Meet Marlon Bundo, a lonely bunny who lives at the Naval Observatory with his Grampa, the Vice President of the United States. Marlon's life changes forever on a very special day when he meets the bunny of his dreams: Wesley. When the two decide to get married, they are told by the Stink Bug that, "Boy bunnies can't marry boy bunnies!" Marlon and Wesley's group of animal friends rally around them and decide to exercise their democratic rights by voting out the Stink Bug. Wesley and Marlon are happily wed surrounded by their animal friends, reminding us that, "Stink Bugs are temporary. Love is forever."Launched live on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on March 18, A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is dedicated to every bunny who has ever felt different.
