William Shatner, who famously mocks his own willingness to shill for virtually anyone who pays him, can write off his Priceline gig. The brand is killing off his character with a bang (or, rather, CRASH) in a commercial campaign this Monday.

The travel site is planning on downplaying its ‘name your own price’ identity in favor of branding itself as a more all purporse travel booking destination. As a result, “The Negotiator” is no longer needed. So why not exit in dramatic form?

The final scene of this spot sure looks like Shatner is a goner. But if Soap Operas have taught me anything (and they haven’t… except for this one thing:) it’s that one can ever really die if a company wants them back!
