Earlier this month, we told you about the upcoming premier of comedian and car-guy Jerry Seinfeld’s latest endeavor
, a web-only series called Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee
. Like the television classic Seinfeld
, his new series takes the concept of a show about nothing to new extremes.
The opening episode stars Seinfeld co-creator Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld and a 1952 Volkswagen split-window Bug. The Azure Blue, 25-horsepower Volkswagen is by far the most interesting thing in the 13 minute video, which also covers why tea was at the root of David’s divorce, how pancakes are best when hot and why boxer briefs are better than briefs.
In other words, you’d have to be a hardcore Seinfeld fan, the type who memorizes every line in every episode, to find much humor in Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee
. Even Larry David notes that Seinfeld really has created a show about nothing, although it is well filmed and will likely highlight some pretty obscure cars from the comedian’s collection.
Don’t take our word for it, though. You can catch the debut episode on the show’s own website
, or you also watch it on Sony’s Crackle website
. The next episode airs on Thursday, August 2 and features Ricky Gervais in Seinfeld’s Austin Healey, over pothole-laden roads. We're pretty sure it will involve coffee, too.
