George Takei has given pop culture some of its greatest gifts, from his portrayal as Hikaru Sulu, helmsmen of the USS Enterprise on Star Trek, to his beloved catchphrase, "Oh, myyyy..." And with his birthday being on 4/20, we couldn't let the day go by without celebrating some of his greatest moments. Sure he's had a bunch on Star Trek, but we're taking a look at the amazing, hilarious, fascinating moments, videos, and commercials of his after the show that went viral, much to our entertainment.
1. George Takei Reacts to Things
What does George Takei think about dance parties? Or camping? Gravy? See how he feels about a bunch of some of your favorite things, including his Trekkie co-star William Shatner in this video he made for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
2. George Takei Reads Peoples' Tweets
As we mentioned, you can't think about George Takei without thinking about the words, "Oh, myyy", so it's only fitting that we added this video of George reading your tweets with the hashtag #OhMyyy and genuinely reacting to them. Now George himself is pretty hilarious but some of these tweets are pretty great, even on their own.
3. George Takei + Internet + Tacos = Win
If there's anything that goes with George Takei better than a Star Trek uniform, it's the internet. Which is why he was so perfect for the Taco Bell quesalupa commercial that featured internet peeps talking about the majesty that was the hybrid cheese + taco treat. See what George would look like as president, an angel, and laser-eyed dancing king. It gets a little weird...just like the quesalupa.
4. The George Takei Happy Dance
Let George take it back to 2012 when "Sexy And I Know It" by LMFAO was a song we were all rocking to. George puts his happy dance spin on the tune in response to all the donations he received for his fundraising campaign to help produce his musical, Allegiance.
Did you ever wonder where the whole "Oh, myyy" thing came from anyway? George lets us know with this video he made with Tech Insider, and the story is a little naughty...
