Michael W. Casby on April 17th, 2015
On April 17, 2015, Michael W. Casby saw there was a Blah, Blah, Blah Day. He then tweeted at Checkiday, declaring July 23 as Yada, Yada, Yada Day. He also created Facebook and Twitter pages for the day. Casby said that the Seinfeld episode "The Yada Yada" was "part of the creative inspiration for the establishment of the day." "The Yada Yada" was the 153rd episode in the series and aired on April 24, 1997. It soon became one of the most popular Seinfeld episodes.
The phrase "yada, yada, yada"—which means "so on and so forth," or "blah, blah, blah"—was used in the episode. It is a phrase that had been in use before, but the episode increased its popularity. It had previously been used by comedian Lenny Bruce in the 1950s and 1960s, and by other television shows in the 1980s and 1990s. Yada, Yada, Yada Day gained in popularity on the internet after its creation. Eventually, Jerry Seinfeld himself referenced the day, when he released an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, on the holiday in 2017.
