We're still in semi-denial about the fact that Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show after sixteen years in just over a month, but seeing as we keep getting wonderful reminders such as this, we're slowly coming around.

Billy Chasen decided to celebrate the forthcoming end of Stewart's tenure on The Daily Show by making this timelapse of every Stewart appearance (plus some special guests) since his first day in 1999.

Our favourite thing about this is the fact that Stewart's hair has remained relatively unchanged since 1999 apart from getting a bit greyer. That and, as on YouTube comment points out, the "months when Jon became a skinny British dude". Damn it we're going to miss him.
