If for some reason you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t know, I hate to break it to you but Adam West passed away last month. It’s super sad as he’s done some great voice over work recently and of course he’s the original live action Batman.
I remember the first time I saw him was when I was a kid and saw an old rerun of Batman on TV and he was just running around with a bomb being absurd. The next episode featured him being eaten by shark that he fought off with his “Anti-Shark Spray” and knew that this was like nothing else I had watched. The show was absolutely outrageous but he knew how to play into the campy aspects and make it work. Here are the clips:
There’s not much more to say other than that this was a fantastic tribute showing a bunch of his funniest moments from the show and good on Seth and the Family Guy team for putting this out there and to the city of Los Angeles for shining his bat signal in honor of him. RIP to a great man.
