It's been almost two decades since William Shatner and Heather Burns made April 25 the most "perfect date" of the year.
That's right! Miss Congeniality first hit theaters in 2000, and Shatner and Burns won viewers over with their portrayals of pageant host Stan Fields and Miss Rhode Island Cheryl Fraiser. One of their most memorable scenes was when Fields asked Fraiser to describe her perfect date.
"That's a tough one," the contestant replied. "I'd have to say April 25 because it's not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket."
Fans haven't forgotten about the scene and neither has Shatner. The 87-year-old actor took to Instagram on Wednesday to invite people to share their own "perfect dates" as part of a new campaign with online dating service Match.com.
"Hey Miss Rhode Island, who knew that your response was going to turn into a national holiday? The perfect date, remember? ‘Not too hot, not too cold, just bring a light jacket,'" Shatner stated in a video. "And to think it was 20 years ago that I asked that question…Well, I'm back and I've teamed up with Match to ask that same iconic question, ‘What is your perfect date?''
