Scariest Commercial of the Weekend

Now, mind you, I tend not to watch the Country Music Channel as a rule, but this evening I wanted to see the Johnny Cash tribute concert. And one of the sponsors is Crest, which apparently has a new commercial out, featuring William Shatner... okay, a whole clone army of Shatners doing Irish dancing. In case anyone still in their right mind was wondering, Darren Smith assures us that no, Shatner doesn't know how to Irish-dance, that was his (Darren's) work. Be that as it may, it's a somewhat disturbing image. Given the choice, I'll take Irish dancing by a duck, a vole, and a herd of sheep...
