Tina Fey Wants To Be In Charge of Issuing Twitter Licenses.


With one exception (the Batmobile) I don't like cars, so I never considered watching Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee before. But Tina Fey was on this week, and after watching her and Jerry go get coffee and something called a cereal smoothie, I think I'm hooked.

Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Sequel to the Classic “Who’s on First?” Comedy Routine [Video]

Though it wasn't the first to play with words, the "Who's on First?" routine by Abbott and Costello is perhaps the most famous of its kind.

Jimmy Fallon, with the help of Billy Crystal and Jerry Seinfeld, has produced a sequel to the routine on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and let's just say we were pleasantly surprised.

Seinfeld Re-Cut Makes Jerry Look Like a Supervillain

YouTube user TRMUS1C makes these fun videos of Seinfeld where bits of the show (mostly) taken out of context are cut together, some dramatic music is added, and a new story is hatched without having many ties to the actual episodes that contain the scenes. Above is a cut wherein Jerry the Great attempts to take over the world with his evil cohort George, until Jerry sells his partner out, which is something that would totally happen to George.

Other Seinfeld cuts can be seen on TRMUS1C's YouTube channel, which include an inspirational take on George's life, something which the character probably could've used.

Microsoft’s Jerry Seinfeld/Bill Gates Ads Explained: They Were Trying to Be Like LOST


In 2008, Microsoft subjected itself to a good dose of online and IRL heckling with its puzzling commercials featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates, for which Seinfeld was reportedly paid $10 million. After three commercials, which were negatively (if unfairly) received, Microsoft promptly shelved the series, claiming that they were shifting to "the second phase of [their] advertising campaign ... as planned from the start." That next phase turned out to be the "I'm a PC" ads.

In an interview with a top Microsoft marketing strategist, TechFlash discovered that the confused reactions (though not their negativity) may have all been part of the plan: the aim of the commercials was to hook people in with their very obscurity, LOST-style.
