Mysterious <i>Seinfeld</i> Reunion Revealed in Super Bowl Commercial

After nearly a month of speculation as to what Jerry Seinfeld’s secret Seinfeld reunion project involving Larry David and Jason Alexander was, we finally have a somewhat underwhelming answer: a Super Bowl commercial for an episode of the comedian’s popular web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Seinfeld had previously stated that the project was neither a Super Bowl commercial nor an episode of Comedians, though he had also cryptically answered that it was “not not those things either.” We suppose technically “both” isn’t “either,” but still.

Titled “The Over-Cheer,” the episode sees Seinfeld and Alexander (reprising his role as George Costanza) take a 1976 American Motors Pacer (“a total disaster from initial concept to final execution”) to the familiar Tom’s Restaurant for a quick coffee during the Super Bowl halftime show. The two old friends then discuss George’s outlandish behavior two years ago that got him banned from the Wassersteins’ Super Bowl party before Seinfeld’s arch-rival Newman (who apparently was rooting for the slaughterous Seattle Seahawks) makes an appearance that makes up the majority of the commercial’s preview.
