You know those cute animal videos you find on Youtube that feature unlikely friendships? You know, like a kitten and a fawn cuddling, or a baby duck waddling behind a mini-horse or a parrot wrestling a pit bull? Seeing comedian Jerry Seinfeld chop it up with hip hop artist Wale in a diner was kind of like that, and Complex Magazine captured every bit of their odd bonding session beautifully. The magazine staged a viral worthy segment featuring the two artists bemoaning Wale’s absence on Complex’s top album list. Their encounter morphs into a brilliant series of segments that resemble a mash-up of everything we love about Seinfeld and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
I normally don’t like forced viral videos, but this one is brilliant.
These two wax poetically on new shoes, Twitter trolls, therapy, terraces and the peculiar duality of being a foodie/strip club enthusiast. My favorite bit is the one about the burden of “celebrity”. It’s classic Jerry.
I need a Seinfeld video like this in my life every week. Well played Complex. Well played.
Every Monday should start off with this!
One thought on “Jerry Seinfeld and Wale are Sitting in a Diner…and their Chemistry is Complex…”
Jerry seems more comfortable than Wale, but I guess that’s to be expected.
