What happens with this summer’s hottest musical biopic, Straight Outta Compton, about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-enshrined NWA, meets the hottest movie of DC and Warner Brothers’ superhero lineup, Suicide Squad? I’ll give you a hint, the end result is really, really awesome. A rogue gallery of DC villains being kept down by the man and a dead-on recreation of NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton” video makes for a perfect pair and a spectacular viral video. The Batman Rogues Gallery presents “Straight Outta Gotham.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crECUFkTeLY
The video is the brainchild of Matt Schwartz and Castanet Creative, and it features the bulk of Batman’s villains, and a wealth of references to Batman comic book events. Joker mentions Jason Todd, there’s Bane and The Riddler, Harley Quinn is a video girl, Two-Face mentions Jim Gordon and Blackgate… it’s really just a phenomenal piece of work, and the fact that you have Batman and Robin playing the police from the NWA video in question just makes the recreation that much better.
