Influx of ‘Seinfeld’ Nostalgia Continues With Soup Nazi Food Truck
Either it’s some anniversary, there’s something in the water or this is all part of viral marketing for Jerry Seinfeld’s new web series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, but it seems like there’s been a bit more Seinfeld nostalgia than usual recently. Last week, the New Yorker‘s caption contest featured a cartoon the gang attempted to caption in a late-season episode (the pig at the complaint department, whose wife Kramer believes is "a slut."). Now, fthe show is rolling out its own food truck, and there will (groan) be soup for you, so long as you don’t enrage Larry Thomas himself.
The No Soup For You! food truck is an official Seinfeld-related promotional vehicle touring seven cities across the country over the next couple of weeks, with the next appearance at Chicago’s North Avenue Beach this Friday. In addition to the opportunity to meet original Soup Nazi Larry Thomas, the truck will be doling out "iconic Seinfeld food," which according to reports from the truck’s Huntington Beach stop, consists of the Soup Nazi’s mulligatawny, Twix, Junior Mints, muffin tops, Snapple and black and white cookies. The idea of eating soup on a beach doesn’t sound particularly appetizing, but hey Seinfeld fans, enjoy this influx of fanservice activities while you can, we guess.
Is it time to watch the Soup Nazi in action? Yes, I think it is.
