The best comment on this Video, (IMHO), was the suggestion that in be used as the end theme for the new hobbit movie!

More weirdness from the WU archive:
The origin of the Boy Scout's left-hand handshake
Mad Plan to Unleash Destruction by Bombing Volcanoes, 1944
Kerstin Schulz's Pencil Chair, 2005
That is SO 1960's! I have / had an album titled "Golden Throats" on the Rhino label that is a collection of songs performed by people who shouldn't have oughta done so. Sebastian Cabot (Mr. French of "Family Affair"), Jack Webb ("Dragnet"), Mae West, Bill Shatner and Nimoy were featured among others. You should hear Nimoy perform "If I Had A Hammer" for a real thrill.
For an even better treat, how about Shatner singing "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"?

Compare this with William Shatner's "Rocket Man".
