In many ways, the characters on Seinfeld already were hipsters. They were certainly self-absorbed enough and spent most of their time focused on superficial things. Now, a user who goes by “Dream Reamer” on Twitter has reimagined the famous four as modern-day hipsters, and the results are priceless.
Twitter was cracking up over the stylish makeover.
God they look like they're about to go in together on a microbrewery— Wicked (@Wickedscosplay) March 6, 2018

Wow the AU where Sienfield took place in Seattle is really dank.— Bren Queer Viking Him/them/dude (@Coppercredit) March 6, 2018
Although someone noted that George was already halfway there on certain episodes.

That didn’t stop this guy from creating yet another alternate version.
It’s also worth noting that people were actually really digging Elaine’s new look.

God Elaine still looks hot— Jonny Napalm (@JeffStone1) March 6, 2018
Came to make fun of it and then realized Elaine looks amazing. Not sure what to do now.— The Lamityville Horror: Awake at 5AM!! (@AnxiousPenman) March 6, 2018
Of course, it’s the not the first time we’ve seen a fan-created Seinfeld universe. The infamous 9/11 script is one of the most brilliant pieces of writing that will never air on television (although people have performed it live), and Twitter accounts like Seinfeld 2000 and Modern Seinfeld keep the characters alive online.
And, as always, there are talks of a reunion. This time, it’s on the heels of Julia Louis-Dreyfus recovering from breast cancer and heading into her seventh and final season of the critically-acclaimed TV show Veep. Whether or not a reunion actually happens this time is anyone’s guess, but if it does, the show’s producers would be wise to consider giving Elaine that asymmetrical haircut and a nose ring. Her fans would love it.
