‘Bagram Batman’ educates soldiers and civilians on safety in Afghanistan

The Sideshow

Behold 'Bagram Batman!'

The intimidator, educator and safety enthusiast has a mission: to help keep soldiers and civilians deployed in Afghanistan out of harm's way.

To help Bagram Batman fulfill his destiny, the U.S. Army, along with AFN Afghanistan, has released a series of humorous public service announcements staring the camouflage-clad Dark Knight.

In the 30-second spots, Bagram Batman confronts soldiers on various safety violations around the base, like going running with headphones or smoking near flammable liquids.

After being roughed up, the soldiers say they'll be safer next time. To which Bagram Batman growls in his best Christian Bale voice, "Swear to me!"
