Seinfeld picks up POTUS as Comedians in Cars returns

On HitFix’s “Best TV Shows of 2015” list, I made Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee my No. 2 pick. So I’m thrilled Jerry Seinfeld’s web series is coming back early. Season 7 (already?) premieres Dec. 30 on Crackle, a service that crosses the border and is free. Guests include Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan and stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco.

There’s one special guest kicking off the season: president Barack Obama. How does he qualify? Well, he’s killed at those White House Correspondent’s dinners. Looks like he gets to ride in a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe.

For next season, now that Seinfeld has opened the door to world leaders, he should head to Ottawa and visit a Tim Horton’s with prime minister Justin Trudeau. They could take the PM’s ride: a 1957 silver convertible Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster formerly owned by Justin’s flashy dad, Pierre.
