Arcade Fire’s “Here Comes the Night Time” + George Costanza = Yes Please

Two biographical points: back when I was a teenager a wee bit over a decade ago (wait that can’t be right), I applied a perhaps unfair litmus test to new acquaintances. Specifically, were you a Friends person, or were you a Seinfeld person? If you were a Friends person, I would judge you.
Second, Arcade Fire’s Reflektor has been haunting my soul for weeks; it, and especially the second disc, is what happens when the 1970s fall into a pot of internet, boil to a smoke point alongside an old XXX neon sign, and after being poured onto a chilled concrete slab get smashed into a thousand pieces by a hammer made from David Bowie’s face. Basically, you should go listen to Reflektor; Porno is a good place to start (don’t worry it’s SFW, you babies).
Anyway the above mashup is the least likely thing to ever happen and also exactly right. Happy 25 shopping days till Christmas everybody!
