Sharp's TVs are thin, George Takei is awesome

We don't usually highlight HDTV commercials, but HDTV commercials don't usually feature George Takei in a lab coat. It's for Sharp's new Quattron screens, which aren't only very thin, but have an additional color. Sharp claims that the addition of yellow to the standard RGB in TVs gives it a wider range of color. Of course, that's really the sort of thing we take with a few grains of salt until we can test it for ourselves.

Hype or not, it doesn't take away from the great faces George Takei makes in this commercial. Since when did "Oh, my!" become the man's catch phrase, anyway?
