Pharrell Williams interviews Spock

Pharrell Williams interviews Spock

As part of a creator series of interviews called "ARTST TLK", the multi-platform artist known as Pharrell Williams has brought aboard none other than Leonard Nimoy for a chat.

Audi Spock vs Spock continues Star Trek crossover advertising

As it was with the Acer Enterprise-esque spot that turned out to be a rather strange Windows 8 computer by the name of Aspire R7 last month, so too do the stars of Star Trek appear this week in a video spot for Audi.
