Jerry Seinfeld has made a fortune off of his fastidious germaphobic tendencies. They were on full display last night when pop singer Kesha spotted Seinfeld on the David Lynch Foundation’s National Night of Laughter and Song benefit red carpet.
She introduced herself to Jerry and asked if she could give him a hug.
“No thanks,” quickly replied Seinfeld as he held his hand out to prevent her from going in. He repeated the denials several more times before Kesha finally gave up on the cringe-worthy attempt. Jerry’s not the hug it out type.
The rejection scene feels like a scene from an actual episode of Seinfeld. Inevitably, Jerry will find himself without his credential and need Kesha to confirm his identity to get inside in time for his set. Kesha replies mockingly, “No thanks.” And, scene.
This clip is classic. Watch ‘The Hug’:
