Another video treat for the day comes from an ABC News interview with comedian Will Ferrell, who reveals that he began his career doing Star Trek comedy. Watch Will sing the theme to Star Trek below.


Will Ferrell’s Star Trek

While promoting his new movie Megamind, Will Ferrell revealed to ABC news that he began his stand up career talking Star Trek, or more specifically singing the theme to the original Star Trek. He demonstrates this in the video below, and also does a little of his George W. Bush talking Star Trek too.

Lol. He is so funny. Doing Bush and Trek Together. I think they should get him a small part on the next Trek Movie. Would be fun.

2. MSN1701 - November 5, 2010

Why so awesome, Will Ferrell?

3. CmdrR - November 5, 2010

Will Ferrell as Captain John Christopher in ST 2012.

4. Harry Ballz - November 5, 2010

Funny stuff!

Love Will Ferrell. The Other Guys is the funniest Will Ferrell movie I have ever seen.

@6 – I couldn’t have said it better myself

… unless I actually wanted to make sense.

But enough about yourself. This talkback is about Wil Ferrell singing Star Trek.

13. Phil - November 5, 2010

Most overpaid guy in Hollywood…sorry, he’s a one gimmick comic, and he needs to join Jim Carrey out at the former funny guys home….or sign a contract with Disney.

14. Phil - November 5, 2010

Hater is about as annoying as the people who insist on using it, while explaing how tolerent they are…..

15. Dee - November 5, 2010

Yeah….it’s funny!!!

16. Jason - November 5, 2010

@6: I think that the interviewer was being facetious about Ferrell being a George Bush Republican. I think he was just joking about how Ferrell played Bush on SNL. I would be very surprised if Ferrell was a real Republican.

But even if he was, even I don’t consider *every* Republican to be a partisan hack perpetrating hate. So only you were perpetrating hate you partisan hack.

The Starfleet Common Sense

warning for trolling. You keep trying to turn non political threads into political things…stop it. The world is far more interesting when you don’t look at everything as some kind of left/right thing.

This site has one agenda…to share and enjoy Star Trek…wherever it shows up.

18. Will_H - November 5, 2010

So back to the Star Trek aspect of this, I thought it was funny. I think that yeah, Will Farrell does kinda have the one persona he plays, but somehow he keeps it different enough for it to still be funny, at least to me.

19. CR - November 5, 2010

@The Starfleet Common Sense, I’m not always a big fan of Ferrell’s Bush, but give him some credit here; he actually stayed away from the partisanship this time. Leave the outrage for times when it is deserved.

20. Phil - November 5, 2010

Will Farrell strikes me as someone who beleives everything he says has some insightful humor to it, then gives you that blank stare when you don’t laugh. I’m sorry, compared to the AJWS bit Sir Pat did, this was lame.

21. Pro-Khan-sel - November 5, 2010

@3 Very interesting thought.

22. Jesustrek - November 5, 2010

Very FUNNY ;)

23. MC1 Doug - November 5, 2010

Lord, I hope my son Wes never sees this!!!

To this day he still torments me with his rendition of Bill Murray’s (awful in its own right) of lounge lizard ‘Star Wars!’

Besides, Will Ferrell bugs me in the worst way!

24. David C. Roberson - November 6, 2010

@ 6

I agree! Blast! When will Ferrell just STOP being so hateful!? The entire time he was on SNL, my mouth would open and this awful, hate-filled sound would come out involuntarily… I mean, it sorta sounded like laughter, but it was definitely Ferrell calling forth large chunks of hatred from the core of my being. And it got worse with every movie he made! Why, that Ricky Bobby movie had me so full of hate, I could barely breath! Everyone thought I was laughing, but really, I was expelling the pure and vicious guile that only WILL FERRELL can invoke! Please, Will, STOP exposing this poor world to your vitriol! My soul is already so darkened by Ferrell, I fear I may never save it!


25. Niall Johnson - November 6, 2010

Look People. Comedians rip everyone. SNL went after both Clintons, Both Bushes, Palin, etc. etc.
They simply made fun of them.
As public figures, they’re fair game. Get over yourselves.

26. Boris - November 6, 2010

Doesn’t he look a bit like Rick Berman?×300.jpg

27. Robert H. - November 6, 2010

“Watch Will Ferrell Sing Theme To Star Trek.” – Do we have to?

28. Cygnus-X1 - November 6, 2010


29. AJ - November 6, 2010

It’s funny…I wonder how many up & coming comics have used “Star Trek” as material?

Eddie Murphy and of course Kevin Pollack come to mind…

30. Mator - November 6, 2010

I cannot for the life of me figure out why people think this guy is funny! He’s droll, stupid and an idiot!!!

31. Shaun - November 6, 2010

well, at least he is an educated “idiot.”

33. Khan was Framed! - November 6, 2010


To look at the work of a comedian as partisan or even lenient towards a left or right way of thinking! That is just shameful.

It’s really sad that a society could limit itself to only two points of view.

Even sadder that it’s such an ingrained behavior, it shows up in comments on a STAR TREK message board.

As I’ve said in previous posts; please leave your quaint little belief systems at the door & post comments that are about the issues at hand.

34. Will_H - November 6, 2010

Hey look we have our selves another troll. Maybe they should just start getting banned right away. Cause really, how do people have so little to do with their lives that they take an interview with Will Farrell singing the Star Trek theme and turn it into an excuse to bash liberals? In the words of William Shatner, “get a life!”

35. Chelsea - November 6, 2010

Haha he’s not half bad!

36. Red Dead Ryan - November 6, 2010

#6 and #32 is probably the same moron.

37. richpit - November 6, 2010

I’m just curious…can you really ban someone on a basically anonymous site? I mean, you put in whatever name you want to be known as, right?

Ban one name and the banned individual will just come back with a different name.

Just sayin’. Sorry for being off-topic.

38. Will_H - November 6, 2010

The best that could happen is maybe to ban that person’s IP addy, but there’s always ways around that to. I guess at the end of the day I just have to remind my self that trolls are just sad people who probably have few to no friends out in the real world and this is the only way for them to get attention.

39. Jim Nightshade - November 6, 2010

I remember Anthony knows when someone tries to come back with another name-is it theip address that gives em away?

40. The Original Spock's Brain - November 7, 2010

@32 Troll!

Will Ferrell is always hilarious although some of the writing and actors around him are not…

41. Horatio - November 7, 2010

Whats really freaky is how Ferrell starts to look like Bush as he does the impersonation!

44. Phil - November 7, 2010

Yeah, it’s the IP address, unless someone is going to the trouble to use multiple computers. It’s obviously not too bad of a problem, or you would be required to register to post.

I’m also assuming there are some filters to the site as well. I’m not a fan of the fan films (yeah, I know some people love them), and I’ve made a few posts makings comparisons to the …”mature audiences” film industry that never saw the light of day. So everyone posts are at the whim of the moderators.

48. Melllvar - November 8, 2010

Hateful?! I thought it was funny!
Surely even the most pro-Bush man in the crown can admit that he DOES sound like that, and that Will Ferrell’s remdition is hilarious because of it

49. Melllvar - November 8, 2010

lol @ Phil

50. Tom - November 8, 2010

Not a big Will Ferrel fan (“land of the lost”?, ’nuff said).

But I do love Jack Black & Tenacious D’s rendition of the Star Trek theme, where he sings the actual lyrics. It’s spot on and hilarious

51. Phil - November 8, 2010

Interesting. 44 is mine, but I can’t claim credit for 45-47. Oh, well…

52. NuFan - November 8, 2010


43. is not me.

53. Jeff - November 8, 2010

Will Ferrell should be Harry Mudd. Just saying.

54. Daoud - November 8, 2010

Will Ferrell doesn’t “fit” Harry Mudd. Too tall. HOWEVER, he could be the recast version of Melvin Belli’s GORGAN THE FRIENDLY ANGEL!!

Now there’s a TOS villain that could be redone in interesting ways in the alternate universe.

55. Captain Otter - November 8, 2010

Personally, I think Farrell’s Bush impression is funny- and I’m a conservative who voted for W.

Our nation has a long history of satire aimed at both parties, and SNL’s cast and alums have skewered both sides equally. And our country is a better place because of it.

56. Vultan - November 8, 2010


Agreed! If a person can’t laugh at himself or his politics once in awhile, then he isn’t much of a person.

57. Phil - November 8, 2010

54. Daoud – November 8, 2010

Yeah…The Stay-Puffed Marshmallow Man…IN SPACE. Think fluffy Balok. Give him (her?) Q power, and have the screen go blank three minutes into the film, nothing but silence for, oh, about six minutes, then an hour and a half of Klingon propaganda…in Klingonese. Hows that for an alternate universe?

56. Vultan – I’ll second the motion…

58. Daoud - November 8, 2010

@57 Oooers, you made me recall that awesome little piece of Klingon propaganda:

Oh, and it’s STA-PUFT!
