"It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas" and this famous line that defines the giddiness of everyone as the special day approaches, spills over to the social media world...and in space. Well, at least in Star Trek. Fans of Captain Jean-Luc Picard will surely be familiar with his line "make it so" that he loves to blurt out every so often. Now a video editor had the patience and time to make this famous phrase fit into the lyrics of the holiday hit song "Let it Snow" from numerous episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" for all people who has the spirit of the holidays kicking in.
James Covenant uploaded on December 3 the video "Captain Picard sings 'Let it Snow!'" on YouTube and as of reporting, it has almost 1,450,000 hits with roughly 21,000 likes. Around 260 viewers played Scrooge and gave the video a thumbs down.
Captain Picard's "Make it so" line takes the place of "Let it Snow" in the snippets scenes stitched together to "compose" the song. Another famous line of Picard -- "Shut up, Wesley!" -- was also used with perfect timing. Some odd insertions such as "Tear earl grey hot!" was also punched into the mix.
It was a perfect Christmas jamming in space with Data, Geordi La Forge, Worf, Doctor Crusher, Counselor Tri, and Commander RIker pitching in.
The Let-it-snow-cum-make-it-snow viral video warped into the hearts of YouTube users.
"We really want snow for December! Captain Picard - please make it so," commented a certain Aadel Bussinger on YouTube.
Bogdan Fiedur also praised Covenant for putting the video piece by piece, "I hope this starts getting all of you into the holiday spirit and who can resist the famous Captain Picard?"
Another user going by the name Christopher Tomkinson, said, "You sir are fantastic and your game looks amazing!"
The Star Trek "concerto" lasts for about a minute and after that, the rest of the video was used to promote Covenant's game he calls BlackWhite. The game is a puzzle platform he is trying to develop. The game creator wants to launch a crowd funding initiative on Kickstarter by early 2014.
