Batman’s beginning to wonder if his movie makes any sense at all. In music video form, the eighth video in the Key of Awesome series takes aim at the plot holes of The Dark Knight. Of course, if you’ve been in a hole somewhere and still haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins sequel, be aware this is spoiler filled. Watch the video embedded after the jump, followed by the lyrics.
Behind the scenes:
All characters played by Mark Douglas
Music by: barely jake
Batman! Why is he running, Dad?
Because we have to chase him.
Because he can take it. Because hes not a hero, hes a silent guardian, a watchful protector, the Dark Knight
I dont get it.
Neither do I son, but it sounds cool.
As I ride on my bike at the end of Dark Knight
Theres a few plot points that just dont feel right
Like why the hell did I agree to take the rap
Harvey Dent killed those people. Who gives a crap?
And the Joker pulls crimes in such an orderly manner
He must write it down in an evil day planner
His henchmen are psycho and expendable
Yet somehow completely dependable
And why is Morgan Freeman all pissed at me?
He seemed to resign kind of randomly
Its OK to build me an armored tank-car
But ooh, tapping phones, thats going too far
This movie of my life just doesnt hold together
At least is beats the crap out of Batman Forever
I enjoy car chases, explosions and suspense
Is it too much to ask that it all make sense?
No no Master Wayne, you dont understand
You cant kill a symbol, but you can kill a man
If I want to quit then thats my choice
Were alone you dont have to use that voice
And what about Ms. Dawes its like you just forgot her
In Batman Begins she was so much hotter
Joker, are you busy? Lets call a truce.
I need you to help explain the plot toBatman
Call me insane, but I consider us friends
I brought the DVD so we can watch it again
Ill make the popcorn and pour the sherry
Ooh, maybe we could watch it with the commentary
How does Harvey Dent do total 180?
Well they barbequed his face and he lost his lady
When did you have time rig up both of those boats
Does talking that way ever damage your throat?
Well at least they got rid of Joel Schumacher
You know movie is really good the Hurt Locker
Oh I heard that was good. Ive been meaning to see it.
Whos in it?
I dont know who that is.
He was in Eight Mile.
Oh, he the guy who hosted the rap battles.
No that was Mekhi Phifer.
Joker youre getting white makeup all over the popcorn.
Sorry, Hey did I ever tell you how I got these scars?
YES! Several versions.
Maybe some other people would like to hear the story.
