Remember Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song?” That song about laying in bed, chillin’ in a snuggie, and doing about nothing at all?

Well, there was an alternative version starring Leonard Nimoy and it perfectly showcases the late actor’s lighter side.

In a 2012 blog post, the Spock actor explained why he got involved with the project.

Here’s the deal: I am married to Susan Bay Nimoyand she’s a son named Aaron Bay Schuck. His father is John Schuck who played the Klingon ambassador for me when I worked in Star Trek IV.

Aaron who’s been in my life since he was 4 1/2 is now an executive at Electra and Atlantic Records. So he brought Bruno Mars to the label and started recording Bruno.

And Bruno asked Aaron whether I would perform in this music video for him. So that’s how it came about. I think it is very funny I hope, you enjoy it.
