Try not to drop your hot coffee in excitement, Seinfeld fans, but we’ve got some big news.

Not only is Jerry Seinfeld‘s cult hit web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee returning for its seventh season a whole week early, the premiere episode will feature none other than President Obama himself.

The pair filmed the surprise segment, which will premiere on Crackle and the show’s website on Wednesday, Dec. 30 at 9:30 p.m., earlier this month in Washington D.C.

Though the trailer doesn’t reveal much about what the pair discussed — or, sadly, which of the capital’s coffee joints they visited — it does show Seinfeld pulling up outside the White House in a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe in order to pick up the President.

“Growing up in the ’60s my kid dream was always to be an astronaut. Doing a comedy show with President Obama in and around the White House felt like going into space. ‘How did I get here?’ ‘Is this really happening?'” Seinfeld said about his experience spending the day with Obama.

“The President’s humor and generosity are the only reasons this was even possible. He was so easy and fun to be with. Being President and just a cool guy to hang out with at the same time made the experience my own personal moonwalk. It was an unforgettable day.”

Of course, President Obama isn’t the only unforgettable guest joining Seinfeld for a quick coffee run: the new season will feature conversations with comedy legends like Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan and Sebastian Maniscalco.

All of which means that finally, finally we’ll get the answer to the buring question on everyone’s minds: How many sugars does the President take in his coffee?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

And Jerry Seinfeld jumps the shark…

Total JOKE of a President.

kelli on

I almost don’t care who he even has on as a guest, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is my favorite thing to happen to the internet, and I’m so glad a new season is starting. I can’t wait!

Clay on

So, Obama has now failed at being president and being a comedian.

J on

Love Obama, love Jerry and I love this show. Can’t wait to see this episode!

v_dodds on

I agree w/you Jon. Love Obama, Seinfeld and the show.

Lyn on

Sienfeld is the comedian. Obama is the joke. No one is laughing.

DT on

He doesn’t take any stinking sugar in his coffee

Karen on

Of course because filming comedy shows is what is important right now in America. He should have been an actor because he seems more concerned with being on various TV shows than doing something about illegal immigration, health care collapse, Isis, disabled vets, etc.. I could go on and on but I guess no one really cares as long as he is “cool.”

How sad that our sitting president has all the time in the world to appear on “reality ” television instead of doing his job.

Lame, lame duck on

He may as well ride around with Jerry, it’s not like he’s doing anything else.

Dayle on

Ugh! I really hate it when the president NEEDS to be “famous!” It just cheapens the position. Let’s worry more about IsIs and less about movie stars!

Stag on

Dayle You hit right on it! the White House used to be the White House. Now I think we should call it “The Fun House”

Vamanos on

Wow. I will watch that one.

NoDoubt! on

And the republicans are the rich group and have all the money…. democrats = hypocrites. HOLLYWOOD anyone?

Jeff W on

Good grief lighten up people. We call him aloof and out of touch, then can’t abide it when he takes a coffee break with Seinfeld to show he’s just a one pant leg at a time kind of guy like everyone else. This was really well done and would have been just as much fun if it had been George W having a cuppa with Jerry.
