Shatner and Nimoy Star in a Volkswagen CommercialOctober 14th, 2014
If you are Volkswagen and you want people to think of your electric cars as high-tech and cool, what do you do? Well, obviously you hire William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy to star in a commercial – like this German language commercial, which recently premiered.
It shows a young Trekkie’s wish coming true when Shatner moves into his neighborhood and befriends him. They head off for a ride in their Volkswagen e-Golf, and along the way they encounter Nimoy in hs futuristic VW XL1. The behind-the-scenes video below shows Shatner hanging out in the kid’s room and talking about all of the Star Trek toys and collectibles on display. These are some great moments here.
Shat is most definitely the man – even if he can’t do the Vulcan salute.
