Father Builds Child-Sized Batpod For His Kids, Should Probably Avoid Going To The Movies For A Few Years [Video]

Listen, I understand wanting to do nice things for your kids, and that’s great, but I have to imagine that as a parent, the absolute last thing you want to do is give your children something that makes them more like Batman. You know what that dude’s origin is, right? You know how his parents end up, right? I mean, I’m just an uncle, and I can assure you that I have never once attempted to give my nephews any advice about power and responsibility, just in case.

But alas, my thoughts on self-preservation come too late for one father, who has gone out of his way to give his kids one of the Batman’s’s wonderful toys: an “experimental electric vehicle” that is a straight up child-sized Batpod from The Dark Knight.

First of all, I want to mention that these kids have a Batpod and a trampoline, which means that at the age of 31, I am still super jealous on behalf of my younger self.

Second of all, there are two kids (ages 10 and 12), which I assume means that they take turns, where one of them rides the Batpod and the other stands in the middle of the road wearing a purple suit and waving a machine gun going “cmoncmoncmon HIT ME!” in order to challenge his brother’s morality.

Third, this thing looks awesome. According to the creator, (YouTube user eE48v, who also built a “do-it-yourself Segway), “Batpod Jr.” boasts four car batteries and a top speed of 37 miles per hour. So, maybe get Lucius to whip up some armor.

Either way, it’s pretty cool. Just, trust me on this, pal: Do whatever you have to do to make sure your wife never wears pearls to the movies.
