When you think of current chart-topping pop singer Bruno Mars, Leonard Nimoy is definitely not the first name that comes to mind. Nor is it the second, third, or fifth, for that matter. That hasn’t stopped him from starring in the unused music video for Mars’ newest hit “The Lazy Song” (currently at #6 in Billboard’s Hot 100).
The song is a nice send up to the “classic” stoner anthems of the mid to late 90’s, with a fun summer twist to it. In this music video, we get a taste of what it’s like to live like Spock for a day, and how hilarious and lazy Nimoy can be, or at least how he wants it depicted.
Some great moments in the video, including a few digs and the ubiquitous William Shatner, and Nimoy’s general disposition to the people around him in the video are pretty hilarious.
Check out the unused, yet official video for the Bruno Mars song after the jump, and be sure to leave Spock alone if you ever see him in public. Oh, and don’t call him Spock.
