In a marked contrast to Jon Stewart's nebbish-ey persona, Trevor Noah plays the cool guy in The Daily Show's new promo video for the Comedy Central late-night show.

As Kanye West's "Power" plays in the background, the dapper new host struts through the corridors backstage to take his seat at the Daily Show desk.

(Somehow even those hallways look cooler — a lot more like a nightclub than they did in when Stewart gave viewers a look backstage in his farewell episode.)

But some things never change — including, apparently, the chair itself that Noah's about to claim.

Watch the full promo below.
