'Seinfeld' actor Jason Alexander stars in new Nickelback video – watch

Video for 'Trying Not To Love You' sees the comic actor attempt to woo Baywatch actress Brooke Burns

Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander stars in the video for Nickelback's new single 'Trying Not To Love You' as duelling baristas – you can watch the promo above.

Alexander, who is best known for playing low-witted loser George Costanza in the hit US comedy show, plays Bud, a bumbling coffee shop employee – with a dodgy-looking toupee - who attempts to woo attractive Baywatch actress Brooke Burns with stylish cups of coffee.

While he fantasies Burns writhing around in coffee beans, Bud is interrupted by a motorbike-riding lothario – also played by Alexander – who rides his bike into the shop and begins challenging the barista to a coffee making duel in order to win the affections of Burns.

As crowds gather to see the the fedora-wearing competitor make a mockery of Bud's limited skills, Burns is won over by the coffee made by Bud and together they ride off on a stolen motorbike.

However, it seems fans of both Nickelback and Jason Alexander are confused by the treatment, with one fan simply commenting, "WTF, what was that!?" on YouTube while another wrote, "This officially replaces Michael Richards' anti-Semitic rant as the worst thing any cast member has done post-Seinfeld".

Responding to his haters on Twitter, Alexander Tweeted:

Last month, a man had to be rescued by fire fighters after he fell down a 40-foot gorge while trying to sneak into a Nickelback gig in New York.

According to Gawker, 22-year-old Kevin Beaudette was taken to the Albany Medical Centre to be treated for injuries after his nasty spill, which he sustained after he lost his footing and slipped into the Geyser Brook George. He had been trying to find his way into the much-maligned Canadian band's gig at the Performing Arts Centre in Saratoga Springs.
