Do It Vulcan Style, Baby

By GotDesign
One of the most effective techniques of comedy is to take something that is widely know and accepted -- and, if possible, well integrated into the culture -- and give it new or different attributes such that the difference created is comic.

Case in point: G4 TV -- the technology and gaming network -- decided to broadcast the original Star Trek television series with some additions. They added a scrolling chat dialog at the bottom of the screen, list the number of times Cpt. Kirk's shirt gets torn -- you know, take advantage of the campy nature of the old series.

To advertise this re-issue of Star Trek, G4 got an advertising campaign that featured the stop animation of Star Trek action figures. You have to see them! Check out the links below.
