Honestly, I have no idea how Bruno Mars got Nimoy to star in this music video, or if it was filmed before Nimoy retired, or what. All I know is that I don’t care because it is totally fucking awesome. Honestly, the fact that he’s wearing a shirt with a tiger on it and yet has a giant tiger painting over his couch cracks me up more than just about anything, other than the fact that he went to the store solely to buy milk and pornography. I doubt Nimoy’s life is really like this… but… but god I wish it was. Infinite thanks to Adam M. and everyone else who sent in the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
