Video Saturday: Bohemian Rhapsody by William F'ing Shatner!

William Shatner, in all his 80-year-old transcendant looniness, has made a new album called Seeking Major Tom, in which Himself sings 20 songs that have more or less or almost nothing to do with space and whatnot.
If someone doesn't buy me the deluxe vinyl box set
for Christmas, I'm going to kill myself.
We've just had a pretty awesome week here on planet Earth, what with Ghadafy being dragged out of a drainage pipe and having his ass capped by his own people, and Governor Dick Perry being endorsed by his dogs. But this? This is serious shit. William Shatner has released a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." Make your peace, Israel and Palestine. The stars ain't gonna align any better than they are right this minute.

Like Shatner's landmark, definitive version of "Rocket Man," his "Bohemian Rhapsody" has got to be experienced in tandem with its video. BECAUSE IT DOES, THAT'S WHY. For reals, people. I hope to God he makes videos for some of the other tracks on the album, like "She Blinded Me with Science" and "Space Cowboy." Yes, I'm very interested in the Shat's artistic take on the Pompatus of Love.

But for now, please behold, experience, and be awed by "Bohemian Rhapsody," as interpreted by the most awesome man in show business, Mister Captain His Eminence William "Don't Call Me T.J. Hooker or I'll Kick You in the Balls" Shatner. I freakin' love you, Bill.
