Having a bad day? Batkid can help! He’ll get your spirits up in less than ten minutes.
The internet-famous Batkid got the experience of a lifetime two months ago, but it was just for a day. With this video, there’s something to remember it by. The Make-a-Wish foundation has put out this short video about Scott’s Batkid-for-a-day adventure. The retrospective has some great stuff, including behind-the-scenes footage and an interview with the actor who played Batman.
In case you missed it: The “Batkid” is actually five year-old cancer survivor Miles Scott. When the San Francisco-area chapter of the Make-a-Wish foundation offered Scott the chance to make his dream come true, he said wanted to “be Batkid,” whatever that means. When Scott got wish last November, more than 12,000 volunteers helped make the San Francisco into Scott’s personal thrill ride: Batkid and Batman drove around San Francisco in the Batmobile, stopped villains surrounded by large crowds of fans, and received the key to the city from mayor Ed Lee for his efforts.
I didn’t see the Batkid phenomenon make any “big news of 2013” year-in-review stories, which is a crying shame, since it was definitely one of the nicest things that happened last year.
