Rock It, Man. Rocket, Man. Rocket Man

I posted a link to this before, but now that it’s so easy to embed video within posts, I’ve got to post it here again. Plus, my Sketch buds haven’t seen this, and they’ll get a real trip out of this.

Shatner. 1978 science fiction awards. Interpreting Elton John’s “Rocket Man”.

It’s one of those things where I’m not sure if it’s really really good, or really really bad. Or really really good because it’s really really bad. But, man. Do I ever love it. Shatner totally sells it, man, and I’m buying it all up.

Fantastic.

    Wow. Despite the camp, there’s a strange sadness and majesty to it all that you can’t explain to someone unless they see it. What a song. What a man. What a post.

    Thanks man. Keep ’em coming.

    Once again reaffirming the brilliance of “Family Guy”. Stewie’s rendition of this was spot on.
