My wife and I were at a celebrity fundraising comedy event a couple of weekends ago and Jeff Garlin (Larry David's friend & producer of Curb Your Enthusiasm) came up on stage. He started talking about how he just bought a brand new car and how ridiculously difficult it is to use the technology that comes with it. My wife and I looked at eachother with this smile, wondering if it's the XTS. Next thing you know, he says "Yeah, I just bought the new Cadillac XTS...". His jokes were about how he's taking it upon himself alone to get rich Jews to drive Cadillacs again, how the voice command kept saying a different name than the person he wanted to call, for example "do you want to call Stan?" when he would tell it to call Stew... and he didn't know a Stan and kept saying, NO - STEW!, but finally gave in and said "fine, Stan".... and called some random guy that didn't know him and he didn't know (and wasn't in his contacts) and had a conversation with him trying to figure out if he knows him, and how he feels bad for the older folks who buy this car because they won't be able to figure out the technology. I was nodding my head in agreement during that whole skit!

That's pretty funny. I love Curb your Enthusiasm , brilliant show. What's needed is for Larry David to stop driving that POS Prius that he always drives on the show and get into the new ELR. Actually, I bet he will. If your a fan of Seinfeld ( Larry David creation with Jerry ) you may recall he had an entire episode devoted to buying his Father a brand new Cadillac. The whole retirement community turned on Jerry's father because they thought he was stealing money from the dues to buy the Cadillac. Great episode.

Jeff's great and that's a very funny bit. Thanks for sharing :).

I liked the line from that episode where Jerry's father stated that the Cadillac had the Northstar system and he didn't think he ever used it.
