Video: If Seinfeld Were a Show About True Nothingness

People like to joke that Seinfeld was a show about "nothing," but what if it were about really nothing? What if it were about nothingness? What if it were about the void that comes when the laughter stops? "Nothing" is a short video made by LJ Frezza. He describes it as such, "Scenes from Seinfeld (1989-1998) where nothing happens. A supercut of empty shots. A New York without people." If you can get past all the slap bass at the top, you'll be confronted with a beautifully bleak existential portrait. If you get too bummed, just imagine Kramer popping through the door at any moment and imagine yourself as a member of the studio audience always ready to cheer when he does.
