Jerry Seinfeld Grabs Coffee with Ellen DeGeneres in a 1977 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser
Season 10 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is officially out on Netflix, and one of the most highly anticipated guests is none other than Ellen DeGeneres. Of course, in true Comedians in Cars fashion, Jerry Seinfeld had to pick out a car that fits Ellen’s personality, so he opted for a 1977 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser in Mustard Yellow.
Jerry highlights the history of the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser, pointing out that it looks more like a toy than a traditional car. Its big wheels and high-cut fenders make the Land Cruiser perfect for off-roading. Jerry said the Land Cruiser’s “approachable no nonsense vibe reminded me of my very special guest this week, Ms. Ellen Degeneres, who is also so friendly and accessible and real and fun to be with.”

The two comedians sat down inside the cabin of the Land Cruiser and, well, cruised through town chatting about Ellen’s talk show, how she became a comedian, and her first appearance on Johnny Carson’s show before arriving at a local coffee shop.
“I’ve never seen anyone drink so much coffee in my entire life,” Ellen told Jerry. “It’s too much.”
Of course, an episode with Ellen couldn’t end without a little prank. Jerry got back in the Land Cruiser to discover his keys were missing. He searched high and low for the keys, even calling his producers over to the car, only to find out that Ellen had hidden them under her seat. “I told you you shouldn’t leave the keys in the car,” Ellen scolded him. “It was to teach you a lesson,” she said as she pulled the keys out from under the seat. “I could’ve let that go longer.”
“I don’t think it was going any place funny,” said Jerry.
