Hello again everyone. I’m back! I have been on vacation for the last week and I’m sorry to my many thousands of loyal followers that I was away for so long. I would have let you all know but I, unlike some other MWTVG writers, didn’t feel the need to rub my vacation in your faces. I am far too professional for that.
Anyway, while I was gone, I was introduced to a very funny commercial starring Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto as dueling Spocks in a commercial for Audi. My brother-in-law gave me part of the back story to this commercial which makes it even funnier and makes me like Leonard Nimoy more than I already did. First, let me give you what has to be the low point in Leonard Nimoy’s career, the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins:
Yes. He really did that. I don’t know what it is with those Star Trek guys who think they can sing, but wow. This was classically bad.
Ok so now that you have Bilbo, Bilbo Baggins, stuck in your head, keep that in mind when you watch this commercial from Audi:
There is much to love about this commercial but seeing that Nimoy is willing to make fun of himself a bit really is fantastic. Hats off to Audi for this commercial. They really did a great job.
