I think that Star Trek ad for DirecTV HD is one of the best ever.

What do you think?

I think Shatner is one of the best at poking fun at himself. It's a good commercial. And for the record I was NEVER a Star Trek fan, but I do like the commercial.

My son tells me most of the footage is from ST VI. I've only seen the spot once, and I was pretty far from the TV at the time.

But I'm a Star Trek fan and I think it's funny, from what I saw.

I'm a big fan of Star Trek and I love the ad. Can't see why any Trekies would disaprove unless they just take themselves and the series way too seriously. I especially love the line, "For what Star Fleet just ponied up for this big screen tv, settling for cable would be illogical." The thought that Star Fleet "ponied up" big bucks for a big screen tv for the Enterprise crew just cracks me up!

For the record, that is from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. And as much as it pains me to agree with a Steeler's fan* it is a great commercial. I think they just put a bunch of makeup on Shatner. X-Men 3 had Patrick Stewart and whats-his-name digitally enhanced and it looked a LOT better than Shatner in that commercial.

(* actually, my girlfriend is a huge Steelers fan. I still don't get her terrible towel and Gorgonzola has to do with football :rolleyes: ..... guess that's another topic for another thread.)
