International Yada, Yada, Yada Day

International Yada, Yada, Yada Day

You’re probably one of the many millions of people who have watched Seinfeld every day. If so, you won’t have any trouble guessing what the day is all about. You will be amazed at the influence the show had on generations of people around the world, even if you’re not. This phrase, like everything else the show touched, was instantly a hit in pop culture. So what if “yada yada yada” basically just means “bla bla bla”? Seinfeld is known for its unique nietzsche-esque approach towards every aspect of life. So why shouldn’t one of the most iconic catchphrases from the show make sense?

For years, the expression “yada-yada-yada‚Äù has been used to skip over irrelevant and uninteresting details. The phrase was popularly used by Lenny Bruce, a well-known comedian, on numerous occasions. There are also many records that it was used in 1940s vaudeville. It was not until the 1990s that the phrase “yada, yada, yada!” became a popular catchphrase. In fact, the episode 153 of Seinfeld was called “The Yada Yada”. This episode examined how the misuse of the phrase can lead to problems. For example, George’s new girlfriend, who is a kleptomaniac and steals to make his time, or Jerry’s new girlfriend, who is racist and antisemitic. Hilarity ensues as the unwitting men discover what kind of people their relationships have been with. The Paley Center for media named “Yada Yada Yada”, the No. 1 phrase in 2009. The “TV’s 50 Funniest Phrases” list included the #1 funny phrase, along with many other Seinfeld catchphrases.

What should you do to celebrate International Yada Yada Yada Day You could just say yada, yada, yada, and then drink an ice-cold beer. But, if you want to get more concrete ideas, why don’t you rewatch the Seinfeld episode? It’s time to watch it if you haven’t already! Seinfeld is consistently ranked as one of the top sitcoms in many countries, if it not the very best, and that’s a good thing. If you like sarcasm, and think it’s ironic that humans spend so much time trying to achieve largely meaningless goals, Seinfeld’s misanthropic cast of misfits will bring you endless laughs. Seinfeld is also a fascinating study in the evolution of television. The show broke many conventions at the time and dealt with sensitive subjects that other shows wouldn’t dare to touch, which can be a lesson for viewers. Seinfeld is distinguished by its constant nihilistic nature, which makes it stand out from other TV shows. The characters are subject to a “no hugging and no learning” rule, so they don’t develop like other characters on TV.

International Yada Yada Yada Day, as the name suggests, is sure to be a fun, educational, and enjoyable day.
