Shatner Steals Our Thunder

Dear Fans of Phil Collins,

Yesterday the principles of “One More Knight” were collectively perusing the trending Internet topics on one site or another when we noticed that the esteemed cultural icon William Shatner was seemingly on the tip of digital tongues everywhere.  Out of curiosity, we clicked on his linked moniker which led us to several news articles touting a Facebook group with the stated goal of getting Captain Kirk nominated for the position of Governor General of Canada.  Publications such as the LA Times, eonline, Wired, and the Vancouver Sun all picked up on this story and while we feel as though those who started this movement are kindred spirits, we can’t help but be a tad bit jealous of their success.

Since March 22nd they’ve amassed 41,000 followers to our measly 94 and  have even garnered a reaction from the man they seek to install into the government of their homeland.  Needless to say, quite the impressive feat. We would expect no less of a group that has chosen such a worthy subject to fill such an important position.  Canadian Governorship is not exactly Knighthood, but it’ll do.

Rather than sit here and stew in a pot of jealousy, this discovery has filled us with a new amount of resolve. We too shall amass a stunning amount of followers and not only will people be talking about our quest to “Get Phil Collins Knighted,” but the people who do talk about us will be important people, like Phil Collins, the Queen of England, and William Shatner. We may harbor a strong desire to make things happen, but needless to say, we cannot do it without your help. Tell your friends across the world of our quest and our facebook fan group and one day you’ll be referring to singer of such great songs as “Another Day in Paradise” and “Mama” as “Sir Phil Collins.”

Thanks for your time and consideration.  Let’s make this happen.

Sincerely,

The good-hearted, good-humoured blokes at “One More Knight”
