Seinfeld used a Mac

Eagle-eyed Christina Warren spotted a huge flaw in Hulu’s recreation of Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment from “Seinfeld,” created to promote the sitcom’s arrival as a Hulu exclusive:

Hulu recreated nearly every aspect of the Season 8-era Seinfeld apartment with great attention to detail. Except for one thing. They gave Jerry an old PC. In the words of Cosmo Kramer, “Oh, come on!”

After Carrie Bradshaw, Jerry Seinfeld might be the most visible Mac user in 1990s television. Over the course of Seinfeld’s 9 seasons, Jerry’s apartment frequently showed off various models of the Macintosh. Everything from the Mac SE 30 (or was it a Mac Classic), to a PowerBook, to the 20th anniversary Macintosh were featured on the show.

Oh, Hulu. For shame.
