Take a Look at Trevor Noah’s First Ad for The Daily Show

"No one man should have all that power..."

I’m not saying it’s perfect they used Kanye West’s “POWER” for the ad. But I’m not not saying that. Either way, Trevor Noah looks absolutely giddy to be stepping behind the big desk. And leave it to Comedy Central to make an ass joke while simultaneously spending 5 seconds (of a 30 second video) focused completely on Noah’s butt.

Plus the seat lowering thing. Was that a crack at Jon Stewart being short? Is he short? I don’t even know. Will you be checking out Noah’s debut on The Daily Show on September 28th?
