The Seinfeld Easter Egg Hidden in This Week's Mr. Robot Episode
If we know one thing about Joey Bada$$'s new Mr. Robot character, it's that Leon sure watches a lot of Seinfeld.
And when Elliot experiences his major malfunction during this week's episode "eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd," we can't decipher what Leon is saying backwards -- but, knowing Leon, it's safe to assume Seinfeld is involved.
For fans watching "eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd" with closed captioning last night, Leon's words appeared on the screen backwards. However, if you freeze the frames, you can figure out what he's talking about. (Note: We put the frames in reverse order, so it makes sense.)
"The dopest has got to be..."
"...'The Betrayal.' They play the whole episode backwards..."
"...with the logo and everything and..."
"...George be wearing Timbaland boots."
Indeed George Costanza did wear Timberland boots for the entire episode of "The Betrayal" because he claimed they made him taller! Watch the clip of Leon recapping Seinfeld backwards here.
