Best Thing on the Internet: Shatner as God Sings Queen

Posted By on Thu, Oct 20, 2011 at 2:41 PM

Anyone who's ever listened to his brave, bizarre and brilliant collaboration with Ben Folds, "Has-Been," knows that William Shatner is God.

But for those who haven't heard that album, the music video for Shatner's version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" from his new concept album, Seeking Major Tom, makes it a little more explicit. Shatner is cast as a comet-spitting CGI face in the sky dishing knowledge and melodies to stargazing lovers, as assorted constellations sing the "oohs" and "aahs."

While Shatner's work is often used as a go-to punchline, it's his consistent willingness to do something this audaciously bizarre that makes him a genius.
