A number of big names and websites are taking part in the Festivus fun, celebrating the holiday for the rest of us. READ FULL STORY

Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and other 'Seinfeld' folk are reuniting for... something -- VIDEO

Curiouser and curiouser!

When the image above hit the Internet — and Jerry Seinfeld himself alluded to a “big, huge, gigantic” project he recently wrote with Larry David in his January 6 Reddit AMA — the rumor mill began to churn wildly. Clearly, he and Jason Alexander were reuniting at Manhattan’s Tom’s Diner for a Seinfeld-themed Super Bowl commercial. Or maybe an episode of Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” though that wouldn’t necessarily explain the whole Larry David angle.

The truth? Seinfeld says there is some sort of Seinfeld reunion on the horizon… though he denies it’s either a big game ad or a webisode.

“It’s neither,” he told the hosts of a local New York radio show Thursday — before adding a mysterious addendum: “But, it is not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.”

Oh, okay, that clears everything up!

Following his barely there explanation, Seinfeld’s interviewers did get him to spill a few more tiny details about the project. So here’s what we do know: It’s some sort of “shortish-form,” “one-and-done” video. Alexander is, indeed, playing George Costanza. Filming took place in more than one location, though not at Seinfeld’s Upper West Side apartment. Other Seinfeld characters are involved, as is Larry David, though David doesn’t appear on film. And Seinfeld assures that we’ll get to see the result “very, very soon.”

Jason Alexander serves up lattes for Nickelback

Before he started playing bass for Nickelback, Mike Kroeger worked at Starbucks, a gig that supposedly inspired the band’s name. (As in, “Here’s your nickel back.”) Now, the band’s reliving those golden years with the video for “Trying Not To Love You,” which features such dream-of-the-’90s hallmarks as “half-caff mocha-soy” drinks, soul patches, Baywatch nostalgia, and a starring role from Seinfeld‘s Jason Alexander, a man who once proclaimed that “coffee’s not coffee, coffee is sex!” He takes that rule a little too seriously in this clip, where he plays a schlubby barista who’s trying to win over former mouth-to-mouth-resuscitation-loving lifeguard Brooke Burns by drawing hearts in her cappuccino. (Does Nickelback own a special TV that plays nothing except old Baywatch episodes? See also: “Gotta Get Me Some,” where Chad Kroeger compares some poor girl to “a scene from a Baywatch rerun.”) First, though, he has to compete with some fedora-wearing latte artist (also played by Alexander) who can sculpt foam until it resembles the members of Nickelback. Which is… supposed to be hot? Or at least funny? Hmmm. You can watch the video below and judge for yourself. But when forced to choose between different versions of Jason “Video Vixen” Alexander, I still prefer this guy.
