George Takei’s Sulu wants you to ride public transit
In the future/past of 1984, when we wasn’t busy doing Captain Kirk’s bidding and steering the Starship Enterprise, Mr. Sulu (George Takei) shilled for Milwaukee’s version of Muni. How cool is that? That velvety baritone telling you to buy a bus pass, to ride public transit. Yes, sir.
His connections to the Bay Area include the fact that Takei’s father was born in San Francisco, his mother was both in Sacramento, and he himself attended UC Berkeley for a spell.
SFMTA: Please take note. Hire someone half as cool as George Takei if you want more people to ride Muni.
Last we checked in with Starfleet, we saw Spock (RIP Nimoy) not understanding the concept of exact change.
Hey, Takei’s wearing an admiral’s uniform when Sulu was still a commander. #nerd
Nice of George to plug Milawukee County Transit, but that system had suffered for years under the control of Scot Walker (who later became governor of Wisconsin and tea party darling).
I meant Milwaukee County Transit (dyslexic fingers).
