In anticipation of his taking over The Daily Show last month, Trevor Noah and co. hid a bunch of short ad videos in specific Google searches.

Like this:

Here are the ones we found, but there are probably more. It's pretty clever and fun to find them.

Let us know if you stumble across any we didn't catch!

This gay couple really pulled one over on a pizzeria. Sort of.

Surely you remember Memories Pizza in Indiana. They were the company that said they would refuse service to any gay couple wanting the restaurant to cater their wedding.

It caused quite a stir. To the point where the pizzeria had to close under a wave of Yelp reviews and protests. Then, they received a healthy bout of funding from a supportive GoFundMe. It brought them almost $1 million, enough to open back up the restaurant and return to healthy, happy business.

Until now.

The description of the video says it all:

On Friday, September 25, 2015, GayCo Ensemble Member Robin Trevino drove to Walkerton, IN. GayCo's current production of 50 States of Gay celebrates the Supreme Court decision which made same-sex marriage the law of the land in the US by choosing a different state out of a hat each week. When Indiana was chosen, Robin decided to have a vow renewal/first legal ceremony in the state where he resides - Illinois. He drove to Walkerton; to Memories Pizza, where he purchased a couple pizzas, froze them in a cooler and brought them home. On Saturday, September 26, 2015 we was married to his husband before a legal officiant. After the ceremony, the happy couple (and their one year old daughter) served Memories Pizza to all their guests. Congrats to Memories Pizza for (unknowingly) catering your FIRST GAY WEDDING!

You know, it's not exactly catering it. But they seemed pleased with the ruse, and their marriage, so good for them.

Mr. Smithers might finally come out of the closet this season.

Come on out, Mr. Smithers. We're all waiting for you.

The Simpsons new season, which just began Sept. 27, might have some lasting changes to the cast. Specifically, Mr. Smithers just might admit his sexuality to Mr. Burns.

It's long been known that Mr. Smithers is gay, for a while it was used as the only aspect of that character, but it's remained hidden from the dastardly Mr. Burns for the duration of the two's working relationship.

Speaking to TV Line, Executive Producer Al Jean revealed a little teaser about what's to come in the 27th season:

"In Springfield now, most people know he's gay, but obviously Burns doesn't," Jean notes. "We deal with that in two episodes. … We actually do a lot with Smithers this year; he gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options."

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

But don't worry Mr. Smithers. It gets better.

We've come quite a long way since Don't Ask Don't Tell.

President Obama announced his nomination for the next Secretary of the Army Sept. 18 and it's Eric Fanning, an openly gay man.

If confirmed, Fanning would take over for current Secretary John McHugh who will soon leave the post.

Reuters has more details on the appointment:

Fanning is currently serving as acting Army undersecretary, and previously worked as Air Force undersecretary and chief of staff to U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter. His nomination to the post must still be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

"Eric brings many years of proven experience and exceptional leadership to this new role," Obama said in a statement. "I am confident he will help lead America's soldiers with distinction."

Carter called Fanning's nomination "an excellent choice" by Obama and said he hoped for a quick Senate confirmation.

A quick confirmation might not be in store if history is any indication. President Obama has had more nominations blocked by Senate filibuster threat than any other president.

It's been kind of a mixed bag for athletes making the difficult decision to come out as gay. It helps to have Hermione on your side.

Keegan Hirst recently broke many boundaries, coming out as Britain's first openly gay rugby player. For a macho guy in a macho sport with macho teammates and macho fans, it wasn't the easiest of decisions. He's received a lot of support for the decision, marking even more how much the world has grown in a short time.

And in a beautiful and classy move, Emma Watson congratulated Hirst in a series of tweets Aug. 18.

Hirst spoke to the Daily Mirror about coming out Aug. 15.

Respected prop Keegan, 27, reveals the secret torment of dealing with his sexuality while carving out a career in one of the world's most macho sports.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Mirror, the dad of two tells of the moment he finally found the words to explain to his wife the reason they could no longer be together.

And he talks emotionally of the support he got, not only from her but also from his rugby team-mates.

The 6ft 4in captain of West ­Yorkshire side Batley Bulldogs said: "At first I couldn't even say 'I'm gay' in my head, let alone out loud.

"Now I feel like I'm letting out a long breath that I've held in for a long time."

Societal attitudes take a long time to evolve, but that evolution couldn't happen without people like Hirst taking initiative and influential people like Watson supporting them.

Well done, everyone.

No it's not a Vine magic trick, it's a miracle! Or something like that.

At the Church of God in Christ's 107th Holy Convocation last weekend in St. Louis, a man announced that he had been "delivered" from his homosexuality. He vowed to never carry a purse again or wear makeup, all the while speaking in tongues. Sounds pretty legit.

You can watch the whole video below, including the celebrational, post-deliverance dance.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is making headlines Thursday, and not because of a new Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad. In a column for Bloomerg Businessweek, Cook has come out to the public as a gay man.

"While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven't publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."

He admits that many of his colleagues already knew, and he has not been silent in the past about speaking up publicly on discrimination.

He also says that privacy is a big issue for him, but "if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it's worth the trade-off with my own privacy."
