Now THIS is what you call acting

I always thought Bill Shatner of Star Trek fame was a bit of a ham, and, in fact, he is sort of notorious in Hollywood for overacting. But this is really something to see. It's from a 1978 science fiction award show. As far as I can figure, the guy who introduces him at the beginning is Bernie Taupin, the lyricist who collaborated with Elton John on many of his biggest early hits, including this infamous Shatner rendition of “Rocket Man.” The best part is when the multiple Shatners appear and start interacting with each other. Good times. You may want some wine with this cheese.

He always seems to emphasize the wrong words - I'm not the MAN they think I am. That's funny stuff...

When the third William Shatner comes out doing that weird dance with his tie all crooked I couldn't stop laughing. What was that??!!
