Set phasers to "speechless"

If you haven't seen it yet, take some time out of your day to witness a musical milestone.

Take Taiwan's answer to Susan Boyle, Lin Yu-chun, whose version of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" recently took the internet by storm.

Add the famously tune-challenged William Shatner, of Star Trek fame. Throw in that over-the-top ode to 1980s musical excess, "Total Eclipse of the Heart."

The result is a pop culture moment you won't easily forget. One blogger called it "the greatest collaboration since Lennon met McCartney." It may also be a sign of the Apocalypse.

Whichever the case, Taiwan's media lapped it up proudly, replaying the duet Friday and noting another triumph for the unlikely singer they've dubbed "The New Glory of Taiwan" — and "Little Fatty."
