The new Lincoln Motor Company car ad commercial in which Wil Wheaton has a part is now online.
The ad also features hip-hop artist Rev Run and the NFL’s Emmitt Smit.
Part of the ad was filmed at the Vasquez Rocks site, a familiar place to fans of the original series. “Vasquez Rocks — or, as I like to call it, Every Planet Ever In The History Of The Star Trek Universe And Most Sci-Fi Movies From The Fifties — has an incredibly rich film history,” said Wheaton.
Four original series episodes were filmed at Vasquez Rocks (Arena, Shore Leave, Friday’s Child, and The Alternative Factor), as well as several shows from TNG, Voyager, Enterprise, and two of the Star Trek movies.
Wheaton is directing a sci-fi movie in the ad, and a Lincoln car “drives through a movie set in Palmdale, ruining the best performance of an alien ever.”
