Come On People… Do The Batusi!

A strange thing happened back in 11th grade, when my friend Tim Hughes and I were in English class– we got bored. Big surprise, I know. Anyway, we then started BATUSI FEVER. The full origin story is here and the actual site is here. If you want to watch a video of the dance, I linked to it here.

What is the Batusi? It’s the infamous dance performed by Batman in the Sixties, when the Dark Knight was portrayed by Adam West. Classic stuff. I’m actually surprised at how much I wrote about the dance at the ‘Fever site. I was sort of funny back then!

I’m writing about this because it turns out that celebrity Ken Jennings linked to the site in a recent blog entry. Well Ken, if you’re reading this, thanks for the exposure! I guess I’m going to have to update the site sometime soon!

This just in: I’m also the main site listed in the Wikipedia entry about the Batusi! Wow!

    I’ve been trying to find the friggin’ song that Batman dances to under King Tut’s spell in one of the 60s Episodes.

    He falls under the spell through sand torture. Batman is in huge vase with only his head sticking out and a drop of sand hits him on the head. Apparently its supposed to break you but Batman beats it by multiplying backwards (WTF!?!).

    It’s nowhere on the soundtrack and I can’t seem to find it. If you know anything about the tune, drop me a line. Thanks.

    No, but now that you mention it, I’ll probably never stop searching for the rest of my life! I remember that episode too! Damn, I want DVDs of the show.
