John Oliver has hit a lot of tough topics on "Last Week Tonight" in recent weeks, from America's prisons to nuclear weapons to net neutrality. To spice things up a bit, Oliver decided to address another pressing issue in his July 27 episode: Russia's missing space sex geckos.

It turns out Oliver was able to get a lot of support on the issue, which he highlights in the above segment. Who knows, maybe some people will even write letters to Vladmir Putin like Oliver suggests. #GoGetThoseGeckos.

"Last Week Tonight" airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
