Dr. Lindyke "Sings" Harvey Ray as William Shatner

Tuesday.... TEEYUUUOOOZDay... marchthetwentysecondtwothousandeleven... is William Shatner's Birthday, and TrekMovie.com and ThinkGeek.com are holding a "Talk Like William Shatner" contest to celebrate.

You know me, I'm up for a good contest. So here's my entry:

I took one of our original songs and performed it in Bill's distinct style. I chose Harvey Ray because it doesn't get much quirkier than a song made up of TLAs. I pray that he doesn't strike me down with a photon torpedo for what I've done.

I had to skip one of the verses because the total video couldn't exceed three minutes under the rules. I think I've conformed to all of the rules, which are here, in case you want to enter yourself. That link also takes you to some tips on how to talk like William Shatner (although it's more of a "How to Parody William Shatner" thing. He doesn't really talk like that. I sort of split the difference between parody and a straight impression, which may hurt my chances, but do we really want to make fun of the guy on his birthday?

I also chose to sing because... well, because Trek was a long time ago, and Bill Shatner didn't stand still. Why should we?
