Update. Research from POM pomegranate is now verified and accurate. Drink to your health. It does even more than they claimed in the past. Google the research papers 2018 A.D.

“And this is true” the best line of the show.

You can taste the sarcasm.

Four years later and this is still the best bit of advertising that Pom Wonderful never could have paid for even with a billion dollars !!!!!

You know, that complaining really works. Years ago I wrote to GE and complained about the unavailability of rechargeable batteries. They sent me a box of them. I complained to Ben and Jerry's about a lack of marshmallow in their Phish Food. They sent me a bunch of coupons for free ice cream. I wrote to Kansas City Steaks about the poor quality of the meat I had received. Two whole boxes of really beautiful steaks.Nobody wrote me a note like Pom did, though.

If pomegranate tastes like sarcasm, bring it on. BTW those are two things I love for real.

I just watched this, I manage a produce department and have to deal with POM sales rep's all the time. Telling you right now if I see any of those "may contain dogs" stickers on those juices I'm fucking leaving them there. POM reps are smug annoying little fucks.

When he says "bottle," it sounds like "butthole." Lol!
felixvelariusbos (2 months ago)
I still come back to watch this; I feel like it's the one time somebody truly got one over on Oliver after all of the trolling he has wrought, and they did it in such a beautiful way. A+ POM

I am a bit disappointed. As I know Last week tonight I expected John Oliver to do something funny with the delivery, after they state you can do what ever you want with it.

Pom is owned by Stuart Resnick and his wife (shown in the first clip touting Pom juice), and he essentially owns 80% of the water in California, and uses it to grow almonds for export: in spite of taking a gallon of water to grow a single almond, it is the most lucrative cash crop that can be grown there. California doesn't have droughts, it has a water monopoly.

There actually have been many studies that show the many benefits of pomegranates, including decreasing prostate cancer. The reason they can't call their research "definitive" in regards to the effect on long-term illnesses is the fact that natural products have a much harder time with the FDA, which favors chemicals and the billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. Studies for natural products get barely any government funding, and research on animals (even though it's only 10% effective) also gets more government grants. It's not a fair system, and I wouldn't put all my trust in the FDA by any means. I'd treat POM's claims as equal as any other claim. The FDA isn't the end-all to food/supplement/drug safety....after all, tons and tons and TONS of drugs that were approved by the FDA went on to kill lots of people before being taken off the market. We should give the benefit of acknowledgement/consideration to any food/nutrient/supplement/etc that has shown some evidence of helping people/animals, even if it's minimal. The lady from POM wasn't pulling that fact out of her ass - many, many people who specialize in nutrition and health have said the same thing about pomegranate.

Just for the record: I like you and your show very much; I watch it on YouTube because I don't want to spend extra for HBO. You make me laugh and think which I find an excellent combination. I drink POM every day in a smoothie because I like the taste and it does have the usual health benefits of any fruit juice. I like their ads with the dragon and archers; very creative and entertaining. And, as a bonus, the bottles make adorable snowmen which I use to package various treats as Christmas gifts. I tend to binge watch your episodes (cheers to autoplay) and saw this one after a fan "mail" update. 1. Your looks are not repulsive. 2. The format of a deep look at one subject is great. 3. I would be interested to see if you could get thru one episode without the seemingly obligatory F-Bomb. I am a Mormon Democrat living in Utah. You do the math. Thanks for a great product.

What they’re basically saying is: Dear John Oliver, f*ck you. Here’s s crate off our product, go shove it up you’re a*s. I think this is the first time in the history of the world than anyone has outwitted John Oliver. It’s like someone out manipulating Petyr Baelish, or out thinking Tyrion Lannister

Ayyyy a completely reasonable response to being made fun of by John Oliver. I can see the pr people at Murray Energy now..."should we send them a joking response that makes our company look like it cares? Nah. Lawsuit"

POM earns big kudos from me for responding in this way. This is so unlike most companies. I hope many other companies will learn to respond to any criticism this way. Thanks.

Well played, POM.
Annika Burks (11 months ago)
if humiliating and making fun of a product gets you tons of the product let me just say: Tesla electric suvs are terrible cars which can barely run for 3 minutes before having to get recharged, endless pools are horrific exercise things and are way too expensive and take up too much space, Hamilton tickets are worthless pieces of sh*t that at best get you a seat in the very back...

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
