Personalized Shatner Videos Appearing Online August 18, 2008by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Celebrity,Memorabilia,Shatner , trackback
Last week we told fans that William Shatner, Star Trek’s first Captain Kirk, was holding an online autographing event at LiveAutographs.com. The event was held last Wednesday and some of the personalized videos from the event, including ones for TrekMovie.com editors, are now online.
Shat shoutouts to the TrekMovie team
Apparently a few TrekMovie readers found their way to LiveAutograph, so they decided to give TrekMovie’s Anthony Pascale (aka Tony) a shoutout and thank you from The Shat (so thank you right back). Plus TrekMovie’s Merchandise (and resident Shatnerologist) Editor John Tenuto picked up his own personalized message for his family.
More Shatner LiveAutograph videos on YouTube
Starting late last week, fans were sent video files (in various formats) of their custom personalized message from William Shatner. Of course it didn’t take long for these to start working their way to YouTube. In watching the videos you can see that, as is his custom, Shatner did a bit of improvising. Here is a sampling:
The Ferelli Family gets Shat to deliver a Kirk line…sort of
Shat delivers a birthday message in his trademark style
TechCruch get Shatner to ‘sort of’ endorse their site
Shat gives Steven the ‘thumbs up’
Joe (who I believe is a TrekMovie regular) asks the Shat:
"If you were living in the fictional world of Star Trek do you think you would have become a starship captain or remained an entertainer?"
Shat ‘disses’ vblogger Zane Savage?
Shat apparently wouldn’t read what one fan wanted him to say.
Then again it could just be a publicity stunt.
If you got Shat to say something interesting, or he made it interesting on his own, put it up on YouTube and we will add it to this article.
LiveAutographs.com will likely hold another Shatner event as well as events for other Star Trek luminaries. Upcoming events include one for the cast and showrunners of Lost, BSG’s Tricia Helfer, and Hulk Hogan. More info at LiveAutographs.com.
