“I was in our Nation’s Capital and there’s only one place to eat when you’re in our Nation’s Capital. But they were closed.”
Jerry Seinfeld is currently in pop culture’s good graces thanks to his excellent web-turned-Netflix series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. And now, to help spread the word, he’s started leaving restaurant reviews on Google Maps based on the establishments his visits with his guests.
The reviews started to surface in the first week of August, and only four have been posted so far (compared to more than 70 episodes overall, and the 12 since the show became a Netflix production). It’s a nifty bit of promotion further enhanced by Seinfeld’s comedic sensibilities.
I mean, let’s be real: Most of what he’s written so far probably falls into the category of groan-worthy dad jokes. But Seinfeld is a 64-year-old father of three. He’s living his truth, folks.
“Enjoyed breakfast at the Omelet House in Las Vegas with Jerry Lewis on Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” one review reads. “Do not confuse this place with the Omelet Apartment, Omelet Condo or Omelet Airbnb. Or mistake this place for the Waffle House, Pancake House or Pancake Shed.”
Another, from a review of the DINER, featured in the Season 10 episode with Dave Chappelle: “You feel a sense of pride being in Washington DC. You can hear the taunts and boos at the politicians anywhere you go. If you’re lucky, you can see a politician get shamed out of a restaurant.”
It seems like the four reviews shared so far were posted in one go, and they’re all from the most recent, tenth season. Let’s see if Seinfeld keeps up with it. Read what he’s posted so far right here.
