Jerry Seinfeld’s “Unfrosted” Film and the Pop Tart Phenomenon


Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up routine often delves into the quirks of everyday life, including his famous joke about “what’s up with Pop Tarts?” It’s classic Seinfeld—spotting the absurdities in mundane cultural phenomena and turning them into comedy gold. In his latest venture, the Netflix film “Unfrosted,” Seinfeld takes a deeper dive into the peculiar allure of Pop Tarts.

The premise of “Unfrosted” revolves around the absurdity of Pop Tarts—their lack of freshness, limited variety compared to breakfast cereals, yet inexplicable popularity. Jerry Seinfeld, serving as star, creator, and director, assembles an impressive ensemble cast including Melissa McCarthy, Bill Burr, and Hugh Grant, to name a few.

However, amidst the excitement for “Unfrosted,” there’s one glaring gripe: Amy Schumer’s involvement. While the film promises a comedic exploration of breakfast and capitalism in the 1960s, Schumer’s inclusion leaves some skeptics unimpressed. Critics question her comedic prowess and suitability for the role, citing her past performances in shows like “Only Murders In The Building.”

Despite this minor setback, “Unfrosted” appears poised to deliver a humorous take on how a seemingly mediocre and bland food item like the Pop Tart became a cultural phenomenon. Much like the biggest pop artists, the Pop Tart’s success feels oddly fitting in its mediocrity.

In essence, “Unfrosted” promises to be an entertaining exploration of the absurdity and unexpected success stories lurking in everyday life—just like Seinfeld’s iconic stand-up routines.
