Fresh off his stint as a British bovine linguist, Sir Patrick Stewart has found another incredible gig: on The Daily Show, he recently portrayed Jade Rabbit, the Chinese lunar rover that may soon freeze to death. In order to bring some depth of emotion to what may be the final words ever issued by Chinese state media on behalf of the vehicle, the revered actor dressed up in a costume of the finest cardboard and gold tin foil, and proceeded to deliver a touching and hilarious soliloquy. You'll find his performance at 4:40 in the video below.
