New York Fashion Week - a flurry of expensive clothes, flashy celebrities, and forced conversations - is probably the last place we'd think to find Larry David. You know, the guy who rejoiced at being uninvited from Barack Obama's birthday party? The guy who based his entire career on highlighting the horrors of social interaction?
But alas, on Sunday evening, New York Fashion Week - front row, no less! - was where Larry David was, having as pleasant a time as one would imagine.
In a video captured and shared by The Cut's Emilia Petrarca, everyone's favorite antisocial antihero can be seen hunched over and plugging his ears at the blowout presentation for It-Brand STAUD. In addition to the blasting tunes, unfortunately for him, the runway finale also included a surprise fireworks show - much to the delight of just about everyone else in attendance.

The video, of course, has quickly made the rounds on social media (although it's taken way too long for someone to put the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme song over it). Considering the fact that David was also spotted plugging his ears and looking unenthused at the US Open this weekend, many fans are wondering whether his appearances about town might be related to Curb's upcoming new season.
If so, those scenes are going to be prettay, prettay, prettay good.
