Jerry Seinfeld might’ve met his match when he invited Miranda from YouTube’s Miranda Sings to go get some Thanksgiving breakfast in his 1960 Austin-Healey Sprite. What unfolds is an odd trip through stuffy LA traffic that leads to awkward meal conversation, shopping at Hot Topic, and creepy kindness. At least that’s how it appears from Miranda’s point of view.
I was confused by who Miranda Sings was from way when the trailer for this season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was released. I hadn’t heard of her, so I peeked around and found the YouTube channel. She’s the creation of comedian Colleen Ballinger and seems to take inspiration from the likes of Andy Kaufman, which is not a bad thing. She amassed nearly 2.5 million subscribers on the Miranda Sings channel and over 1 million on her own. That’s something.
Seinfeld also joined Miranda on her own YouTube video that covers what it takes to be famous, the sort of thing that Jerry Seinfeld knows nothing about. He gets a proper lesson on why Seinfeld is a failure because it isn’t on the air any more and that some folks can’t just turn off the funny when it flows out of them.
I thought it was all a pretty fun experience in the end, even if I think I’d lose my mind having to watch her YouTube channel everyday. If you don’t want to watch the yellow cut, and want a little behind the scenes peek at what goes into Miranda Sings, check out the full episode over here.
