Imagining a different narrator for a favorite song

A couple of nights ago I had the classic Veggie Tales’ Silly Song Dance of the Cucumber pop into my head. (Don’t even bother asking why.)

And after reciting a few lines, I had a wild idea pop into my head. Imagine if Dance of the Cucumber, instead of being interpreted by Bob the Tomato, were interpreted by…

… William Shatner.

Imagine his trademark delivery of the classic lines:

“Watch the cucumber… oh, how smooth his motion… like butter… on a bald… …monkey.”

“Listen to the cucumber… hear his strong voice… like a lion.. …about to eat.”

And the closing line of the verses: “dancing cucumber… dancing cucumber… dancing cucumber… dance, dance… YEAH.”

Personally, I think it’d be awesome. The more I think about it, I wonder if Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki didn’t have Shatner in mind when they did the song… but I may just be humoring myself with that thought.

What do you think?

    having enjoyed his cover of “common people” by pulp and his interpretations of sarah palin memoirs as beat poetry, i can only think that shatner reading this would be killer.

    i think you’re on to something here.
