George Takei Reading '50 Shades Of Grey' Is Just As Odd As You'd Imagine (VIDEO)

"Oh my" indeed! George Takei -- Facebook's favorite meme dispatcher -- is the latest celebrity to get turned on to the erotic bestseller (and Random House bonus provider), "Fifty Shades of Grey."

The actor, best known for his role as Sulu on "Star Trek," took in a fresh cup of tea and the BDSM romp penned by E.L. James in a video posted on YouTube.

"Skin against skin...moving slowly at first... easily, testing me, pushing me," Takei intones dramatically, before adding, "Oh my!"

There's a brief moment of readus coitus interruptus when Takei's husband Brad Altman makes an appearance, adding an unexpected moment of marital reality / more insight than we'd like into Takei's stomach issues.

But it's back to the page for Takei, who reads each erotic passage with growing pearl-clutching fervor and anticipation.

"Oh my! Oh my, my, my, my!"

This isn't the first time an actor has been moved by the passion shared between the removed Christian Grey and submissive Anastasia Steele. Comedian Gilbert Gottfried's reading of "Fifty Shades of Grey" is as hilarious as it is haunting.
