Thanks to Hulu's purchase of the entire Seinfeld series, it seems like everything's been coming up Jerry lately, from the comedian's trip to get coffee with President Obama or just local Festivus parties. Publix is the latest company to jump on the Trend About Nothing, by bringing in the actor who portrayed the Soup Nazi, Larry Thomas, to Kissimmee and Publix branches on Thursday, Feb. 4. Thomas will be ladling out samples of soups from The Original Soupman, the company that launched out of Soup Nazi inspiration Al Yeganeh's Soup Kitchen International restaurant in NYC. No announcement has been made yet about which specific Publix outlets will be treated, but we'll let you know if we hear anything.
