Glasvegas - "If" feat. William Shatner (video)

Britain's Glasvegas shares their latest video that features superfan Captain Kirk, a.k.a. William Shatner.

Glasvegas frontman James Allan says about the video, "When we played on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson awhile back, William Shatner introduced our live performance as he is a fan of the band. I then thought it would be a cool thing to incorporate his introduction of us into our new video since it also has a 'late show' theme. We got in touch with him to ask his permission and he got back to us almost immediately to give us the thumbs up!"
