This is from the episode The Slicer of the show Seinfeld.
Elaine keeps complaining about her neighbor whose apartment always smells like potatoes. In the end of the episode Kramer accidentally falls on that neighbor's door and discovers that there are actually lot of potatoes inside that apartment. Following is the scene.
Now what that man was doing with so many potatoes can be inexplicable considering that Seinfeld show is full of such quirky jokes and incidents.
But I somehow think there is some stereotypical angle to it because that man had very peculiar accent. I found a YouTube comment which says
based on his accent, maybe he has a vodka brewery ¯\(ツ)/¯
- What was the joke/angle behind this scene (if at all there was any)? Was it ever explained by anyone in DVD commentary or anywhere else?
- If not, possibly which country/region that man's accent represent? What is the possible connection between people with that accent and the vodka brewery as the YouTube comment says?
