barely political the dark knight is confused key of awesome 8 SR Pick [Video]: The Dark Knight is Confused Rap

The popular Barely Political channel on YouTube has a series of hilarious parody videos about geek culture, pop culture and internet celebrities. In their Key of Awesome series – which regularly garners over a hundred thousand views, sometimes in the millions – they put up an awesome music video which pokes fun at the biggest comic book movie of all time: The Dark Knight.

The episode is titled “The Dark Knight is Confused” and stars Batman himself alongside Alfred and The Joker with a funny intro from Commissioner Gordon and his son. This is a must-watch; Batman’s beginning to wonder if his movie makes sense…

Key of Awesome episode #8:

I laughed out loud a few times while watching this and I applaud the folks at Barely Political for their creativity and work put in this and the other videos they have up. And much respect to Mark Douglas who plays all of the characters, nailing some of the voices – especially Michael Caine’s.

Not to get into a debate about The Dark Knight, a movie that is one of my favorites, but I did have problems with several story elements and character moments with Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel, and this video partly touches on some of them in a comical way. What do you think of the video and more importantly, of the points they’re trying to make?

If you liked this video and are into political comedy, check out the official website for Barely Political.

With Christopher Nolan’s next project, Inception, coming out in July, hopefully we’ll hear something about another Batman movie sooner rather than later.

  1. That was funny, but, those plot points that they were talking about were lame, it doesn’t touch the subject as to why this is one of the most overrated films of all time.
    Plus, my favorite superhero movie is Unbreakable.

  2. When it comes to X-Men II and III, I just cannot figure out the reasoning behind killing off everyone. Since the X-Men franchise has never-ever had a movie series, up until now, would not Marvel want to keep everyone around for further economic success? They shot themselves in the foot and face at the same time.

    As for “Batman: The Dark Knight”, I consider it to be a pretty good movie. I do not care about what percentages of the population likes or dislikes the movie. I like some of the realism in “Batman: The Dark Knight”; however, I also think this movie embraced too much of it. I had to watch Michael Keaton’s “Batman” to remember the ‘fun’ nature the franchise was while I grew up. It is a movie about a ‘comic book’. It should be fun and exciting.

  3. I find the video incredibly dumb and unfunny. There are some flaws in the TDK story but none of them were touched on here. He asks questions that make perfect sense in the film yet misses ones that would actually be good questions. How about the Joker explosion in the police station? Why didn’t the guy in the bank spit the grenade out of his mouth?

    Did these idiots really have trouble understanding the end speech which made perfect sense? Batman taking the fall was an incredibly simple concept that even an 8 year old could understand how did they miss out on that? Or the loads of questions involving the Batpod coming out of the battank like that.

    The only funny parts in this video are when the joker pops up the rhyme where Alfred almost says Bruce was funny and talking about The Hurt Locker. other than that it seems like a video made by guys with an IQ under 80 if they missed some really obvious plot points and answers to their idiotic questions.

  4. TDK is not the greatest comic book movie of all time. That honor goes to Howard the Duck!
