William Shatner recently released his brand new album Shatner Claus: The Christmas Album.
The record features the Star Trek legend’s take on a variety of festive favourites, with the actor bringing in a host of guest stars to make the collection sparkle.
The promo stars with Shatner reading the story of Rudolf in front of an enraptured crowd – before it all kicks off, with Shatner taking to the stage in sunglasses and a sequinned cheetah-print suit, while Gibbons gives the party a blast of blues.
And yes, there’s a reindeer in the video, complete with glowing red nose, and I think I saw a dancing gingerbread man.
Other guests on Shatner Claus: The Christmas Album are Todd Rundgren, Ian Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Brad Paisley, Judy Collins, Mel Collins, Artimus Pyle, Joe Louis Walker, Elliot Easton and Dani Bander.
