George Takei: Actor, activist and…pizza lover.

Pizza Hut used its sponsorship of Fox’s Super Bowl pre-game show today to roll out a spot featuring the meme master and his inescapable catchphrase, “Oh myyyy.” If you’ve been watching the pre-game commentary, you’ve no doubt seen the ad enough times for its charm to wear off, but it’s still a good use of the high-visibility timeslot.

The spot was made by Droga5. Check it out below, followed by the credits.
