I just wanted to remind everybody that today is William Shatner’s 80th birthday. Whether you love him, hate him, or could care less about him, he’s been a big influence in geek culture, and today’s pop culture. As a YouTube video comment claims, “This man will be the sample king long after Charlie Sheen and Vanilla Ice are doorstops of pop history.”
Most people know him as Captain Kirk, though he’s done quite a bit more than that. Commercials, other various TV shows, conventions, and even guest-spots on geeky shows and movies (such as Fanboys), and more.
To celebrate The Shat, I leave you with a classic.
Happy Birthday, Shatner! May the force be with you! Wait… what?
