 William Shatner as Captain Kirk

Last night on Conan, the winners of "Conan's VD Explosion" contest, which asked viewers to submit videos of themselves eating a romantic meal, saw themselves served a surprising repast by Iron Chef America's Michael Symon, as well as graced by William Shatner's dramatic, mood-setting recital of Rihanna's "Umbrella" lyrics. The winners, DJ Monopoli and Sabrina Abu-Obeid of Florida, were also treated to a yokel yarn from never-out-of-character Jack McBrayer to close out their Truman Show-esque date. Shatner appears at the 4:20 mark.
