Jerry Seinfeld has gathered up more than 1,000 clips of his comedy for the new JerrySeinfeld.comsite he’s launching tomorrow (Friday)-- but he only intends to release three of them a day.
He tells the NY Times, “I don’t want everything. Burger King now has a burger where you decide how many patties. How disgusting is that? That’s the problem right there. That’s the cultural moment that I am repudiating.”
Seinfeld says he’s launching the site because, at 57, he’s been contemplating his legacy.
He says, “I really thought, ‘Where’s my stuff going to be when I’m dead?’”
Sure, most of it is online illegally, but “Who can go through the ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ catacombs of YouTube? It’s completely random.”
He also added that he couldn’t ever imagine approaching a TV executive again.
“If I have this idea for a TV show, I can just put it up on the Internet.”
