Ok. This is bad. In honor of all the talks of Shatner’s scene in the new Star Trek I did a little digging. This gem is from the sci fi awards 1978. 50 seconds in William Shatner BUTCHERS the classic Rocket Man in spoken Word. In the prototypical fashion of Shatner speak… The same vein as Christopher Walken speak. You see, the funniest thing about this is that he truly believes he is referring to himself as a (whisper…..) rocket man……… But he doesn’t understand it is about getting high…Even when he exhales an exuberant amount of cigarette smoke through his nose and mouth and says “Highhhh…..”
Back when smoking was healthy.
