Arnold Schwarzenegger YouTube Pastiche 'Batman And Robin: The Musical' Arrives Online (VIDEO)
1997's Batman And Robin is a terrible, terrible film. All bat-nipples and bat-crotches, manic punnery and unwanted cartoonishness, it's a million miles away from Tim Burton's work, and about a million billion miles away from Christopher Nolan's.
Pretty much everyone suffered from it. Joel Schumacher was cast out into the directorial rubbish bin, Clooney had to claw his way back into Hollywood's good books, and poor Chris O'Donnell has never been the same since. As for Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played the big bad Mr. Freeze, well... he was alright, in part thanks to his $5 million pay cheque.
But today, today they can be proud of themselves once more, thanks to YouTubers Jon and Al Kaplan's Batman and Robin: The Musical. They're the guys who previously brought the internet the wonders of Conan the Barbarian: The Musical, Commando: The Musical and Predator: The Musical, so you know they're good.
Boasting an Arnie impersonation that borders on the insane, as well as rhymes that would make professional limerick crafters scream in pain, it's a joyful bit of silliness that'll have Arnie fans grinning from ear to ear.
So here it is, Batman and Robin: The Musical, heading up our Kaplan brothers best of video gallery - but be warned, this first video contains a worrying number of codpieces. There, we've said our piece.
