So, teen pop star Justin Bieber hosted “The Daily Show” last night, sitting at Jon Stewart’s desk, and welcomed guest Navy Admiral Mike Mullen. He even did Stewart’s signature pen-toss. Check the video above.
Actually he only hosted it for about 10 seconds during a gag in which he and Jon Stewart switched bodies, part of an elaborate, semi-comedic scheme to promote the Biebs biopic “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.” But the ruse lasted long enough to make it possible to imagine a world with Bieber as talk show host.
The real Jon Stewart emerged in a purple sweatshirt holding a skull, revealing the situation to be a “Freaky Friday” type swicheroo. The skull can change them back, but while Bieber is desperate to get out of the “haunted house” that is Stewart’s body, Stewart has a hard time saying goodbye to his new-found youth.
