William Shatner’s Dramatic Reading of Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’
Do fish swim? Do birds fly? Does William Shatner overact? The great Shatner’s made a career of being a bit much, from his teeth grinding days in the 60s as Captain Kirk to his Charlton Heston does Moses turn on those Priceline commercials. But nothing he’s ever done can compare to this.
Shatner can’t sing, but he can ‘interpret’. So here’s his interpretation – a dramatic reading, if you will – of the Elton John classic ‘Rocket Man’. And remember, he’s serious. Heart attack serious. IRS audit serious. Pregnancy test serious. Mr Sulu! Cringe factor 5!
