‘Star Trek’ actor, William Shatner, has arguably made a career banking on his strange nature. Between becoming fluent in Esperanto and releasing an over-dramatic spoken word version of “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ to hosting ‘Weird or What?’ and covering Pulp’s hit ‘Common People,’ nothing that Shatner does should surprise us... so why has his latest release, ‘Ponder The Mystery,’ left thousands of people speechless with jaws agape?

On Tuesday, Shatner released a music video for ‘Ponder The Mystery’, the first track off his new prog-rock album by the same title. In the video, Shatner is depicted wandering aimlessly through the woods wearing a spiffy suit while poetically questioning various truths and wonders of the world.

Images of outer space, historical events, and concrete highways flash in the background with Shatner reciting “The stiff neck of arrogance,” “The harshness of reality and the luxury of fantasy” and “the details of the devil and angelic purity.”

‘Ponder The Mystery’ features former Yes keyboardists Rock Wakeman and Tony Kaye, Steve Vai, Vince Gill, and others.

Watch the video below. What do you think? Is William Shatner brilliant or insane?
