Sounds exciting, Bill! Guess we can't miss that one,
As if William Shatner actually needed an introduction! At any rate, his recent, dare I say "cover," of Queen's classic rock opera ballad Bohemian Rhapsody, is brilliant enough, but the music video is nothing short of stunning! Wait... I've seen that face written
in the stars motif before.... On some geektastic, fanboy action figure website called... what was it now? OH YEAH!
Action Figure Universe! Imagine that! Blue atmospheric effects highlighting classic mythic
figures illuminated in the night sky and all. Hmmm....
But I certainly couldn't have been the
first person to ever come up with that idea, now could I? In fact, I think the opening sequence in the original Clash of the Titans film from 1981 is what inspired me to incorporate similarly styled visuals into the design of my own humble
little action figure website. And you could even say that Will Shatner himself has been inspiring me in one way or another
since perhaps even before the day I was born - given that my mother watched Star Trek loyally while she was nursing me
in the womb! Sadly, I don't have Mr. Shatner's budget to work with when I put my own visual elements together
for my site though....
Well, at any rate, the great Shatner and his team have done an absolutely
amazing job with this video. The only qualm I have is that I'd have liked to have seen more of his whole head and
not just inner parts of his face, but... who's complaining? And (if you'll pardon the pun) let's face it,
folks, if anybody in this whole wide wonderful universe of ours is a living, breathing, 1:1 scale action figure, it's
THE William Shatner!
