John Oliver Topped Mike Pence on Amazon With His Gay Bunny Book

John Oliver Topped Mike Pence on Amazon With His Gay Bunny Book


Dominantly topping the Vice President's book to raise money for charity one day at a time.

On Monday, John Oliver and Jill Twiss, the writer for Last Week Tonight, released a book called Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, which was created to compete-- and, in fact, has outsold-- Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President, which was written by Mike Pence's daughter Charlotte and illustrated by his wife, Karen.

The Pence book is being outsold by both the hardcover version of Oliver and Twiss's book, but also the audiobook version, which is voiced by Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garlin, Ellie Kemper, John Lithgow, Jack McBrayer, and RuPaul.

The Oliver book follows the life of a gay bunny as he falls in love with another male bunny, and he also defeats a villain that doesn't think boy bunnies should marry, a stink-bug that happens to look like Vice President Pence. It was released a day before the Pence book, which is a bunny's-eye-view account of a day with Pence, in order to draw attention to his anti-gay positions.

The proceeds from both books are going to charity. Pence's book will donate money to A21, an organization focused on stopping human trafficking, and the much more successful Last Week Tonight version will donate its funds to the Trevor Project and AIDS United.

"Please, buy it for your children, buy it for any child you know, or just buy it because you know it would annoy Mike Pence," Oliver said. "You would be doing a nice thing in a really dickish way, and isn't that the dream at the end of the day?"
