At this point, I don’t think I can say anything about Leonard Nimoy that hasn’t already been said by more eloquent people. He and his acting have left indelible memories with all of us and our pop culture. And not only was he a great actor, he was also a great person. Often that’s all too rare a combination these days. In this post I’m simply going to let some of Nimoy’s work speak for itself. Live love and prosper. Read more…

Spock vs. Spock in Audi Ad

Posted by Ben Huber on May 10, 2013 in Star Trek

Have you ever wanted to see Zachary Quinto or Leonard Nimoy duke it out in brutal, hand-to-hand combat? A bloody battle to the death? Well, sadly, you’ll have to wait for that – perhaps some other time. For now, you’re getting a slow-paced race between the two Spocks as they drive their cars to the golf course. Rich people problems! Yes, it’s an Audi ad. So just temper your consumerist tendencies and just enjoy the jokes they pile on. Especially the Bilbo Baggins joke. Which, if you need a refresher on that, just click here. You won’t regret it. Read more…

Leonard Nimoy Will Sell You a Playstation 4

Love yourself some fake commercials? Here’s a re-dubbed commercial from 1981 featuring the one and only Leonard Nimoy, selling you laserdiscs… er, I mean, the Playstation 4. I love the whole fake 80s commerical shtick that marketers have been using recently for movies and games, so this video from IGN fits right in. They really nailed the cheesy transitions and old-school typography. If you want, you can even take a look at the original commercial they used for this parody – it’s almost as funny – but mostly just charming in that so very 80s way. Read more…

See Spock Shill for Hallmark

Posted by Michael Sacco on Dec 25, 2010 in Star Trek

Ah, Christmas. If you watched TV in the 90s, you probably remember Hallmark’s relentless commercials for new commemorative ornaments around this time of year. They had one for everything! I had a little light-up space shuttle ornament with opening loading bays, even. What space shuttles have to do with Christmas, I have no idea. Speaking of shuttles, though, check out this Christmas miracle — a video of Leonard Nimoy appearing in a 1992 Hallmark ad for a Star Trek shuttlecraft ornament. If you thought his trademark Vulcan greeting meant “live long and prosper,” well, you might learn a little something today. Read more…

The Epic Saga of Leonard Nimoy’s Bicycle

Posted by Gia Manry on Jul 9, 2010 in Star Trek

Spock & Kirk Theater

I’m not much of a Trekkie (nor a Trekker), but even I can get a kick out of the following video, spotted at Topless Robot and shot in what I’m going to guess were the early ’80s, possibly late ’70s, featuring Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and Bill Shatner (Kirk) recalling fond memories of their time on the Star Trek set…particularly as it relates to Nimoy’s bicycle.

Oddly enough, it’s the Shat who spends more time proclaiming to be the logical one in the situation… Read more…
