It has been almost 20 years since Seinfeld went off the air. The stars have gone on to varying levels of success or infamy during that time, but folks still love the show. It's constantly running in syndication, generating jillions of dollars in revenue. It's perfectly normal to wonder what the gang would be up to today, right?
You've probably seen the Modern Seinfeld Twitter account featured on lots of websites and blogs. Its creator manages to come up with a 21st century spin on the old familiar dynamic:
Kramer is addicted to Candy Crush, but suspects one of the levels is impossible to beat. "They're modern day carnies, Jerry! It's a con!"— Modern Seinfeld (@SeinfeldToday) July 28, 2013
George goes to war with an evil barista who writes embarrassing things on George's cup instead of his name.— Modern Seinfeld (@SeinfeldToday) February 27, 2015

George rejects a Tinder girl when all her photos feature multiple girls. E:”What if she’s the pretty one?” G:“How naive can you be, Elaine?"— Modern Seinfeld (@SeinfeldToday) January 7, 2015
Jerry & George compete to pick up the same woman on a plane. When Jerry sneezes, George jokes about Ebola & gets them both quarantined.— Modern Seinfeld (@SeinfeldToday) October 16, 2014
If you're one of the people chomping at the bit for an actual new episode, you're still going to have to wait. There is, however, an incredible simulation. A sketch group (I'm assuming it's the Bellvue Upright Citizens Brigade, based on the YouTube account) have created a new episode of Seinfeld featuring some pretty amazing impersonations. It has everything you would want from the show: Self absorbed behavior, Kramer business ideas, observational humor, and zombies. IT'S GOT EVERYTHING, JERRY!
Watch it sooner than later. Who knows how long it will be up once the lawyers get involved?
