The newest Priceline Negatiator ad is great
Oh, man this actor has all of William Shatner’s mannerism down to a T. In many ways, Priceline is the reason Shatner has the career that he has now. The ads poke fun at him and his bad acting. And, Shatner is willing to make fun of himself.
The actor in the ad seems to be channeling Shatner of the 60s than the Shatner of old. Hell, he does a better job with Shatner than Shatner does today.
While the above is my current favorite, the one below is still funny.
This is because Shatner always felt upstaged by Nimoy and complained to Gene that Spock always received more fan mail than he did. And the reason he even got a directing gig on STV is because he wanted what Nimoy had. So, this ad is a play on that.
And here is a bonus re-post of the Shatner Remix of Whoo!
