It’s apparently William Shatner‘s birthday today, and Maurice LaMarche (voice actor guy extraordinaire) has decreed that today is also International Talk Like William Shatner Day. This is brilliant. Because there’s just something fantastic…and time consuming…when you’re talking like Shatner. Here is the man himself to teach you how to talk like that other man (himself):
I wanted to give you some of the Two Kevins for further reference in our celebration of this day, but sadly, I could only find a quick bit of Kevin Pollak. That’s after the break.
As for additional Shatner bits, I would say if you had to pick just one to watch–of The Shat himself–it would be this pair of videos from 1969. Good luck. And Happy ITLWS Day.
Thanks to Ken for the headsup.
