Hear Ezra Koenig Sing The Seinfeld Theme In @Seinfeld2000’s New Video Game
Perhaps you’re familiar with @SeinfeldToday, the 700,000-followers-strong Twitter account that imagines what the plots of Seinfeld episodes set today might look like, or @Seinfeld2000, a surrealist parody of @SeinfeldToday known for its intentional misspellings and grammatical errors. A few examples of @Seinfeld2000’s work:

Jason Richards, the man behind @Seinfeld2000, even created a companion video called Seinquest2000 and published an ebook called The Apple Store imagining what “Jery,” “Elane,” “Gerge,” and “Krame” would be up to 15 years after the series finale. And as The New York Times reports, Richards has also partnered with New Zealand video game designer Pippin Barr to create The Junior Mint, a game based on the 1993 Seinfeld episode of the same name. The goal is to drop as many Junior Mints as possible into the surgery patient below, which is genius. The game’s soundtrack is an a looped cappella version of the Seinfeld theme by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig that’s as goofy and fun as the concept. Hear that below.
Remember the season of Curb Your Enthusiasm about the Seinfeld reunion special? Prettay, prettay, prettay good.
