Although The Problem with Jon Stewart doesn’t premiere on Apple TV+ until September, the comedian couldn’t let Jeff Bezos’ and Richard Branson’s personal space race go by without comment. Stewart posted a video Tuesday making fun of billionaires competing to see who can shoot off a better rocket.

The humor isn’t subtle. Many jokes have been made about how much Bezos’ New Shepard rocket looks like a penis, and Stewart takes the idea and runs with it. If watching a video of giant space penises is going to get you in trouble at work, maybe you’d better wait until you get home to see this one.

If not, watch the mockery now:

The three-minute video, which stars Jason Alexander as Bezos, clearly benefited from a significant budget. And it doubles as advertising for Stewart’s upcoming Apple TV+ show.

The Problem with Jon Stewart will be a one-hour, single-issue series exploring topics that are currently part of the national conversation. Like the billionaire space race.

Stewart’s return to TV, six years after he left The Daily Show, launches this September. Apple did not yet reveal a specific date. Still, the first two episodes already have been recorded.

Watching Stewart’s return to TV will require a $4.99-per-month subscription to Apple TV+.
