George Takei’s ‘happy dance’ reminds us why we love the ‘Star Trek’ star

The Juice

George Takei has boldly gone where no "Star Trek" star has gone before: onto the Internet and doing the "happy dance."

The 74-year-old actor, who played the USS Enterprise helmsman Sulu on the "Star Trek" series and in the ensuing films, was so excited to raise $158,322 for his Broadway musical, "Allegiance," that he got husband Brad Altman to film him busting this move for his fans:

"I'm so thrilled that with the reluctant permission of my husband, Brad, I am going to do what I call my 'happy dance,'" he says in the video.

Bearing the Vulcan salute, Takei shakes his booty for the camera, mouthing the lyrics, "I'm sexy and I know it," as his hubby looks on in horror. We dare you to watch this and somehow not start dancing yourself. You go, George!

Takei, who stars as Old Sam Omura in "Allegiance," helped create the Broadway show that deals with the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
