Seinfeld Campus Bus Tour to visit campus October 29


A full decade after Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer ended their run on of the most successful shows in television history, Seinfeld is back- in the form of 60-foot long bio-diesel fueled bus. As part of its nationwide trek, the Seinfeld Campus Tour is coming to Case Western Reserve University Wednesday, October 29.

The Emmy-winning show that made catchphrases like "Yada yada yada" and "No soup for you!" part of the American lexicon is logging over 10,000 miles this fall to target the next generation of Seinfeld fans. Sony Pictures Television is targeting college campuses and retail outlets in the top 50 metropolitan markets, hoping to capitalize on the show's continued popularity among the 18-49 demographic.

Inside the bus, fans can experience a mini-museum of Seinfeld memorabilia, including original costumes and props like the Jerry's puffy shirt, the "manzier/bro" and "Fusilli Jerry" among others. Located in the middle of the bus, TV screens will play iconic moments and episodes from the show's nine-season run.

There are also bins full of Seinfeld foods, like Junior Mints, Twix, Diet Snapple and black and white cookies, plus Kramer's Yogurt Bar featuring non-fat frozen yogurt.

Additionally, outside the bus, attendees can participate in games like Monk's Diner Plate Toss and the Marine Biologist Hole-in-One contest for chances to win prizes.

In conjunction with DoSomething.org, the Seinfeld Campus Tour will collect canned foods to be delivered to foodbanks.

The tour buses will be located at Van Horn Field (2128 Adelbert Road), in front of the Veale Center, from 10 a.m-4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in Lot 53.
