Well, that didn’t take long. Yes, we already have a Star Trekified parody of the popular Korean ‘Gangnam Style’ music video — this time, sung almost completely in Klingon. The video is actually of rather impressive quality, with all of the lyrics sung in Klingon, and the dancers in full Trek garb shooting on location. Very nicely done. Hit the jump for the video.
Opa Klingon Style
UPDATE: Video available online again
Follow me on Twitter: @kaylai.
That tennis court is not canon.
I prefer no news updates to this to be honest…
Is there still a new movie coming?
I thought that was really well done. Great singing.
#2: I think your sense of humor got beamed off the ship :P
Loved the video, very well done and true to the original.
Hi Kayla, I don’t know how much free time you have but it would be awesome if you could contribute to keeping this site going, and covering news (when there actually is news…)
Opps I thought this was the new trailer for the new movie. Bob O. how much longer do we have to wait or is that a secret too!!!!!!
Well, at least it’s a new post… too bad it’s week old news… I guess ‘the source for everything related to trek’ is now just ‘reposting of old news everyone already knows.. and fans putting links to movie news in their posts.
At least it’s new to this site…
Pay attention to the background: Two women in TOS uniforms fighting over a tribble! :-D (And later, the Klingon attempts to drown the poor critter…)
I like it better than the actual video, the starfleet chicks are hot!
This site continues to loose it’s luster day-by-day.
You all act like you are paying a subscription feed to this site, that it is not done purely for free. Go find another site if you don’t like it.
@7 Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek
So something gets posted and you still whine. Go away troll.
12 – lol exactly. Glad he keeps the site on his heavy rotation to check to see if there is something to whine about every 45 minutes lol. What a fool.
The 2913 movie will be a box office fiasco.
Wow! People were complaining that nothing was being posted and now those same people are whining about what was posted. If you feel so slighted by this sight or hate what’s being posted… GO AWAY! It’s no wonder Anthony & the contributors aren’t posting here. What a bunch of ingrates!
On to the post at hand! I think it was extremely well done! I was wondering when there was going to be a Trek parody of this song. Thanks for posting Kayla!
@10: Interesting that the lustre of trekmovie.com appears to be correlated to your grammar skills, in that case.
Star Trek Into Darkness indeed…
By the way, a former friend punched me in the eye the other day and called me weird because “Medea” is head of Star Fleet.
What could I do?
Hopefully JJ changes this in the new movie.
I love it!!! HEY SEXY LADY!!!
Wow, your friend must have been fired at Paramount – no news of any kind for weeks and you come back with this?? Trektoday even has better news and they suck!!
Okay, that video was pretty bad. :-)
But thanks anyway, Kayla! Really appreciate it!
I like the chick with the hula-hoop.
#25. That and the Guinan-lookalike were pretty awesome.
Listen. Interviews re: TNG restoration
I think some of you maladjusted malcontents need to realize that no one is forcing your here and we’re tired of your CONSTANT b***hing and griping. If you don’t like this site, then STOP COMING TO IT.
@1 I’ll see your wrong claim and raise you this: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Tennis
@28 If you don’t like the complaining, why do you feel compelled to respond to it?
“Trektoday even has better news and they suck!!”
LOL. Damned with faint praise.
Thanks for the Monday giggle.
I like how the Data doppelganger (in the parking garage) actually “dances” like Data in “Data’s day” when Crusher teaches him stepdancing on the holodeck.
Kayla, while I appreciate you trying to cover for an AWOL Anthony here, I think it is a sad say for this site when we get fill-in stories like this to cover for Anthony’s near-abandonment of this once great site.
@ 28 “I think some of you maladjusted malcontents need to realize that no one is forcing your here and we’re tired of your CONSTANT b***hing and griping. If you don’t like this site, then STOP COMING TO IT.”
But if I stopped coming here, then I wouldn’t get to read the incessant “complainers about the complainers” posts from people like you. Your are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
“Wow, your friend must have been fired at Paramount – no news of any kind for weeks and you come back with this?? Trektoday even has better news and they suck!!”
“Wow! People were complaining that nothing was being posted and now those same people are whining about what was posted. If you feel so slighted by this sight or hate what’s being posted… GO AWAY! It’s no wonder Anthony & the contributors aren’t posting here. What a bunch of ingrates!”
You are completely missing the point, Montreal Paul. I, for one, am not feeling slighted by this article. In the old days, when this site had mutlple artcipes per week, this would certainly been a fun diversion article. But these days, with Anthony pretty much having abandoned the site, and poor Kayla and the comic book guy trying to put in an article or so a week to cover for Anthony’s latest disappeance, yea, seeing this kind of article in the absence of real news in the quality of “THE source for everything new in Trek,” — yea, dude, this kind of pisses me off. And no, I don’t think I am an ingrate or owe anyone an apology for stating so. I want this site to be great again.
@ 32 MJ
So since you are one of the whiners about nothing being posted here – and you are complaining about this being posted here. How about clearing up what you actually want. Would you prefer “filler” stories until there is some actual news or would you prefer no news until actual news comes out. Or wait, would you prefer they make up news? You are actually one of the biggest whiners here. You complain when there are no new articles and you complain when there are articles.
Just doesn’t seem to be very funny to me. I think it’s just hard to capture what makes the original such a hit. Good effort, though. Couldn’t be easy to translate all that.
@37. Here are just a few of the stories just in the past five days on Trektoday:
TAKEI TO APPEAR ON NBC COMEDY
SHIMERMAN ON CASTLE
Trektoday provides regular new news of Trek. This site, Trekmovie.com, boldly proclaims:
THE SOURCE FOR EVERYTHING NEW IN TREK
So, I would turn the question to you. Is this site currently the source for everything new in Trek, or is is completely and utterly failing to live up to that proclamation?
And if I remember correctly, you prefer none of the stuff. You would rather news on the movie. No? You have mentioned it a few times in the past. Whenever something “non-movie” related was posted you were the first to complain about it. Recently, you complained about the TrekInk article and again on this one. Hmmm. Once a whiner and complainer, always a whiner and complainer.
You obviously don’t want to discuss this — you seem most interested in making a personal attack on me for some perceived injustice or emotional response to my posts in the pasts. Too bad, because when I actually tried to respond to you by showing you ACTUAL EXAMPLES of regular Trek news stories on a Trek site that is a working source for new and regular articles on Trek, you chose instead to ignore the substance and launch into your emotional rant against. me.
“And if I remember correctly, you prefer none of the stuff.”
Nope — your memory is poor. I like a lot of stuff on this site, and have posted so on multiple articles in the past. For example, I love the Science articles by Kayla, and have posted on those frequently including the latest one.
“You would rather news on the movie. No? You have mentioned it a few times in the past. Whenever something “non-movie” related was posted you were the first to complain about it.”
Don’t we all want more news on the movie? I mean, we are here on this site called trekMOVIE.com…duh! Congrats on this groundbreaking deduction, Sherlock. LOL
BETTA WERQ~ YES! Hilarious!
Did you not agree with someone on the TrekInk article that after no news they post a review about “a lousy 7 page comic”? Oh wait – let me refresh your memory:
“Ten days of absolutely NO news, and all we get is a review of a lousy 7 page comic book, that very few will buy and read. Yawn. Didn’t I hear they are going to make another Star Trek movie?… I seem to remember some sort of rumor along those lines… oh, right.. It’s a freaking secret.. god forbid, we actually get news about that.”
You come across as a smug know-it-all, MJ.
The comment on the comic was in relation to virtually no other significant news on this site. If you would have cared to have read my post above where I tried to respond to Montreal Paul, I specifically stated:
“You are completely missing the point, Montreal Paul. I, for one, am not feeling slighted by this article. In the old days, when this site had multiple articles per week, this would certainly been a fun diversion article. But these days, with Anthony pretty much having abandoned the site, and poor Kayla and the comic book guy trying to put in an article or so a week to cover for Anthony’s latest disappearance, yea, seeing this kind of article in the absence of real news in the quality of “THE source for everything new in Trek,” — yea, dude, this kind of pisses me off. And no, I don’t think I am an ingrate or owe anyone an apology for stating so. I want this site to be great again.”
“You come across as a smug know-it-all, MJ.”
Well, I certainly hope so! :-) Perhaps the difference between you and I is that I realize I am one and freely admit it.

All, it should be known that this Captain Ransom has been attacking multiple posters over the past couple of days as well on this site. As one example, here is a response he provided to someone on the recent Science Saturday article:
“No but all you do is whine! How crap… go away if you don’t like what is on this site. They is no news right now. Get that trough your tiny little brain. If you don’t like that fact, then go away and read the non-news on other sites. I am tired of your trolling and tired of your whining,”
And here are some other examples of his belligerent attacks over the past couple of days — he has been on quite a roll:
“Of course you got what you wanted… parents usually give into their whiny kids after a tantrum. ;) lol”
“And why don’t you post your usual nickname? Just being a coward to not show who you really are? What a dick.”
“Oh… by the way, You going to eat crow when the movie succeeds without you? Who cares if you don’t care about the movie. If you think that people won’t go to the movie because they are in post production and there is no news yet that they will boycott the movie…. well, I have to know – what color is the sky in your world? Hahahaha.”
“By the way – use your usual name. Coward. Wow. What a douchebag.”
#7. “Well, at least it’s a new post… too bad it’s week old news”
Not unlike your tired diatribes against this site. Such a sad commentary that a reader can’t enjoy a new article, rare as it may be, without having to endure your continuous mindless prattle. Give it a rest and go haunt Ain’t it Cool News for awhile.
#10. “This site continues to loose it’s luster day-by-day.”
…too bad it’s not losing more of its readers.

To me, this guy isn’t any different from all the other loud, rude and arrogant people on this site. With all due respect and no offense to MJ and Ryan, they can be quite vocal and talk down to people too. Some people are just like that with their personalities.
But I do agree with what he essentially saying about the whining on here. It really is getting too much. I think I am just going to stick to reading the articles and not the comments anymore.
I understand that people are upset that there isn’t any new news on here and that Anthony has gone MIA. But jeez, I am just as annoyed with the whining about it!
So with that being said, I think I will take a break from reading comments on here for awhile. I’ll be around and be back posting closer to the movie date. This is a good site… but I think the inmates are running the asylum now. Catch you all in the future guys.
Oh, and MJ … I did read your post to me above. Understood. and agree… somewhat. ;)
#38. “So, I would turn the question to you. Is this site currently the source for everything new in Trek, or is is completely and utterly failing to live up to that proclamation?”
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes…failing completely and utterly!! There is nothing newsworthy to see here. Anthony is not living up to his promise to fulfill all your Trekky desires! Yep, Anthony has some nerve. If I were you, I wouldn’t stand for it. You should leave, that would really show em!! :)
