Commercial Break: Shatner triumphs over own evil twin, man gets cheap hotel room

4 March 2010

We imagine that one of the reasons you tootled your internet machine over to this site is because you’re more than a little partial to a bargain. Now imagine how good you’d feel if you had William bloody Shatner on your side whenever it came to striking a deal.

That’s his role in this new US ad for Priceline – although he doesn’t do himself any favours by cutting a Shatner-shaped hole in the side of some bloke’s house before chipping in with some cash-saving advice.

But, the Star Trek legend does defeat his own evil twin (replete with evil beard) in the process. It all ends with the bemused punter getting 50% off the price of a hotel room and the rest of us getting an insight into how the internal dialogue that is permanently going on inside William Shatner’s mind might sound…

    I've seen the follow up where Leonard Nimoy comes along, does the Vulcan deathgrip thing and make the guy his bitch. Priceline didn't like it though.

    Does it allow you to search for hotels with pools?

What do you think?
