Jerry Seinfeld's 1971 Daytona Ferrari Breakdown Is No Clowning Matter

If only Starbucks had roadside assistance: Amy and Jerry stuck on the side of the road. "Oh Ferrari, so sorry."
In his web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld is joined by friends for a cup of coffee and a drive in a classic car, sharing stories all along the way. In the episode featuring Amy Schumer, the 1971 Daytona Ferrari they are driving breaks down. As they linger off the West Side Highway we hear "Recitar! Mentre preso dal delirio...." which is the beginning of "Vesti la giubba" from Leoncavallo's opera I Pagliacci. Mr. Seinfeld was also caught in the same predicament of not knowing whether he was a man or a clown. See the video of how it all goes down, and a clip of Plácido Domingo singing the famous aria, after the jump. This isn't the first time opera has dropped by the coffee shop. In season four, Jerry takes Robert Klein out and the latter breaks into a bit about being an opera pimp looking for his commission on the latest Così fan tutte performances.
