Jon Stewart shared a video selling his upcoming Apple TV Plus present, The Drawback with Jon Stewart, and it’s an odd one: the three-minute and ten-second clip shared on Twitter is a comedy skit roasting the current billionaire house race, starring Jason Alexander as Jeff Bezos and a mop as Richard Branson. There are additionally a whole lot of dick jokes.
Sorry for the aborted launch!!! I’m a nasty twitterer.

It’s unclear precisely how this would possibly relate to the present itself, which is ready to debut in September. Apple introduced in April that the present could be “a multiple season, one-hour, single-issue series” and every season can have a “companion podcast” launched alongside it — it didn’t point out something about comedy sketches lampooning house billionaires. It’s additionally nonetheless unclear what number of episodes can be included in a season or what number of seasons the present can have.
I’ve to say that this is pretty hilarious, though:
