Been awhile since I’ve posted. I was watching history channel show about Black and Decker tools. One of the people in the old commercial looked familiar

I don’t see the “Batdrill” label on it.

Welcome back, Chief! This is neat! Any idea what year this commercial was from?

Don't think we've seen this commercial before? Thanks for sharing! Couldn't find it but here is the History Channel segment. Adam at 4:30 and 4:48

If you want to see Adam's commercial in its full original context, you can find it at 31:15 in this 1964 episode of the short-lived "Mr. Broadway" TV series. Adam also did the voiceover too.

That's just an awesome find. What I particularly like is hearing Adam's voice "acting" or "narrating", but not as Bruce Wayne or Batman... exhibits his talents without characterization. Very cool.

Soap box: I cringe when I see old photos likes this, no PPE! I drilled a few holes today using a pneumatic drill and I had on safety glasses and hearing protection. I won't use power tools with eye protection and usually I use hearing protection too.

We now return to our regularly scheduled bat-programming.
