Star Trek Into Darkness comes into theaters on May 17th, so what better way to promote it than an ESPN commercial starring one Stephen A. Smith?

Actually, wait. There are a gajillion better ways to promote this movie than by subjecting us to seven Screamin' Stephen A's. Although, really this commercial isn't all that special when you consider Stephen A. Smith appears on ESPN and ESPN2 at the same time multiple times a week.

Trekkies will flock to the premier regardless, but the last thing we need more of is Stephen A. Smith. Unless it's Jay Pharoah doing Stephen A. Smith that is.
