The original Jerry Seinfeld web series is well into its fourth season on Crackle where he and his guests drive around in fancy cars and talk intimately about comedy and their careers while sharing a cup of joe together. It’s a well-oiled machine, even when the guest isn’t necessarily a comedian, but it can also be a bit absurd at times.
McHale, who already perfectly skewered True Detective on The Soup, didn’t want to stick to the caffeinated stuff in his own CICGC parody. But instead of sticking to the caffeinated stuff, he and guest Tony Hale went with something a little more jolting—and illegal.
It rings just like a regular episode of CICGC from the old car to the focus on Hale’s work on Arrested Development and Veep with lots of talk about cocaine, but it quickly escalates into a drug deal gone wrong. But a host has to do his job. He’s just along for the ride.
