The stylish remix features special effects, a python, and the Harry Potter theme done Bruno Mars-style. Yes, all of this, plus a band called Tom and the Riddles. The video, uploaded March 23, has been viewed 4.9 million times.
In his newest episode on Last Week Tonight, watched 2 million times, John Oliver explains how a simple traffic ticket can cause your life to spiral out of control. People who can’t afford to pay their fine immediately often have their licence suspended. And this makes it tough for them to get to work, hurting their ability to earn money towards paying the fine. Those who can’t afford it can sometimes sign up for a payment plan, which often requires an upfront payment. Add in late fees and court costs, and this small fine could turn into thousands of dollars.
