Watch: ‘Pedestrians In Bars Eating Toffee,’ a parody of Seinfeld’s web series


From the music to the editing to the way the host paces himself and interrupts his guests, “Pedestrians In Bars Eating Toffee” (featured on CollegeHumor and Laughing Squid) is very much a spot-on spoof of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

Oh, and this parody, featuring Gabe Oppenheim and Samuel Goldberg, also has that underlying New York Jew-y thing going on.

Our favorite moment: Mid-toffee munching, Jerry stand-in Gabe begins flossing. Samuel, this episode’s guest, doesn’t like flossing. It makes his gums bleed.

“What kind of torturous exercise do you think flossing is?” Gabe asks, after pointing out that gums bleed when they are unhealthy, not because flossing is bad.

“I’m Jewish.” Samuel offers up as a response.
