Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
Jul 7, 2012
In April 2009 I posted the first episode of Carpool on YouTube. In March of that year I had posted a few episodes on iTunes which is where the majority of the downloads/views took place. Since then I've made over 100 episodes with a total combined download count of 6.6 million.
Hopefully I will make some more later this year.
So yesterday my tweet stream turned into a torrent as people asked me if I'd seen news of Jerry Seinfeld's new series 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.'
I checked it out and while it's clearly exactly the same idea, shot in an almost identical way, it's hard to suggest it's a rip off.
That would assume that Mr Seinfeld or his associates had seen Carpool and thought, 'Hey! We could do that!'
It's just that Jerry has a lot of cars, he likes driving, he's a comedian, new cameras allow you to shoot in a car, he knows lots of comedians, he's making a show. 'Hey, that's a great idea Jerry!'
It's fine, what am I going to do about it? What can I do about it?
The world loves to be deceived.
