Soulful Materialism: Jerry Seinfeld's Clio Acceptance Speech

"Clean" Graffiti by Moose x Nissan

After receiving the Clio, Jerry Seinfeld launched into a deadpan speech that ripped apart the advertising industry that bestowed the award on him.

It may have been his deadpan delivery that confused the audience, but there is clearly a hint of truth in what Seinfeld is saying. An outright speech denouncing the industry would have been a foolish move (after all, he does star in commercials, hence the Clio). But offering a speech in this disguising manner allows him to simultaneously criticize the industry while keen observers raise an eyebrow to the kernel of his argument. Give it a listen.
