While Last Week Tonight is off HBO's airwaves this week, host John Oliver had some important information he couldn't withhold from the public, in what can only be described as the greatest conspiracy video ever created. While poking fun at the extensive library of conspiracy videos on YouTube, ranging from the Denver airport being designed by the Illuminati or that Katy Perry is actually JonBenet Ramsey, the comedian tied together Cadbury Creme Eggs with the Illuminati. 

"Cadbury Creme Egg is a terrible candy that tastes like mermaid placenta covered in candle wax," Oliver says. "Every year these eggs show up in January. ... But why?" Well, according to the host, all you have to do is "follow the money." 

The Cadbury money trail outlined will take you to Germany, question why Bono seems to be everywhere all the time — and of course — tie in the Illuminati. Tracing the history of Cadbury Creme Eggs, which used to be sold as Fry's Creme Eggs, Oliver notices a commonality: Fry has three letters, just like the three sides of a triangle. 

"Take a Creme Egg, cut it in half, and put it in that triangle," Oliver says. "What does that look like? The Illuminati eye of prominence pyramid. I'll give you a second to recover now, cause I just blew your fucking mind!" 

Check out the full segment below, and be prepared to never look at Cadbury Eggs the same way again.
