Video: Bats 'sing' theme to 'Batman'

sdeter@idahostatesman.comJune 25, 2013 

Ever wonder what the "Batman" cartoon and TV theme - you know, "na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Batman" would sound like if it were actually sung by, wait for it, bats?

Neither did this guy.

But after watching a new video spreading across the interweb, I'm hooked.

So here's the deal, according to this gem's YouTube page:

German guy named Ulrich Seidel, who apparently claims to have the only real "Bat Organ" converts bat ultrasounds - which are not audible to human ears - into notes on the keyboard. Then away he goes.

The video was compiled by Sándor Seuntjens from live-action "Batman" and National Geographic footage and the cartoon from 1992-95.

Here it is. Enjoy!
