‘Seinfeld’ Fan Copy Edits Subway Posters

Written by Pat's Papers | Tuesday, 29 June 2010 3:14 PM


One of the joys of living in New York is seeing the little details you’ve memorized from “Seinfeld” slip into your day-to-day life. My first New York City apartment, like Jerry’s, was 5A. And the real Kenny Rogers Roasters store with the bright neon sign was at the end of our block. So I had to chuckle when I read on the Huffington Post this morning that one “superfan” took a Sharpie to several “Seinfeld” posters hanging in the subway. The posters display the show’s most overused catchphrases.

Exercising the best kind of vandalism, the masked copywriter added some more obscure quotes to the posters. The Huffington Post has a photo of the original poster I spotted this morning on the train updated with the famous Elaine quote, “Fake…fake…fake…fake.”  Remember that episode? According to Elaine, I’d have no way of knowing whether that’s another of my personal Seinfeld experiences.

Go to the Huffington Post to see photos of all the edited posters or click here for a ridiculously comprehensive list (organized by episode) from Wikiquotes.
