Five months after Priceline.com decided to resurrect its spokesman/Negotiator, aka William Shatner, the brand (along with Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners?) has revealed that the Shat has a secret daughter in a new spot that takes us from past to present day. Playing the next-gen negotiator is one Kaley Cuoco, the female lead in The Big Bang Theory, which is now on a hundred times a day for reasons unknown. As for this spot, meanwhile, we had no idea monks could also moonlight as deal-makers, but let’s indulge this brief reunion for a minute, shall we? Credits forthcoming.

Odds are, you’ve heard your partner-in-crime/art director say some weird crap over the years (or show their affection in the most permanent of ways). Successful creative types tend to be a little eccentric. That’s just sort of what happens.
But, when was the last time your art director looked deep into your eyes, maybe rested his or her hand on your shoulder, and said, “I think I’m swollen. Will you feel my glands?” Well, some anonymous copywriter might be vying for a television contract under the Twitter handle @shmypartnersays. While this might not get a William Shatner-starring show on prime time, it could at least get a streaming webisodic treatment. We nominate Randy Quaid to play the hilarious art director. The dude needs work…any work at this point.
Anyone have any idea what Chicago copywriter/art director duo this might be?
