There’s a new Priceline “Negotiator” commercial starring William Shatner, and in this one King Shat also plays his own evil twin (you can tell he’s evil because he has a goatee and a skull ring on his pinkie — video below). In it, the Rip Torn-lookin’ Evil Shatner is giving bad advice to a man booking online travel plans when Good Shatner busts through the wall and saves the day. As AdFreak noted, the first YouTube commenter scored a win with this bon mot:
Is he really the “good” twin? After all, he did just cut a hole in the side of that guy’s house to tell him that he could save $80.
This is kind of getting away from the point, but Shatner and Rip Torn were born six weeks apart in 1931. Not only do I want them to play evil goateed brothers in a movie, I want that movie to be The Evil Bucket List. It’d just be two hours of them getting drunk and high and pistol-whipping smart-mouthed teens and stranding hookers in the desert.
Here you go, here’s my $12, I’m watching that on opening night.
