WILLIAM SHATNER BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY VIDEO

Two teens are stargazing in a field when a white mouth appears in the sky. The mouth belongs to the giant star spangled face of William Shatner sing-speaking "Bohemian Rhapsody," as originally written by Queen.

"Holy--" the girl says.
"Shatner." finishes the boy.

Though his precise delivery makes it easy to understand what he's saying, the lyrics appear in block letters below his face, just in case. We fly into the planets and through the galaxies as constellations appear and sing-speak back to Shatner as they glide across the screen.

The kids look scared. But it's just Shatner being Shatner, in all his acid-trip, expressive eyebrow-faced glory, guys. The song comes off of Shatner's new space themed covers album, "Seeking Major Tom." The 20-track album also includes Shatner's classic "Rocket Man," as well as "She Blinded Me With Science," David Bowie's "Space Oddity," and more, with guests ranging from Lyle Lovett to Sheryl Crow.
