On Tuesday, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) celebrated his 72nd birthday with a cake made from Twinkies along with his staff. In a video he shared on Twitter, the former presidential candidate was seen accepting the cake from his aides – and then picking out each individual candle to blow them out one by one.

Immediately, social media went viral over Romney’s weird candle-blowing method, and the video provided fodder for three of the top late night hosts’ shows that night. In his “meanwhile” segment, Stephen Colbert joked that “everything he does is like an alien googled how to do a normal.” In a similar vein, Trevor Noah called the action “extremely weird.” And both comedians made the same joke as fellow late night host Jimmy Kimmel – saying it made sense for Romney to have a Twinkie cake because, like him, they’re white on the outside and “even whiter on the inside.”
