Huge Taylor Swift fan? Thank George Costanza.

Jason Alexander was at a charity event the other day where he apparently sang some Swift. After the event, he caught up with TMZ and explained that actually, he's responsible for putting Taylor on the map. He directed Brad Paisley's video "Online" back in 2007 (so, post-debut album), and now she's a global superstar. Draw your own conclusions.

The Seinfeld star is obviously just kidding around, but it's a fun connection regardless. Check out the interview -- as well as Swift's throwback video cameo -- below.
