William Shatner Sings O Canada (and Happy Canada Day)

There’s something timeless about William Shatner. The man hardly looks his age — 81 — though synthetic enhancements probably have something to do with it. And he hasn’t lost his gift for shtick. Back in the 1960s, Shatner began talk-singing his way through various songs. Perhaps you’ll recall his rendition of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” recorded in 1968, which we recently featured on our list of The 15 Worst Covers of Beatles Songs Ever. A good four decades later, the tradition continues. For Canada Day, eh, we have the Shat reciting the national anthem, O Canada, is his inimitable way. The clip was recorded in 2011 when Canada’s Governor General gave Shatner a Lifetime Achievement Award. Thanks to Denise for the tip.
