In his natural deep bass voice, Takei reads excerpts of "Fifty Shades," while making funny reactions to key parts.
"My friend Gilbert Gottfried recorded a promotion for 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' the best-selling erotic novel. Many fans insisted I'd enjoy a special connection to the book, and that I ought to do an audio narration for it," Takei states at the beginning of the video.
"I was intrigued. So I grabbed a copy to see what all the fuss was about," Takei continues.
The excerpts featured in the hilarious video are some of the steamiest parts, which are punctuated by James' frequent use of the expression, "Oh, my!"
