YouTube comedy troupe Key of Awesome has released another hilarious video: Star Trek Slow Jam. The video depicts a romance-deprived Spock as he puts the moves on another woman. Since Spock is known for his monotone voice and scientific way of phrasing things, his sensual moves come off as robotic and awkward, making for a hilarious video.
The music video also parodies slow jams with their cheesy saxophone solos and smooth velvety way of speaking. Spock’s unemotional voice contrasts the cheesy romantic feel of the music, a juxtaposition that creates a hugely comedic feel.
The video does prove that Spock sets up one great date. He gives robotic back massages, beams champagne down to his coordinates and even gives his woman “earth potion” that will make her feel great. As romantic as Spock may be, this video also shows that Spock may sing long but he won’t prosper.
