On the Eighth Day of Shatnermas…


It’s hard to believe it’s gone by so quickly!

Tonight is the eighth and final night of Shatnermas 2013. Over the last week, we’ve taken a look at a lot of The Shat’s greatest clips from throughout his career–some well known, and some not-so-well known. Tonight, like those you may have roasting over an open fire on this Christmas Eve, we’ll throw out some definite chestnuts.

From his legendary LP, “The Transformed Man,” who could forget his take on The Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” I ask you?

(Picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies.)

Also from the same album, there’s an equally entertaining version of “Mr. Tambourine Man!”

(Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man! Check out this video here if you can’t see it.)

Let’s also not forget that The Shat is Canadian by birth and in 2011, he was presented the 2011 Governor General’s Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement!

(If you can’t see The Shat’s version of “O Canada,” click here!)

One of my favorite Shat clips of all time, he declares, “I am Canadian!”

(Click here, eh?)

But, apparently, he’s also Iron Man.  Who knew?

(At this point, there probably isn’t anything The Shat can’t do, but since he’s Iron Man, you should click here.)

The Shat also had a chance to take on the Gorn Captain again…although, this time, it was in a much more comfortable environment…

(We’re gettin’ too old for this sh…)

Lastly, what celebration of William Shatner would be complete without the clip that is permanently etched into our collective memories–the words that have made him a pop-culture icon the world over…

(The most famous prologue in television history can be seen here.)

So ends Shatnermas for another year!  I hope you have all reveled in the joy of the season and enjoyed this eight night tribute to William Shatner. We’ll do it again same time, next year!

Merry Shatnermas to all, and to all a good night!
