One of the Internet archaeologists over at BuzzFeed dug up this old “Batman” clip in which Adam West conducts a telephone conversation between Bruce Wayne and Batman. It’s awesome — not just for the content, but for the historical value. The carbon dating tests on the YouTube video haven’t come back from the lab yet, but the technology and fashion on display suggest that this video may be up to 150 years old. True fact.
Anyway, I know the old “Batman” series was intentionally cheesy, but that doesn’t subdue the hilarity of this clip. Watch Adam West’s face as he pauses to channel Batman and Wayne in between lines. ACTING!
