An ad spot for a new episode of Jerry Seinfeld‘s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee aired during FOX’s Super Bowl halftime coverage last night, which reunited in-character cast members from the hit sitcom Seinfeld. The spot featured the comedian’s eponymous Seinfeld character along with Jason Alexander’s George Costanza together again at their old stomping grounds, Tom’s Restaurant in New York City, marking the first time the characters have been on screen together in 16 years.

Jerry Seinfeld‘s brilliant web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is one of those addictive pleasures that leaves you entertained and occasionally a bit smarter than before you first started watching. I prefer it to most comedy shows on television because its simple premise, spelled out in the title, is a gateway into a world of warm hilarity and intelligent and heartfelt conversations that reveal facets of the personalities involved you couldn’t find in their performances on film, TV, and the stand-up comedy arena.
The series, sponsored by Acura, recently returned for its third season with Louis C.K. as Seinfeld’s guest. This week, the acerbic comic giant takes out for a hot shot of exquisite java a comedian beloved by geeks the world over: Patton Oswalt. True to form, the two funnymen take off for their destination in a 1981 DMC DeLorean, the car that took Michael J. Fox Back to the Future in three beloved sci-fi comic adventures spanning 1985-1990.
