The man famous for his 1990s show about nothing is back with a web-based show about a very specific something. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is pretty much what the new Crackle.com program’s title sounds like. With each weekly episode, Jerry Seinfeld of Seinfeld fame and a fellow comedian drive around town in one of Seinfeld’s classic cars and yuk it up while on their way to a different NY coffee house.
It’s a little known fact outside of classic car collecting circles that Seinfeld owns one of the world’s largest Porsche collections, including a Can-Am Spyder racing car he snagged for $4.4 million at a Florida auction. Each week a different vintage vehicle from his garage will make appearance on the show. A one-minute promotional video released last week shows Seinfeld driving a classic Porsche, Triumph, Dodge Charger and Volkswagen Beetle with the likes of Alec Baldwin, Larry David and former co-star Michael Richards, who played Kramer in the Seinfeld series) riding shotgun.
A subsequent, longer promo video shows less car, more coffee – except when Larry David starts a tiff by ordering tea. Other that those two promos, little info has been released about the show. It premieres live online July 9, 9pm EDT. We here at E3 Spark Plugs are anxious to tune in and see Seinfeld’s well polished vintage rides and hope the coffee and comedy will keep our attention too.
