I just saw the commercial on TV during BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Seeing it on TV, rather than a low res YouTube feed (see yesterday's entry), is revealing. The commercial was put together using exisiting footage from the 1991 movie, with a CGI of Shatner's (2006?) face plastered on his 1991 body. There are 2 short lines of dialogue from Nimoy & Koenig, but mostly it's "Kirk"addressing the camera, professing his pleasure in getting DirectTV installed on the Enterprise bridge.
It's an odd little piece of schilling.
