Batman's "disappear into the shadows" routine goes wrong. (SLYT, via)

Ok, that was pretty funny. Three batarangs out of five.

I'm going to analyze the evidence...with SCIENCE!

Evidently this was during Gordon's midlife crisis, when he started dyeing his hair.

I really loved what that video had to say about "Russian Guy Thrown by Garbage Explosion".

It was pretty funny, until it stopped being funny.

They need to learn when to pull it in and finish.

Further lulz. "I'm going to murder every one of you!"

What fivefreakfish said. Sometimes repetition makes things funnier. Sometimes it's just repetition.

It's funny because Batman can't quite disappear and Commissioner Not-Gordon keeps turning around too quickly and seeing him. (Also, Marmaduke is an asshole.)

Roger Ebert need to get out more. I'm all for parodies, but beat up more than just one cliche. The Glenn Beck video was funnier.

Yeah. Went on too long.

That was painful to watch, although the "I'll analyze it WITH SCIENCE" made me smirk. Even if that does sound more like something Dr. Insano would say than Batman.

Anyway, David Willis did this joke a lot better years ago.

Not to be a dick, but I work in a comic book store and I've had this sent to me like 34 times in the last week. Mostly because the Commissioner Gordon character looks just like Counter Monkey Jim here at the shop. Adds an extra layer of HAHA.

I loved how they made fun of Bale's 'Batman' voice.

Jimmy Havok - just curious... do you suffer from astigmatism, or did I just miss something there?

I thought the video was pretty good. Mostly because of the guy who played Batman; he did the growly voice but he did it kind of goofy and I thought it was great.

Thank you, Target Practice. For some reason, I totally thought the post was going to link to that comic. And when it didn't, I tried to google it but, no luck. I only made it a minute into the video.

I read it too quick...I know, I'll blame presbyopia!

I couldn't watch it all, but did find the way Batman held his mouth open kind of spot on.

Commissioner Gordon: Are those fangs?

Batman: You like them? They're haunted.

Whenever anyone asks me about my new glasses, or a shirt I'm wearing, or a bear I'm drinking, my response is now going to be "You like them? They're haunted."

That was funny for the first few seconds until he was yelling directly at that poor dog and now I just want to crush his little shithead face under a brick.

Why don't they just put Marmaduke to sleep?

I liked the Batman parody from Community's Halloween episode. Am I a bird? No. I'm a bat. I am Batman. Or am I? Yes, I am Batman.
