Star Trek fans ticked off by Shatner's clothes

William ShatnerI'm talking about the clothes he wears in that Star Trek-themed commercial for DirecTV.

Obsessed nerds Trekkies Trekkers have a love/hate relationship with the ad. They love seeing anything Star Trek and love to see Shatner reprising his role as James T. Kirk (who, you remember, died a lame death after fighting Malcolm McDowell in one of the movies), but they have a few complaints:

  • the Starfleet badge is too small
  • the collar is too small
  • the belt buckle is wrong

My main problem with the ad? Shatner's hairpiece looks awful.
