'Daily Show' Trolls Jon Stewart Over Return With Hilarious Reminder

It’s been a minute since Jon Stewart left “The Daily Show.”

So, to mark the Wednesday announcement of his (partial) return to helming the program, its team refreshed viewers’ minds on who’d soon be back on their screens.

“If you’re unfamiliar with his work, this is the popcorn gif guy,” the show jokingly wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

Indeed, a clip of Stewart munching on popcorn during his time on the show from 1999 to 2015 is often deployed on social media to signal that folks are waiting for a massive argument to go down.


Stewart himself has previously embraced the meme too.
