The Internet Has Already Written An A+ ‘Seinfeld’ Script For Jerry’s Epic Snubbing Of Kesha
On Tuesday a video of Jerry Seinfeld practically fleeing in terror from Kesha as she tried to give him a hug went viral. It laughable on so many levels it will go down as one of the funniest videos of 2017, mark my words.
In case you still somehow haven’t seen it, what happened was Seinfeld was giving an interview on the red carpet at the National Night Of Laughter And Song event held over the weekend. At some point during the interview, Kesha, who was also performing that night, spotted Jerry and rushed up to give him a hug, telling him what a big fan she is.
Watch as Seinfeld recoils in terror, repeatedly telling Kesha, “No thanks.”
As you heard on the video, Seinfeld had no freaking clue who Kesha was and wanted zero part in hugging her. And really, neither party was at fault. I get why Seinfeld didn’t want to hug a stranger, and I get why Kesha wanted to hug Seinfeld.
All in all, it seems things ended up fine for both of them.
Now, as I pointed out on Tuesday, Jerry’s show Seinfeld had already dealt with the world of snubbing in one of their classic episodes…
However, that didn’t stop the internet, and more specifically Reddit, from taking quick action to turn Jerry’s snubbing of Kesha into a brand new script for the show.
Here’s how it begins…
Jerry: “So I’m standing there talking to this reporter, answering his questions, you know, and this lady walks up like she knows me, and does this hugging motion!”
George: “Hugging motion? Who does that?!”
Jerry, nodding: “This lady apparently. And I’m thinking to myself ‘Oh No, do I know this person? Is this that girl I dated last week? I can’t remember her name!’”
George: “Mulva, her name was Mulva. What was the hugging motion like? Was it like this?”
George comes at Jerry with open arms, just as Kramer barges into the apartment…
Naturally, Kramer at some point has to make an appearance…
Kramer: puts down a live chicken “So Jerry. I hear you turned down Kesha.”
Jerry and George together: “What’s a Kesha?”
Kramer: gathering hats from Jerry’s closet “What’s a Kesha? What’s a Kesha?! Wow, you’re really out of touch Jerry.” Begins trying different hats on the chicken
Other users continued to take it from there…
Jerry, looking exasperated with hands in the air: “That was my new agent. He says he’s booked a lunch meeting tomorrow with Kesha. Apparently she wants to work with me and thinks I’m the perfect spokesman for her new hat line.”
George: “You reject a hug from Kesha and now you get to have lunch with her!?”
Kramer, with chicken still in hand: “Wait just a minute Jerry. You’re saying that this Kesha has hats? Hats for your head? You’ve got to let me come with you to that lunch. I’ll drive you.”
And here’s the entire thing in all of its Seinfeldian glory…
You know what? I’d watch that.
