Well, I don’t have any original content for you today, but I’ve gathered some video goodness for you to fly through until I do.
Nine years later, Seinfeld remains a brilliant TV show. I can still watch it in reruns, even though I’ve seen most of the episodes at least a three times. (Except, having watched a couple seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm, I notice that I do find myself clicking away from some of the more uncomfortable George bits now.)
TBS has a few clips you can see here, and some enterprising soul has illustrated one of Seinfeld’s stand-up routines. I’d never heard it before and it’s quite fun, particularly for North Americans who enjoyed the ritual of collecting candy at Halloween in their youth. This clip also features Seinfeld’s obsession with Superman to good effect. You know what’s wrong with the Superman-Seinfeld Amex ads? Superman has Puddy’s voice. I mean, come on, it’s Puddy!
By the way, in that first Amex ad, is it me, or are they implying that the Man of Steel might be, you know, a little aluminum in the loafers?
Not that there’s anything wrong with that!
