The men of the ‘billionaire space race’ duke it out in space aboard rockets shaped like their penises in an outrageous promo for Jon Stewart’s upcoming Apple TV show.
The parody trailer, which pokes fun at the tycoons vying for a slice of the future space tourism pie, stars Seinfeld alum Jason Alexander as Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos.
‘I’m going to ride a rocket into space and it’s going to look just like my d**k,’ the fake Bezos proclaims at a press conference.
Stewart is not the only one who noticed the peculiar shape of Bezos’ rocket, with people taking to social media to comment.
The real Bezos completed a 10-minute journey to the edge of the Earth Tuesday morning aboard a rocket from his company.

In the video, Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock alum Tracy Morgan is credited as ‘diverse friend who would never actually hang out with Jeff Bezos in real life.’
‘We’ve been there before, many times,’ Morgan warns.

Sen. Sanders aired his grievances with the men of the ‘billionaire space race’ in tweet after Bezos’ launch.
‘Am I supposed to be impressed that a billionaire went to space while he’s paid zero in federal income taxes some years and the workers at his company struggle to afford their medical bills, rent, and food for their kids?’ he asked.
‘Nope. It’s time to invest in working people here on Earth.’

The mock trailer appears to be a promo for the former Daily Show host’s upcoming current affairs show on Apple TV+, slated to begin streaming in September.
