Kirk rocks.

Shatner does too, although I cringe through the recent Bran Flakes commercials.

Nitro and I saw him speak at a Toronto Star Trek convention, it was a hoot.

... and resulted in the classic Geek TV Shockwave creation, Snot Trek.

What about the Crest Whitening Strips commercial where he's Riverdancing in the woman's dream? [Eek!] What that had to do with teeth whitening was beyond me. He was dressed in white, so maybe he was representing dancing teeth. Maybe you hadn't seen that one because of the Canadian Ministry of Good Taste made sure it wasn't shown up there.

Shatner in Crest Whitening Strips is the best commercial ever!

Wasn't he going to do ads for Viagra or some other "performance-enhancing" drug?

The funniest Viagra commercial has to be one I recently saw for the first time, although I'm sure it wasn't meant to be funny. The soundtrack? Queen's "We Are The Champions." Yup, that's the product to sell with a song sung by a man who died from AIDS.

The person who dreamed up that one should be slapped. Repeatedly. And then slapped some more.

(Edited because I hit the wrong button)

My favorite Shatner commercial is the new Priceline commercial where he's led to believe he's being replaced as the corporate spokesman by Leonard Nimoy. I love it. [Big Grin]

Somebody has put together a trailer with clips in an effort to Bring Back Kirk.

Well, it wasn't that great. The ship scenes were phenomenal, but the scenes with people in them... they were all the same body :-/ Interesting idea though...

Yeah it was pretty lame. Apparently these guys are illiterate and haven't read the five or so Kirk novels written by Shatner. Kirk never died. It's a long story that can't be recounted here, but it has to do with Borg nanites. All the Shatner books are very good, and they all pair him up with Captain Picard. They should have made one of the Shatner novels into a film instead of that lame Insurrection movie.

I always liked the rather obvious corset that he wore in his last Star Trek films.

And have you heard his version of "Lucy in the sky with diamonds"? One of the funniest bad records ever made.

So I salute the great man.

Wasn't "Frodo of the nine fingers, and the ring of doom" one of his, too?

csk, I think you are referring to one of Leonard Nimoy's immortal recordings. I note with joy that there is best of compilation CD featuring selections by both of these great artists. Also on Amazon there is a second hand copy of Shatner's magnum opus on CD for sale at $499. A snip.
