Batman’s worst enemies show their sensitive side with One Direction parody
Unlike ‘Gotham,’ we’d actually watch this show.
Utah-based KFaceTV is a relative newcomer to the YouTube nerd scene, but their painstaking high-quality parody music videos of Harry Potter, Zelda, and other geek hallmarks have racked up 12 million views in 15 months. Now they’ve aimed high—Bat Signal high—and set upon their team of singers, fellow YouTubers, and cosplayers from Cosplay Utah the hefty challenge of parodying every onscreen iteration of Batman ever.
It probably says more than it should that we’ve learned about these villains’ motivations in these four minutes than we have in a whole season of Gotham. And can we get a whole tour of this now, please?
