Star Trek‘s original Spock, Leonard Nimoy stars in the new Bruno Mars music video “The Lazy Song (Official Alternate Version)”. The video released this week by Atlantic Records features Nimoy as a grumpy and (as the title implies) lazy older man laying around his house, walking around town in a bathrobe, buying milk and porn, and flipping off his neighbor, and even watching his buddy William Shatner on TV.
This, you’ve got to see for yourself.

I loved this video. This is just one more wonderful gift from Mr. Nimoy. I have loved his art, poetry, performances all my life. I really appreciated the Nimoy/Shatner bit. I have heard Mr. Shatner speak of their friendly rivalry on many Star Trek documentaries. It was a nice touch to include that.
My fascination with Mr. Nimoy started shortly after I watched Spock’s brain being rebuilt on TV. Mr. Nimoy and Mr. Shatner were celebrity contestants on the $32,000 pyramid (I don’t think it was $64,000 yet) and (as appeared to a 5 or 6 year old) Mr. Nimoy wore his Spock ears on the game show. I lost a bet to my mother that his ears really were pointy. I was just a small kid.
At least 35 years later, Mr. Nimoy remains my all time favorite actor, and even my husband teases me about that.
Mr. Nimoy, you deserve a day like that. You have given so much and blessed so many people.
Let me just say, Thank You and May G-d Bless You abundantly for all you do.
