“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will feel downright presidential when the popular Web series returns Dec. 30th.
That’s because Barack Obama will be Jerry Seinfeld’s guest for the premiere of Season 7, whose later episodes on Sony’s Crackle platform will feature a return to full-time comedians, including Will Ferrell and Steve Martin.
The president can be heard — but not seen — supposedly answering a White House phone in a YouTube trailer posted Monday, but a Crackle press release photo appears to show Obama sharing a laugh with Seinfeld. Astute fans of Seinfeld’s conversational series will note that, unlike previous “Coffee” installments that feature the host doubling as a chauffeur, the photo relating to the Obama episode shows both the host and guest as passengers in a vehicle emblazoned with a presidential seal.
However, they took turns taking the wheel of a different vehicle at another point of their conversation.
“The episode featuring President Obama was shot at the White House earlier this month, and features both the President and Seinfeld driving a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe, and talking about life in the White House over coffee,” reads part of Crackle’s press release, issued Monday.
In a statement, Seinfeld found the experience to be out of this world.
