Those who prefer the campy version of Batman will probably be disappointed by the forthcoming The Dark Knight, which continues the gritty vibe of Batman Begins. Before you go back to your treasured Batman TV series or, even worse, the 1997 Batman & Robin flick, which temporarily killed the franchise, check out this new video from Hot Chip and director Nima Nourizadeh. Singer Alexis Tayor stars as a combination of Batman villains The Joker and Two-Face — kind of like Prince in the classic and super campy "Batdance" video— with his bandmates and a troupe of partially silhouetted dancers in a series of goofy little set-ups that exist in that sweet spot between clever, meaningless and fun. --> watch "Ready For The Floor"
