Geek Cred: Established...

Mopar sent this in. It's also been all over Facebook, but just in case you hadn't seen it, here it is in all its geeky glory:



Yeah, I know, it's a commercial for Audi, but it's got it all - the obligatory "Hobbit" reference, Trek 2 ending, Vulcan nerve pinch, and even "fascinating". I have no idea what possessed them to set up the two actors who have played Spock for this set-up, and the only drawback I can see for Audi here is that this will become known as the "Spock Commercial" that everyone remembers is about a car, but which one???

It's still geektacular enough to share...

That is all.

For the younger folks who might not get "the obligatory Hobbit reference," here's an instructional video.

I love a reference to Nimoy's song of the 70's or 80's....

It's much worse.... I mean better when he sings it.

Real Kirk (Shatner), Real Spock (Nimoy), same scenario = hilarious except it's Kirk that gives Spock the Vulcan neck pinch.

Took me awhile to get that the younger guy played Spock in some movies I've never seen and don't plan on seeing.

Hee Hee! The Hobbit reference is the icing there.
