I’ve done it a bunch. In involves putting thumb and forefinger of both hands together, extending the fingers, flipping the wrists around, and making a batman mask on one’s face, while shaking booty.
Adam West did it back in the mid sixties, totally rocked it.
Me, I mostly did it because I’m not a very good dancer, or at least there have been occasions wherein I wasn’t very comfortable with it, so I just said f**k it and got down with the funky chicken, or the bat dance, that one I’ve done a lot too, the funky chicken, bird, not mammalian like the bat dance, at all, that one all elbows and knees and flapping.
David Byrne was a freaking master of it.
But Adam West did the Bat Dance, and I did it quite a lot too, not being all that much of a dancer. Well, there was that one time in the parking lot with Shelby and Bob Seger, man, that man knew how to lead and rock and roll and taught me how to skin the cat. It was pretty easy, as he was a big guy and I was a gymnast.
So anyway, sometimes, I dance pretty good.
Sometimes, actually, I can really get down. Funky, too. Sometimes the spirit it just there, it moves me. And sometimes when the spirit is moving me in ways quite rhythmic, it will throw the old Adam West move in there, and elicit a response, same thing with the funky chicken.
Lots of folks know those dances, they’re easy.
You’da thunk a guy like Batman would do some really epic Dancing With the Stars shit, but no, he had to rely on his bat soul, no bat tools would do it.
He did it pretty well.
