Viral Video: Shatner-Palin in Ironic Autobiography Duel

shatner-palin

Here’s a video clip from NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien” Friday night, which featured a mock dramatic book-reading duel between “Star Trek” legend and “master thespian” William Shatner and former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin.

Shatner, who is well known for his jazz-backed, beat-style readings, has been mocking Palin on the television show.

His faux dramatic readings of out-of-context lines from her Twitter feed and her new autobiography, “Going Rogue,” include: “One year while stalking sheep, I disappeared….”

After his recent reading, Palin returned the favor with her own bongo-fueled interpretation of Shatner’s “Up Till Now.”

Result: Hysterical, especially when Palin and Shatner walk off hand-in-hand.

Say what you want about Palin–and BoomTown does–she does know how to put on a show.

Here’s the video:

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
