I am no stranger to a William Shatner cover. I’m still reeling from his cover of Pulp’s “Common People”. Last night, he graced the stage of “Lopez Tonight” and did a cover of, what else, Cee-Lo Green’s “Fuck You”. For some reason the embed player won’t work on here, so click it baby, click it real good.
What’s interesting about the cover is that he actually sounds a little George Takei-ish. Also interesting? One of his backup singers is dressed like Captain Kirk.
Now enjoy the Shatner/Ben Folds “Common People” and if you still have time left to waste today, check out the George Takei soundboard.
