The men of the “billionaire space race” battle it out in space aboard rockets shaped like their penises in a crazy promo for Jon Stewart’s upcoming Apple TV show.
In the parody trailer, which pokes fun at the tycoons competing for a slice of the future space tourism pie, Seinfeld alumnus Jason Alexander plays Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos.
“I’m going into space on a rocket and it will look just like my dick,” the fake Bezos announced at a news conference.
Stewart isn’t alone in noticing the quirky shape of Bezos’ rocket, with people taking to social media to comment.
The real Bezos made a 10-minute journey to the edge of the earth on Tuesday morning aboard a company rocket.

Bezos says the space venture was funded by selling him $1 billion worth of Amazon stock each year, though he was criticized by the public and politicians like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was criticized for not paying his share of taxes.
The video credits Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock alum Tracy Morgan as “a diverse friend who would never hang out with Jeff Bezos in real life.”
“We’ve been there before,” Morgan warns.
“Do you know we sent a chimpanzee into space in 1961?”

People took to Twitter to comment on the capsule above Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket
sen. Sanders expressed his grievances with the men of the “billionaire space race” in a tweet after the launch of Bezos.
“Should I be impressed that a billionaire has gone to space after several years with no federal income taxes and the workers of his company are struggling to pay their medical bills, rent and food for their children?” he asked.
‘New. It’s time to invest in working people here on earth.’

The 3-minute video was reposted to Stewart’s Twitter account after it was inexplicably removed on Tuesday, with Stewart apologizing for the “aborted launch.”
The mock trailer appears to be a promo for the former Daily Show host’s upcoming current affairs show on Apple TV+, which will begin streaming in September.
