Batman Easter Eggs in "On My Way" - Music Video

Post by Scott Sebring » Sun Dec 08, 2019 12:51 pm

Very excited to share the release of my fourth album "Tales of the Retro Rocket Roller" with the premiere of my latest music video "On My Way." Co-directed this with Ben Bentley who shot all the principal footage. We had a blast making it. Hope you'll enjoy watching and listening.

If you think this is off topic, watch the video first. Then, let's discuss how much of the on topic stuff you could find. :)

I can't tell you how much fun it was to collaborate with one of my best friends on this project and getting to throw in so many Bat-nods was the icing on the cake! I'm so proud of this video and yet another really great record to boot.

Believe it or not the live-action sequences were shot in less than four days - I landed in LA on the Thursday and by the Monday night we had the majority of the footage you see here in the can. I'm still tired now I think ;)

So great! Did you really have a Futura replica or is that post-production magic?

Fun video with all the Batman references. I count at least 9, and did you forget the Batusi??? I'm guessing the Futura is the Minichamps 1:18 scale model? You guys, Scott and Ben, did a great job performing, filming, production, directing & editing!

9? Hmm. Pretty cool. I wonder what your breakdown of them was. PM me as to not get into spoilers too soon on the thread. lol.
Batusi didn't make the cut this time around sad to say.
And no, it wasn't the Minichamps though I wish I had one.
And most of all... thanks!

From one working musician to another here, this was pretty good Scott! I really liked it.

Anyone find more than 9 Bat-Easter eggs?

I had to double check the math myself... ;)

That was a lot of fun, Scott. Well-done. Catchy hook, too.

Thanks High C. And good catch!
The font is "AdLib" which is a handy font for any batfan to have.

I think I found all nine.

I don't think this was intended as one, Scott, but when you tapped that old change dispenser at the 2:18 mark, it reminded me, for some reason, of a scene in which Pengy makes a call from a pay phone and is positively giddy when he pulls the lever and gets his dime back. :lol:

That wasn't intended but I like it.

My personal count is closer to ten or eleven if I start splitting hairs to the specific elements, nods and references.
Feel free to start listing you findings, folks. No worry about spoilers now.
