Nearly eight months after the January 6th insurrection at the US Capitol, rioters are slowly but surely facing the consequences of their own actions (boo-hoo). If, for reasons unimaginable to us, you happen to have been one of the insurrectionists who are now in a pickle with the law, we know someone who might be able to help: Trevor Noah. The Daily Show host is pivoting to the legal game, as indicated by a new advertisement.
Full-page and definitely very real ads have appeared in both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times promoting Noah’s new law firm, aptly titled Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons. If you need some help cleaning up your sad, tainted reputation, the ad urges you to “Storm [their] law offices today!”
Services include the defense of “First-degree normal tourist activity,” “Lectern theft,” and “Stuff you admitted to in a Facebook post for some reason.” If you’d rather give them a call than break through the firm’s windows and prop your feet on Noah’s desk, you can reach Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons at 1-85-OOPS-JAN6. Sounds legit to us — perhaps Ariel Pink should give them a ring. Check out the ad below.
This isn’t the first time Noah has dabbled in the faux-legal industry: Last year, The Daily Show similarly ran a full-page ad directed at a certain “a soon-to-be ex-president” — we can’t imagine who the ad would be referencing.
