The original Batman spoof

Now you’re in for a real treat. This spoof was filmed way back in about 1995 for Beadle’s Hotshots (if you remember that TV show presented by Jeremy Beadle?). It was all edited it camera, but the researcher on the show, one Edgar Wright – now director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, said he wanted us to reshoot it so they could edit it themselves.

We did, and they ended up not using it anyway. Curses. But it was used a year later on C4’s Takeover TV, presented by Adam Buxton.

Anyhow, I’ve just found the raw footage and edited my own version of this modern day classic. Sit back, relax and enjoy the sheer comedy that is: Batman.

  1. [..YouTube..] Just because Joker did weird breathing in a scene where he’s making fun of his boss in the 1989 film, dosen’t mean he breathes weird all the time 🙁

  2. [..YouTube..] I used to love beadle’s hotshots, i guess it was a bit of a prelude to youtube, can someone upload the grandstand spoof

  3. [..YouTube..] No problem, I’m sure your otherwise ‘action packed’ life won’t be any the worse for the experience.
