My love for this vid is EPIC. Almost as epic as Kirk's befuddlement! I saw it in the auction vidshow, and when it started playing I was surprised and pleased at what a terrific reversal it is of the usual representation of Kirk... and then Spock started raising his eyebrows at how SLOW Kirk is and I started laughing too hard to think. The idea's terrific on its own, but your comic timing is impeccable -- and essential to the vid's hilarity. Just wonderful.

And speaking of comedy, we also watched part of "Holding Out for a Hero" in the Ultimate Vidsong panel and thus scientifically proved that I will NEVER get tired of that vid. Thank you for that too. :)

LOL! This is hilarious. Kirk's all swagger and no clue.

Fantastic concept! I laughed so much. XD

P.S. Uhura's facepalming is an inspired clip choice, haha.

Lol, oh, this is too cute for words. I love how you gradually make it clear where he's going to get his "instructions."

SO MUCH LOL! I actually just watched Amok Time, and this fits so perfectly with how Spock is like, "It is PERSONAL, okay, get it??" and Kirk is like, "No! Explain it to me! In excruciating detail!" Anyway, and I loved the ending!!!
