"Larry Eats A Pancake"
That's the title of the first episode of Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which features a 1952 Volkswagen Beetle and long-time Seinfeld friend, Larry David. The web series episode premiered on Sony's Crackle.com Thursday night and can be seen on the website ComediansInCarsGettingCoffee.com.
The Bug is beautifully restored and there are lots of shots of it looking out of place on the roads of Los Angeles throughout the 13-minute video. Seinfeld sums up the 25-horsepower car perfectly, "And if like me, you believe true humility is always in short supply, this is the car for you."
There's also a funny bit when Seinfeld pulls up next to a Bugatti Veyron and points out both are made by Volkswagen.
Really, the car is secondary character this show, as Seinfeld and David trade thoughts on the car, being Jewish and eating pancakes. But the project also appears to be something of a passion for Seinfeld or at least a way for him to get into vintage vehicles. There are no commercials.
The next episode will premiere on August 2 and feature Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais cruising around in an Austin Healey. Check out the video and the preview on the website ComediansInCarsGettingCoffee.com.
