The 12 months is 1978. William Shatner, most identified for his portrayal of Captain James Tiberius Kirk on the (on the time) cult basic “Star Trek,” took half in probably the most absurd musical performances of all time. A smoking Shatner recites the lyrics to Elton John’s “Rocket Man” earlier than he breaks into two Shatners for the refrain, after which a 3rd Shatner to carry all of it residence. It was pure madness. Please watch everything of the video earlier than transferring ahead. Critically, you’ll be able to’t miss this.
At the moment, the lyrics took on an entire new that means as Shatner flew into space on a Blue Origin rocket this morning. Whereas we can not verify whether or not or not Shatner packed a bag final night time, preflight, we do know that he wasn’t gone for a “lengthy, very long time.” The mission lasted simply over 10 minutes, or about one fifth the size of an episode of “Star Trek.”
Whereas we had been hoping he may discover a blue girl to smooch on the journey, befriend some tribbles or struggle a Gorn, it seems that the 90-year-old actor’s journey wasn’t practically as eventful as his fictional adventures. However say what you’ll concerning the quick journey, he did boldly go the place few individuals have ever gone earlier than. And that is fairly rattling cool.
To rejoice we threw collectively a gallery of tattoos of all issues Star Trek. Get pleasure from!
