Must Watch: Captain Kirk's Response to the Star Trek Trailer

What better way to brighten up this week than a little bit of comedy? In this hilarious video, the old Captain Kirk, aka William Shatner, flips out when he sees himself in the new Star Trek trailer. Thanks to TV Tréquer on YouTube for whipping this together. We usually don't feature video likes this, but I just had to run it today, primarily because there's a lack of worthwhile news and also because it's downright hilarious. I'm loving all this classic Trek being dug up due to newfound interest in the franchise, even though not everyone is as excited as I am for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. Just check this video out!
This is definitely only the very first of many hilarious Star Trek videos that we'll see over the next year. I'm sure by the time we get to May, we'll have seen hundreds of funny videos like this. I really love watching all these throwbacks to Shatner and the original Trek. I've haven't actually seen a lot of the episodes of "The Original Series" so it's even more ridiculous to see things like this without knowing it existed before. Shatner really acted that way in an episode?! You've got to be kidding me! All this does is make me even more excited for the new Star Trek! If we come across anything else this good, we'll let you know!
