If you don’t want William Shatner to sound like William Shatner, don’t get William Shatner! What a bozo.
I love the Shat! He takes no Shit!
Actually the second Shatner version sounded slightly better…
Clearly Shatner doesn’t suffer fools well.
Now HE knows how to troll someone!
How about when Shatner is the idiot?
Is there more? How’s this end?
He takes off his shirt.
OH GOD! MY EYES!!!
Let’s not forget about one of William Shatner’s other illustrious roles. I remember him best as “The Big Giant Head”!
(Seems he may have been type-casted for that one.)
I remember him more fondly as the commander of Moon Base, in the movie Airplane 2. When the script really over the top, parodied his Capt. Kirk role. Even the 2nd feature film. That was when he shut down the mission simulation, on Saavik, at the start of the movie. In Airplane 2 he told everyone to shut it down and go home, when he thought Striker was a goner. And the moon command set went dark. So many good satirical moments in that movie. But I never like “3rd Rock”, so I didn’t see his ratings boosting appearance on that one. And I didn’t care for “T.J. Hooker, or “Barbary Coast” either. I’m hard to please.
Like most professionals, Shatner doesn’t appreciate SEE, “spectator espoused expertize”. That is people who don’t bring anything to the table but think when something looks easy it is easy and they can tell you how to do it better. Given Hollywood’s cultural influence, American false self-confidence and can-do attitude, American’s are particularly prone to this.
I’ve worked with too many brown nosed managers who think this way.
Shatner handled this exactly as he should of, managing the manager!
How else are Idiot(s) going to learn, except if they realize they have to live with consequences of being an idiot.
You are dead right about this.
Don’t fuck with Captain Kirk!
Amateur got owned.
When pros meet a marketing grad or MBA rookie.
Everyone missed what really happened, Shatner did markedly better after the manager’s first objection…
Being expert at what he does, Shatner did better when he wanted to.
The manager’s foolishness was in not recognizing the improvement, and supposing he could do better than Shatner…
Shatner illustrated how foolish that idea was by forcing him to reveal what he thought was better….
So I have a different take on this…when sent to motivate experts to do better, let them decide when they have…. otherwise you are a fool and that expert might take the time, as Shatner did….to prove it.
The guy shouldn’t have interrupted on the second go round. Shatner also shouldn’t have been such a pompous ass after the guy apologized.
All he did was say’Uh,’ and Shatner drew him into the rest.
