"Last Week Tonight" Video for discussion in Statistics class

I like to edit videos that I can use in class.

There are many great videos out there, unfortunately, sometimes the ones I like are inappropriate for school, so I have to edit them before I use in class.

Here's an example from Last Week Tonight.  It is HEAVILY edited, but I think a really good piece for discussion in Statistics.

Here is the edited version:

Please share your thoughts if you think there is something that isn't school appropriate still in the video.  I know we have different thresholds, but please share any thoughts you have.  I can always go back and edit more.

Here is the unedited YouTube video:


  1. I love this! Thank you for sharing. I can't wait to use this in my AP Stats class.

    1. No problem Amanda! If anyone thinks they have a good idea of how to incorporate some more formal materials with this, I would appreciate it. I would also be happy to co-create some resources if anyone is interested.

  2. Fantastic video. I plan to use it in class, but I think you should crop the last 15 seconds of the guy in the lab coat gesturing at his crotch.
