Joel McHale's Spoof of Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee' Is Everything You Didn't Know You Needed
There are literally a million reasons that it's a good idea to watch this clip, but the biggest one is simply the genius concept itself: E!'s The Soup, which is brilliantly hosted by Community's Joel McHale, parodied Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee web series...by enlisting Tony Hale for his version, "Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine."
See, I told you: Genius.
In the clip, which is fashioned shot-for-shot the exact same way Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is, we see McHale driving down a residential street in LA introducing the episode's retro car: A 1959 Ford Skyliner with "a convertible hard-top, it's painted flame red with colonial white, a 300 horsepower engine, and a 352 cubic inch V8." It's certainly a car worthy of Seinfeld himself, but what happens next really, really is not: McHale picks up the episode's "guest," Veep star Tony Hale, and the two drive around LA talking casually about doing cocaine and pointing out the massive amount of cokeheads they pass on the street. Still, though, things don't take any crazy turns until the duo actually goes to get the cocaine...and, to say the least, sh*t gets real. I won't spoil the details for you because it really is better if you just watch the episode unfold in the clip, but I will say that Hale's ability to handle a gun is rather surprising.
Check out the clip below. Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine will probably air never.
