Advertising For Dummies: Where no Taco Bell commercial has gone before (2016)

As Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, George Takei, who was the swashbuckling Lt. Sulu, has reinvented himself as a campy commercial pitchman. First, it was for Samsung a few years ago. Now, it's for Taco Bell, as he's shilling their new Quesalupa, which, in case you don't know, is a merger of a quesadilla and a chalupa.

Edit: 5/20/16: This copy has the ad airing twice. The original video was deleted.

By the way, George, Dick Enberg might want to talk to you about "Oh, my!" as a catchphrase. Dick's been using it longer, and still does it today as the voice of the San Diego Padres.
