EDIT: lots of people posting this video are claiming it's really Werner Herzog. It's not. I never thought anyone would think it was. Sorry for the mixup!

Also, it's spelled "hilarity."

Despite being a spoof, that Herzog video is genius.

"Generic funny german voice" does not equal "Werner Herzog impression".

I don't get it.

Maybe I'm just old school, but I like my William Shatner either sing-talking or overacting.

Also, the musical tour that would be le petit mort for me would be Lady Gaga, Ben Folds and William Shatner. Two talented pianists, and a man who doesn't know what singing is.

I thought that Herzog one was pretty funny. I didn't get the other one, nor why they might be related.

Anazgnos, they are doing some things that makes it more of a Herzog impression, but they're doing it a little wrong. The voice should be lower and slightly more gruff. Also Herzog will eloooooooooongate one word then make the following words very short. And no Herzog impression is complete without somehow inserting the phrase "since the dawn of time man has been obsessed with (X)." I would have gone with "since ze dawn of time, monkeeeys have been obsessed with eeether."

You must never listen to this.

That's a really lame German accent attempt. Just really fuckin mediocre. And as far as how it relates to the Shatner/Winkler thing, I've no idea.

I think this post is stupid and you've wasted my time, that's what I think.

Flapjax at midnite thinks that posts should be happy and full of light. He is wrong. They are full of darkness and suffering.

Curious George once rode on a rocket, and Shatner famously recorded "Rocket Man"?
On Star Trek, Shatner portrayed his brother George (albeit dead) in one episode.
CG author H.A. Rey and Shatner were/are both Jewish?
Shatner and Herzog are actually the same person?
Captain Sulu George Takei was Bi-curious before he was gay?
Am I close?

Flapjax at midnite thinks that posts should be happy good and full of light good. He is wrong sometimes, unfortunately, disappointed.

The clue is in the incorrect spelling of "hilarity".

I happen to find misspellings funny, so that is not a good clue.

For an excellent Werner Herzog accent, try his blog.

In the plate of beans, Timothy saw nutrition and the culinary intuition of the cook. When I look into the plate, all I see are seeds from plants, killed at their prime to feed ungrateful humans. Life continues to kill life to survive; the cycle continues.

Aguirre, Wrath of God, and Wrath of Khan. The answer is "wrath"?

Henry Winkler is old.

I was happier not thinking about that fact. Seeing the fact has left me tired. My body hurts. I think I'll go to the kitchen for a nice glass of milk. You can talk amongst yourselves, but stay off my lawn.
