Video: Seven and Seinfeld mashup is a joy to behold

Eric Lalor

Laughter tracks are a hindrance to real comedy they said. They are not a hindrance when added to serious pieces like the 1995 masterpiece, Seven.

You know the one. The dark, brooding thriller with Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow and a very creepy, but brilliant Kevin Spacey.

Well, add a laughter track from cult US comedy Seinfeld and you have yourself a beautifully constructed mash up which works so well. What was once a sinister, tension fuelled crime drama is now breezy and uplifting. It’s Seven Up if you will…….
