We Have Jason Alexander To Thank (Blame?) For Taylor Swift

Christmas tree ornament collector Taylor Swift was already a country star, thanks to the success of her first single “Tim McGraw,” when Seinfeld‘s Jason Alexander cast her as a backup dancer in Brad Paisley’s “Online” music video in 2007. (Is there an aqua iBook? Oh yeah.) But he’s still taking credit for her entire career because once a Costanza, always a Costanza.

Alexander told TMZ, “Not only am I a Swift fan, I put her in her first video,” before jokingly adding, “Yeah, it’s all me,” in reference to her popularity. T-Bone, T-Swift, it all makes sense now.
