Video of the Day: Holy Commercial Batman

Those who are fans of the old ‘60’s “Batman” show may be surprised to see this video. This was a public service announcement for the U. S. Department of Labor using the Batman, Robin and Batgirl characters. The clever commercial features Batgirl saving the dynamic duo with a message about how women should get equal pay for doing equal work. The commercial is unique for two reasons. For one, the commercial was shot about five years after the TV show had left the airwaves and the “boy wonder” is less boy-like. The other is that while Burt Ward and Yvonne Craig reprised their roles, the caped crusader did not. Adam West does not appear in this commercial but an unknown actor took his part and most people were none the wiser.
