Dalai Lama Shares His Unique Cure For Alcoholism With John Oliver


Leave it to John Oliver to make the Dalai Lama laugh his way through an entire interview. 

On Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, Oliver traveled to Dharamsala, India, to sit down with the Dalai Lama and discuss China, the people of Tibet and his holiness’ claim that he cured Mongolia of alcoholism by turning people onto horse milk. 

“Wait, hold on,” Oliver said. “You tried to wean them off vodka by giving them horse milk?”

“Oh, yes!” the Dalai Lama said. “They follow!”

Oliver wasn’t so keen on the idea:

No thanks.

Watch the entire interview in the video above.
