Man of Steel, Comedian of Gortex

American Express has paired Seinfeld with Superman for a series of web commercials. The only available full-length episode at this time, “Uniform”, features Superman hooking up Jerry’s DVD player. Funny stuff.

  1. Is it me, or does Superman sounds a lot like fellow Seinfeldian — David Puddy, played by Patrick Warburton, who also did the title role for the short-lived “The Tick” live-action series??

    Nonetheless, it’s hilarious!

  2. I don’t think its Warburton, but it sorta sounded like him. Did you play the “Yes, Wyoming” sing along? Just plain great. They did a bang up job on this campaign, and I want to see the next episode.

  3. You know, there were times when I thought it isn’t Puddy, but other times when I’m sure it is him. I wish I get some confirmation.

  4. I think it’s Warburton, at least based on this information from the Game Over character bio site.

    Game Over

    “Patrick Warburton stars as the voice of Rip Smashenburn, a hotshot Grand Prix racecar driver who rides and wrecks daily, in UPN?s new CGI-animated comedy GAME OVER.”

    “He has also done commercial spots for American Express (as the voice of “Superman”), Cadillac and M&Ms.”
