    There are many reasons George Takei was my inspiration as an actor since childhood. This isn't one of them. :)

    I liked him better when he was shilling for monorails.

    At least he's shilling for public transportation rather than the big box store in the Galaxy Quest example.

    Still, not exactly his career's shining moment.

    Does his career have a shining moment except for playing Sulu?

    Hiro's dad was pretty badass. Too bad "Heroes" wasn't after its first season.

    I thought that when he's on Earth, he steals a helicopter.

    I live in Milwaukee. I'll never ride the bus again without thinking of Sulu!

    Takei was a member of the LA transit board - maybe during the time he did this spot, too - so his interest in public transport was genuine.
