Sometimes, even Superman needs saving (1998)

Jerry Seinfeld channeled his inner geek in this commercial for American Express in 1998, back when Seinfeld had plenty of hair.

It ain't exactly Metropolis, but rather, New York, where Seinfeld is strolling with no less than Superman (voice of Patrick Warburton), though we question why they didn't call in Teri Hatcher (ex-Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) to reprise as Lois Lane for this bit.

I don't think Seinfeld intended to embarrass his idol like that, but this does leave Superman feeling, as a certain student of his might put it, spacey.
