It’s hard to be serious and comedic at the same time, but in this series of U.S. Army PSA’s about soldier safety on foreign soil, the Bagram Batman pulls it off nicely.

The Bagram Batman is a soldier in a cowl and cape smacking soldiers around for being stupid on a U.S. Army base; his Christian Bale impression isn’t half bad.  The acting is cheesy, but they do what they’re meant to do: they make soldiers pay attention to safety on the job, increasing the likelihood that they’ll actually get to come home in one piece.

It’s goofy fun, and serious business all at the same time – and it’s actually paid for and produced by the U.S. military.  Your tax dollars at work, and Batman saving lives.  Kind of an odd way to do it, but it works for us.

Have a look!
