Crash bang wallop what a video. Well done Olivia Munn. Congratulations the American edition of Maxim. Happy Birthday world. Big old tick for you, video cameras. This is a triumph on so many levels we can’t even count the levels.

And the thing that really stands out, is this: Olivia Munn is funny.

And not only that. She’s funny ‘haha’ not “what’s that smell?” funny. Funny as in “mate, JOKES” rather than “hm, that growth on your cheek looks a bit funny”. Good funny, not bad funny. Funny enough to be on The Daily Show presented by Jon Stewart, one of the finest examples of sharp and incisive satirical writing in the whole world.

Yeah, the whole world. Not just America, the whole world. Not just the Western world, the whole world.

On The Daily Show, 30-year-old Olivia Munn is the senior Asian correspondent, the senior espionage correspondent, the body-size expert, and a senior media analyst. She’s also been in the films Iron Man 2, I Don’t Know How She Does It and the TV programme Perfect Couples (“about three different couples and how these six people interact with each other”, she told Maxim). Yes, all the hits.

This is the second time she’s been on the Maxim cover:

This was the first:

And then last year she got to number eight in Maxim’s Hot 100 list. IN EXACTLY THE SAME YEAR, she came 52nd in our very own 100 Sexiest Women in the World list. What does it mean? What does it mean? It means this: Olivia Munn is more famous in America than she is in England.

Shit happens, readers.
