Those two yucking jackasses totally ruin it.
wtf japan
I tried to find a DJ-less version, but to no avail. This one at least cut out their stupid-ass commentary before and after the recording.

I want to listen to Shatner melting down, but what I want more is for these morning radio fucks to shut the shit up.
Frank Rizzo
once again, DJs ruined everything.
Urist
Shatner isn't melting down, he knows exactly what he is doing. His parody of the producer was perfect and is worth five stars on its own.
sosage
Exactly. I'll hand out five if someone resubmits a version without the DJ's cackling.

I remember when this was on the radio, Shatner just incinerated this guy. He threw a tantrum, but it was a clever, immaculately professional tantrum. He's just that kind of asshole. You hire Shatner, you get Shatner.

It's the Howard Stern show so they'll cackle like hyenas at anything.

Xenocide
Wells got mad. Shatner got even.

They were both being total pricks, but Shatner was at least clever about it.
wtf japan
I think it important to take into account the fact that Welles was a genius, whereas Shatner, while entertaining, is not.

Also, I don't think Welles was being as big of a dick. His objection mainly concerns the effectiveness of the advertisement: it is so poorly written and composed that no one will want to buy the product. Shatner, ironically, seems to object to the idea that his talent is being wasted on this project in the first place. If he didn't really need this job, why did he take it?

It seemed to me Will's point was more along the lines of; why would the producer think William Shatner needs a pee-brained producer's help when the company is paying him, William Shatner, stupid amounts of money to read the lines. He's just being a big monkey and asserting himself. So, a little bit of column A and a little bit of column B in-that he's being a clever dick-head.

WTF: because Shatner should be able to walk in, do a single take and walk straight out with his cheque. Screw producers and screw communicating your objections like an adult, instead attempt to professionally assassinate the producer by refusing to do a good take.

Damn right this is about asserting dominance.

Spit Spingola
Shatner is a better genius than Welles because he directed Star Trek V.

fatatty
Seems like he's more being a dick than melting down.
Big Beef Burritos Supreme
Jesus. Shatner is an egotistical bastard.
pastorofmuppets
What is exactly that Shatner has done that qualifies him to treat someone like that? Cause I've seen him in Star Trek and it ain't that.

Or is it just that he doesn't understand that directors direct and actors act?
TeenerTot
I'm not in the broadcasting/recording business, but even I would realize that when you hire Shatner, expect to get a "Shaternian" reading. What's the point of spending huge amouts on Shatner, then trying to make him sound different?
That producer should have known better.
And sorry. minus points for the damn DJs.

"What don't you fuckin' understand? Do you have any idear about hey it's fucking distraction to have someone walking behind Bryce in the middle of the fucking scene!"
