George Takei is amazing! I don’t know why I’m not already following him on Twitter. Thanks for sharing that video, it literally made me cry with mirth. 🙂
My husband has a very strict “one in, one out” policy for social media. I just showed him this, and a Facebook friend had to be booted in favor of George Takei. (Sorry, husband’s high school acquaintance!)
hilarious! i’ll have to follow him. funny story: he happens to live near some friends, and a few years ago on halloween, i was there while they took their children trick or treating. we round the corner, and there he is, standing on his front porch, in his star trek costume, handing out candy and looking so incredibly happy! he seems like such a nice guy.
That’s awesome! It’s always nice to hear stories like this which affirms that some celebrities really are as nice and funny as you’d expect.
