Leave it to "The Daily Show" to repurpose "Harperman" in the funniest way possible.

The late-night satirical news show reported on Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party's election to a majority government this week.

But host Trevor Noah was careful to note that wasn't the only big news that came out of Canada Monday night.

Noting Trudeau's victory, Noah said that outgoing Conservative Leader Stephen Harper was plagued by "Canadian-style criticism" on the campaign trail — namely, the protest song "Harperman."

He also found a whole new use for the song that had us howling. But we'll let you discover it for yourself.

This isn't the only time Canada's election has served as fodder for late-night TV.

On Sunday, the night before Canadians went to the ballot box, "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" hosted a lengthy monologue about Canada's laws against outside influence in its elections, urging Canadians to vote against Stephen Harper.

The world is still talking about you, Canada. Soak it in.
