Jerry Seinfeld is taking credit for influencing anyone who’s doing a show on wheels.

In the trailer for the new season of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” the “Seinfeld” creator names shows that have been “influenced” by his streaming show.

Seinfeld takes aim at “The Late Late Show’s” “Carpool Karaoke,” the spoof series “Alec Baldwin’s Love Ride,” the British show “Comedians Watching Football with Friends,” “Funny Uber Rides” and “Clergy in Cars Getting Coffee,” which features a rotating cast of guest priests and bishops talking religion.

“We are proud that others have taken notice of our style and have been inspired by it. The only comment we would like to make is, ‘If you’re gonna knock us off, get it right,'” Seinfeld says.

(Notably, Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” segment was inspired by a 2011 Comic Relief segment featuring Corden and George Michael. “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” premiered in 2012 on Sony’s digital network Crackle.)

He also shows clips of the comedians who he takes on rides (for coffee) in the upcoming season.

Ricky Gervais orders avocado toast to Seinfeld’s disgust. Seth Rogen discusses his bushy beard.

Other guests for the upcoming, 11th season include Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Sebastian Maniscalco, Martin Short, Mario Joyner, Melissa Villaseñor, Bridget Everett and Barry Marder.

The new season debuts on Netflix on July 19.
