As we celebrate the release of perhaps the best–or certainly most artistically ambitious (and potentially pretentious) Batman film–I’d like to take the opportunity to remind people of the character’s most ignominious moment: the Batusi.

The Batusi is that silly little mod dance, made famous in the 1960s Batman television show and made famous again by John Travolta and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction.

I wish I could find a video file of it somewhere–just reading the description of the website linked above is enough to make me laugh, but I want, no, I need the full Batusi experience…

The Batusi. Take that, Dark Knight!
