When Captain Jack Met Captain Kirk

Way back in the ancient days of 1994, William Shatner was promoting Star Trek: Generations, as he was no doubt contractually obligated to do, in the untamed wilds of the United Kingdom. What makes this event noteworthy is that the man who interviewed him was none other than John Barrowman, way before his Torchwood days and way, way before he had a sensible haircut. Barrowman’s questions range from the obvious to the oddly dumb, Shatner acts weird — even for Shatner — and the whole thing is so rote and uncomfortable and bizarre I can barely process it. Of course, I may just be upset because I’m dead certain how much awful erotic fan fic this video is spawning right this instant, but I don’t think anyone could hold that against me. (Via io9)
