Incite by Design

I am not someone for whom "campy" is a strong selling point. But whatever William Shatner has, it's easily translated into dollar bills.

Not only has his recent album received loads of attention (with the help of some recognizable collaborative artists), he's appeared on more tv shows and commercials than I care to name. This Shatner phenomenon is about as close to Elvis as we will get with living, trans-generational icons.

Can anyone else think of a celeb that is as campy and successful? The guy is popping up everywhere!

Our particular favorite Shatner moment is the Crest Night Effects commercial - the dreaming?!The dancing?!

What corny icon speaks to you?
