The kind of space race that billionaires Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Richard Branson are fighting is giving a lot to talk about these weeks. So much so that the American comedian Jon Stewart has taken advantage of the situation to promote your upcoming show for Apple TV + – Baptized as The Problem with Jon Stewart. How did you do it? Through a funny video in which he makes fun of these three tycoons and all their pretensions.
In the role of Jeff Bezos we find Jason alexander, known for participating in the series Seinfeld. While Richard Branson is played by a mop. And yes, literally, it is a mop on a spaceship. All tycoon ships, moreover, are penis-shaped and compete with each other in both shape and size. In other words: it’s a constant mockery of the initiatives of Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson.
The Jon Stewart Show will premiere in fall, but the relationship that this funny video has with the episodes is a mystery. You can see the full video in the following tweet:

These weeks both Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson have given much to talk about. Both tycoons have made flights into space aboard the ships created by their own companies: Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic. However, there is some debate about the reality behind these missions: space tourism, technological-scientific advance or simple billionaire whim?
Also in this equation is Elon Musk, whose company, SpaceX, has closed several contracts with NASA, has the ambition to participate in the arrival of humans on other planets (such as Mars) and wants to make the human species become interplanetary . Recently, in fact, Musk’s company took a group of astronauts to the International Space Station, something that no other private company had achieved until now. Musk, like the other two billionaires, also plans to fly into space, but will do so with Virgin Galactic, rather than SpaceX.
