William Shatner’s excellent Has Been featured his inimitable interpretation of Pulp’s “Common People”, which inspired YouTube user kirkslashspock to create this fun video. Edited together with clips from the classic Star Trek cartoon series, this video also touches upon the infamous Kirk/Spock genre of slash fiction.


This second video uses Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” to imagine a considerably darker Kirk/Spock story, which in many ways quite haunting and beautiful. Spock’s Nosferatu-like pose is particularly cool.
