‘Seinfeld’ Reunion: Will They Do A Super Bowl Commercial?By: Val Powell - February 1, 2014
Fans of the TV show ‘Seinfeld’ could be in for a treat. On Jan. 6, comedian Jerry Seinfeld revealed that he was doing a “big, huge, gigantic” project that he co-wrote with Larry David. About a week later he was spotted at Tom’s Diner in Manhattan with former cast member Jason Alexander. Tom’s Diner was the Seinfeld crew’s meeting place on the show. So, is this a sign of a reunion?
In a Thursday interview with Boomer & Carton on WFAN radio, Jerry Seinfeld hinted at a reunion of the cast of ‘Seinfeld’. He said that he and his old crew had gotten together to film a one-off scene of some kind, a short film a bit longer than 60 seconds in duration. Seinfeld also said that the mystery project was scheduled to air “very soon”. In the interview, Seinfeld was asked if the film was a promotion for Sunday’s game or for his popular web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” The comedian gave a typical “Seinfeld answer” — “It’s not. But “It’s not-not” either of those things, he responded.
“I gave you more now than I’ve given anyone,” said Seinfeld. “I told you what it isn’t. And then I also told you that it isn’t not that, either.”
Sounds like a Super Bowl commercial. Could it be?
On Friday, Seinfeld’s publicist Tom Kearney was also being mysterious about the project. Kearney quickly dismissed the idea that the short film was a commercial but did confirm that the public would know soon.
This reunion is not the first for the cast since the show ended its run in 1998. Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards last appeared together in one episode of Larry David’s ‘Curb your Enthusiasm’ in 2009.
Ok, so we don’t really know what they’re up to but whatever it is will likely be entertaining and funny.
Yada yada yada, still sounds like a Super Bowl commercial.
