William Shatner interprets Rocket Man


  1. I can see why you put no comment with this. I didn't know what to make of it. A very clever self parody of both Shatner's inability to act and the silliness of pop lyrics. Or was he just ham. I do like parody songs one of the best that I've seen is John Otway singing "I will survive" as Bob Dylan. It really made you laugh. I just wasn't sure if I wasn't laughing here at Shatner rather than what he was doing.

  2. Hard to decide Gerry. My guess is that Shatner knew it was cringingly bad but realised the audience of sci-fi enthusiasts would like it. But maybe I'm being too kind to Shatner and he's just a twat.
