Jerry Seinfeld's web-series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" follows a pretty simple formula: he borrows a fancy car, calls up another comedian friend, and they drive to get coffee. In the latest episode, that formula was altered a bit. Seinfeld picked up Patton Oswalt in a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 (yes, the car from Back to the Future), but they didn't make it very far before the not-so-great car crapped out on them.

The show then became a commercial for Uber, the ride sharing app that allows you to find a driver nearby to give you a lift (not to be confused with Lyft). Getting a lift still technically counts as them being "In Cars" and they got their coffee, so it all worked out.
