John Oliver sends more "riff-raff" to Yankee Stadium luxury seats

NEW YORK-- John Oliver has put more "riff-raff" in the premium seats at Yankee Stadium.

Two young women dressed in unicorn costumes and two others in shark costumes sat in the second row behind home plate Wednesday night, the latest fans to win high-priced tickets for 25 cents apiece from HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" after promising to dress like "riff-raff" at the ballpark.

Oliver is looking to shake things up during New York's season-opening series this week against Houston. Claiming the Yankees are elitist, the comedian is selling premium seats for a quarter to fans who pledge to dress as though they don't belong there.

Two male fans wore yellow and green Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles outfits in the Legends Suites luxury seats at Tuesday's game.

After the Yankees announced that fans no longer could print tickets at home, chief operating officer Lonn Trost explained on radio station WFAN in February that someone buying a discounted ticket from a resale service "may be someone who has never sat in a premium location, so that's a frustration to our existing fan base."

As CBSSports.com noted, to win the right to buy the tickets, you have to tweet a photo of yourself dressed up in "riff-raff" attire to @lastweektonight with the hashtag #IHAVENEVERSATINAPREMIUMLOCATION. Behold some of the submissions below:
