William Shatner reads Levi Johnston's tweets on 'Conan'

Posted on

Ah, the sweet, sonorous voice of William Shatner. It has tempted us to the darkest depths of space, borne us through the perils of justice, and…well, I never know quite what to say about this.

And now Mr. Shatner’s golden pipes have performed another feat of pop culture alchemy: Turning Levi Johnston’s tweets into beat poetry. Those of you who saw Shatner’s masterful performance of Sarah Palin’s resignation speech in July will recognize the format of Shat, a bass, and a bongo. So simple, so right. Check out the clip below.

UPDATE: It turns out that the Tweets read in the following clips were actually from a Levi Johnston impostor, so read with caution. Shatner returned the following night to read Johnston’s real Tweets.
