How good will the upcoming return of the Acura NSX be? So good, apparently, that despite still being three years out, the supercar has converted well-known Porsche fan Jerry Seinfeld to worship at the altar of the NSX Concept.

Though we wouldn't think the creator and namesake of the hit TV show Seinfeld would need any more money (syndication ftw!), here he is shilling for Acura, obsessed with being first in line for a product that the Japanese automaker isn't expected to begin selling until 2015. Turns out, however, he's not the only comedian with more money than sense who wants an NSX.

Watch the commercial yourself, and help us posit why Acura would spend millions of dollars producing a Super Bowl commercial that doesn't promote any of its currently available products. Couple this commercial with parent company Honda's ad that features Matthew Broderick reprising his role as Ferris Bueller, and we think Honda and company have earned this year's award for spending the most on celebrity talent.

      As long as the Soup Nazi is not at the dealership, "NO CAR FOR YOU, NEXT!"

      What a fantastic commercial. Could use to see a little more of the car but hey, entertaining to say the least

      I have to admit I laughed when he unzipped the alien and said "ok bad idea." But this isn't a car commercial. This should be used to sell a watch or any other ridiculously priced, gawdy showpiece that douchebag celebrities love to flaunt. The NSX concept is gorgeous even though Acura is hanging onto some of the design language that has all but ruined the TL, but I certainly don't trust Leno or Seinfeld's opinion on what makes a great or even acceptable sports car.

        Jerry's opinion? Probably not. Leno's opinion? Yes. The man's driven the Autobahn in a 'Vette, and he's driven the Nurbergring. His entire collection would take a full day to sell at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale.

      Soooooo... Does it really have sequential headlights? Why didn't Audi think of that?

      Funny how everyone but autobloggers love this car and this commercial.

      Dear Honda, How about we correct the Civic first. Thank you,

      It would be nice if they publish some initial target performance numbers and specs. If this comes close to the specs of Porsche 918 spyder and costs under $200k, then it will be every bit as revolutionary as the original NSX (design TBD on the other hand).

      Stupid... Looks like an AUDI wanna be. Good combination Seinfeld and a wanna be car. They are both a joke

        Damnit Dan, is there a reason you always have to rain fun on everyone's parade?

        You must be Elon Musk. There is no other reasonable explanation.

        Global warming BS aside, he is right about electric. Electric motors are more efficient-its science, not opinion. The only thing holding them back for now is battery tech. His comment does sound like a bunch of tin foil hat cr@p though. Could have been legitimate if the entire second half was left out.
