Appearing with arms folded, and garbed in a Jedi robe, the former Captain Kirk informs his audience that he is "a conduit for the ancient forces of nature" as a Shaman warrior in World of Warcraft.

Joining Shatner in promoting the popular online game is the former Mr. T from the popular A-Team, who promotes a new warrior class in World of Warcraft, a Night Elf Mohawk, which comes complete with his trademark hairstyle.
