"Here at Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, we have noticed that we have, shall we say, influenced a number of other shows," Seinfeld says in the latest promo for his Netflix series. He then brings up a number of fake and real shows and segments, including "Carpool Karaoke." "We are proud that others have taken notice of our style and have been inspired by it," says Seinfeld. "The only comment we would like to make is, 'If you're gonna knock us off, get it right.'" The thing is Corden based "Carpool Karaoke" off of a March 2011 Red Nose Day segment in which his Gavin & Stacey character Smithy sings with George Michael while driving him around. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee didn't premiere until 16 months later, in July 2012.
