The on-again-off-again relationship between George Costanza and Susan Ross was certainly one of its strongest storylines in all of its impeccable nine seasons on NBC.

Now, Seinfeld2000, one of several Twitter accounts dedicated to envisioning the would-be exploits of George, Jerry, Elaine, and Kramer in the present day, has released a music video capturing scenes from George's disastrous relationship -- from Susan's unceremonious firing at NBC (because of George), to her brief foray into lesbianism (almost certainly because of George), to her fatal poisoning from cheap envelope glue (definitely because of George) -- set to Arcade Fire's new single, "Here Comes the Night Time."

The video perfectly synches "Reflektor's" second single with the whole span of George's ill-fated narrative, set to subtitles interpreting the action. Who would have guessed that the vocals of Win Butler intertwined with Bosco, marble ryes, prenups, and the phrase "You could have done a lot better than that guy!" could rival the classic stoner mashup of "The Wizard of Oz" and Pink Floyd's "The Wall."
