With the Occupy Wall Street protests growing in attention, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart finally weighed in on the movement Thursday evening and gave special attention to one notorious pepper-spraying cop.

Upon learning that the name of the high ranking police office was Anthony Bologna, Stewart had a confused look on his face. “Come on, Anthony Bologna, you and I both know that guy’s name is Tony Baloney,” he said.

Stewart then decided to tell the audience the cop’s favorite things.

“Tony Baloney: Favor pasta, rigatoni. Favorite island, Coney, favorite Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi. Favor southern buffet restaurant, Shoney’s. Favorite dessert…..fresh mix berries. You thought I would say spumoni or tortoni. He’s lactose-in-toleroni.”

In Stewart’s mind, Bologna’s actions has all the makings of a successful TV series. With all that considered, the comedian decided to release a promo video of “The Vigilogna,” staring Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni as Bologna.

WATCH: Video from Comedy Central, which appeared on September 29, 2011.
