The Late Movies: TV Batman Window Cameos

Jerry Lewis was the first guest star to pay Batman and Robin a quick visit. Sammy Davis Jr. was holding dance rehearsal when the crime fighters scaled his wall.

The Late Movies: Nike’s Slo-Mo Golf Ball Videos

In 2008, Nike put together a series of slow-motion videos in which golf balls were shot through various objects. The project, called “Nike Golf Juice Ball,” is surprisingly not very heavily Nike branded — it’s mostly about crazy slo-mo. Of course, they’re trying to sell their “juice ball,” so perhaps I’ve just played right into [...]
