John Oliver and This Week Right Now Or Whatever The Fuck It's CalledLast Week Tonight were on hiatus this week, but Oliver still had time for a few minutes of 100% prime grade web-only content. So he decided to give cicadas, who will soon emerge from underground, a quick recap on what's been going on since 1999, the last time they breached surface level to get freaky with each other.

Watch below as Oliver hits all the highlights of the last 17 years, from Willennium to the end of dial-up internet tones, from the Bush family legacy to insufferable Red Sox fans, and from Michael Jordan's tears to the lack of Cosby Show reruns. Cicadas don't even know that the curly-haired guy from NSYNC is now one of the biggest entertainers in the world.
