theory history.
Bite-sized, filled with delicious offerings, and wrapped in shiny promises, YouTube conspiracy theories are much like Cadbury Creme Eggs themselves. You decide for yourself after devouring which you feel guiltier about. However, Oliver’s uncovering of the “truth” may be the conspiracy theory video to end all conspiracy theory videos. Not only will it open your eyes, but also free you from the restraints of the “establishment”.
"Open your eyes, America! The Cadbury Creme Egg is a terrible candy that tastes like mermaid placenta covered in candle wax. And yet, and yet, every year, these eggs show up in January like newly signed gym memberships or movie theaters full of films that will never win Oscars. But why? But why does this happen? That's the question, and the reason is simple if you just follow the money."
John Oliver has followed the breadcrumbs to link the milk chocolate confectionery, originally called Fry's Creme Eggs, to the Freemasons, and yes, even Beyoncé, in order to point all fingers to the Illuminati. Does he have you convinced? Are we only mere pawns in a game played out by figures in the shadows? How can we free ourselves from strings of which we are bound?
Tell us in the comments section below if you have any ties linking Cadbury Creme Eggs to the Illuminati to help support John Oliver’s conspiracy theory. Or let us know your wildest conspiracy theory that has been hidden from the truth.
