Jerry Seinfeld looks serious in a business-ready costume on the set of his Pop-Tarts origin film Unfrosted in Los Angeles

He’s made Pop-Tarts a regular part of his stand-up shows and specials in recent years.

And Jerry Seinfeld was seen bringing his obsession to life on Tuesday when he filmed a scene from his new Pop-Tarts–themed movie Unfrosted in Los Angeles.

The 68-year-old comedian and actor had on a business casual costume for the outdoor shoot next to a garbage truck.

Few details have been announced about the film, though it’s reportedly inspired by the invention of the sugary breakfast treat and Seinfeld’s recurring bit.

In a 2012 interview with the New York Times, the comedian described the painstaking process of crating his Pop-Tart bit, which he said took years to perfect.

On Tuesday, Seinfeld was spotted in a white dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up, along with a set of gray trousers that were baggy in the legs.

He added the barest hint of color to the corporate look with a slim gray–blue striped tie, and he blocked out the sun with a cool set of squarish military-style aviator sunglasses.

The Bee Movie star was seen surrounded by masked film crew members who alternated holding up umbrellas to keep him out of the sun.

The pavement had been sprayed with water, and the crew members were gathered around a large garbage truck with a dirty red dumpster.

Jerry was presumably starring in the scene, as he wasn’t wearing a mask like the rest of the crew, but he’s also directing and co-writing the film with Spike Feresten — a writer on the Seinfeld series and Bee Movie — and the comedian Barry Marder, who also co-wrote Bee Movie with Seinfeld.

Despite the high-pressure environment of a film set, the stand-up star could be seen beaming ear-to-ear.

Filming on the movie, which is being made for Netflix, commenced last month in California.

Back in February, the streamer surpassed major studios including Disney and Warner Bros. to earn $60 million in tax credits from the state, which will be split among Unfrosted and three other film projects.

‘We are so happy to get the California tax credit which enables us to make our whole movie there,’ said Seinfeld at the time, according to Variety. ‘Having made all of the Seinfeld series in LA, I very much wanted to come back and shoot there again. On behalf of everyone working on the movie, we really appreciate the great welcome.’

The comedian has previously built up his relationship with Netflix by releasing multiple stand-up specials on the platform, as well as his comic interview series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.

The steamer also currently has his eponymous sitcom available on its platform in the US.
