Pepsi pulled its laughably tone-deaf protest-themed ad starring Kendall Jenner less than 24 hours after it hit YouTube — but that didn’t stop America’s late night hosts from ripping the commercial to shreds last night.

The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah jokes that “all brands need to become more woke” after this Pepsi flub, and he wonders what that might mean for companies like Coca-Cola, Mr. Clean, and Carl’s Jr.:

During his Tonight Show monologue last night, Jimmy Fallon also quipped that when Kendall hands the cop a Pepsi, his look says, “Are you all out of Coke?”
