The newer JJ Abrams version of the crew of the starship Enterprise has one thing over on the original Kirk, Spock, Scotty, McCoy, etc….they all genuinely seems to love one another and have a blast hanging out. (the original cast? Not so cozy behind the scenes). While they were on the set of Star Trek Beyond, as well as the press tour upon its release, the cast clearly had great fun being goofballs together, bonded by their intense love of lip syncing app Dubsmash.
Now, a lot of celebrities love them some Dubsmash, but the crew of the Enterprise takes it to a whole other level. Thanks to the folks at Uproxx, we are now privy to a compilation video of theStar Trek Beyond cast’s greatest Dubsmash hits. You can now watch the entire video above.
The Star Trek Beyond cast left seemingly no pop music era untouched, from the Beatles to Wham! to ABBA to even the cheestastic mid-’80s charity song “We Are the World.” There are even some movie scenes given the Dubsmash treatment as well, particularly by Simon Pegg and Zachary Quinto. Of all the cast, though, it seems Chris Pine and John Cho were the most Dubsmash obsessed, with Karl Urban a close third.
But ultimately, almost the entire cast got their lip syncing action in, including the late Anton Yelchin, whose mouthing of the Backstreet Boys while in the make-up chair is one of the highlights of the whole video (and will also break your heart by reminding you what a fun and awesome guy he obviously was). Considering how good Star Trek Beyond turned out in the end, maybe Dubsmash should be a requirement on all future Star Trek film shoots. It obviously only helped.
What do you think of the Dubsmash craze? Are you over it, or has watching the Star Trek cast have fun with it made you love it all over again? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Anton Yelchin Remembered By Cast
“He was translating, like, an esoteric Russian novel into English, just because that’s what he wanted to do. Eight, nine years later I talked to him and he was still translating it.”
