Remembering: Angry Anderson and the Bat Mobile

Quite possibly the most memorable AFL halftime entertainment performance ever. This took place at the 1991 Grand Final out at Waverley Park, as the MCG was undergoing redevelopment. I really don't know where to begin, I think you just need to watch the video and see for yourself. Angry and Rob DeCastella sitting in the batmobile and wishing the Olympians good luck at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 and good luck to Sydney in their bid for the 2000 Olympics.

It's after the speech has finished that the fun begins. The music starts,Angry takes the mic and screams out "MELBOURNE! LETS SHOW THE WORLD WHAT WE'RE MADE OF!... bound for glory!" If it's not the lack of singing ability by Angry it's the stunned and bewildered look on everyones faces at the performance. It's nice to see Rob DeCastella making an effort to rock out to Angry though. Shame the same can't be said for all the other athletes in their cars, people are either pissing themselves laughing, or looking like they'd rather be elsewhere. At least the Hawthorn and West Coast Eagles bogans rocked out to Angry like there was no tomorrow. "on this Saturday... we're... bound... for glory!"
