Actor William Shatner has filmed a funny and informative public service announcement for insurance company State Farm in regards to the dangers of turkey fryers, which will be put to much use next week for Thanksgiving.

“Hi, I’m William Shatner and I love fried turkey. So join my fryers’ club. But turkey and oil are a dangerous combination, so watch this video … I want to know how you plan to keep yourself, your family and me safe from turkey fryer fires.”

“That fryer took so much from me. Mostly arm hair, a little skin. But it gave me a healthy fear. Fire, metal, oil, turkey are glorious when in harmony. But their power is unrelenting in careless hands.”

Heh. Shatner’s such a good sport about doing silly things. Love it. And hey – be safe this Thanksgiving, turkey fryer or no turkey fryer.
