1. To deliberately produce something so bad it's good. Creating something genuinely campy would be the perfect shatnerization. While not quite as unachievable as exceeding the speed of light, perfect shatnerization is as difficult as bowling a perfect game.
(Note: This does not infer that Shatner's early musical works are deliberately campy. They do, however, set a standard.)

2. To parody yourself (a la William Shatner's commercials for Priceline).
The "How Berkley Can You Be" parade is a day for Berkleyites to shatnerize themselves.

Newsweek: Doesn't it bother you that your version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" is a camp classic?

William Shatner: ...yes, in the beginning it bothered methat people singled it out and poked fun at it. They didn't know what I was doing. The album, "The Transformed Man" is much more extensive than that song. But since people only heard that song, I went along with the joke.

Newsweek: Uhh...OK Bill.

Women who have veered from the work force into raising chickens, growing vegetables, and canning. A DYI locavore
My femivore friends may never do more than dabble in backyard farming - keeping a couple of chickens, some rabbits, maybe a beehive or two - but they're still transforming the definition of homemaker.

A cute alternative to the term Hummer house or bulky house for a ginormous house built on the site of a former site of a teardown that towers over its neighboring houses.

That husky house is five times larger than the bungalow next to it.
