I guess I just like liking things

My 11-year-old nephew is a huge Lego fan. He has more Star Wars Lego kits than actually exist, I think, and he can put many of them together without looking at the instructions, which boggles my mind.  Standard family practice for birthdays and Christmas has been to see if he’s got a Lego wishlist and either get a smaller kit for him or join forces with other family members to go in on a larger kit.  He still doesn’t have a Death Star kit, as far as I know, so that’s maybe still on the horizon.

When there’s no official list to pull from, an uncle needs to get creative. So the last time out, I went with a Batman kit, because of course I did.  If he’s not specific in the future, he might get Ninja Turtles or The Lone Ranger or something, but there are still several Batman kits to get through.  Poor kid didn’t even know if he liked Batman before he got the Batplane kit I gave him, I don’t think.

So imagine my surprise when I got this video from my brother: a homemade Lego Batman movie. I didn’t intend for it to be Batman Week around here, but I wanted to share this with you because it’s great, and because (as my brother says), my nephew and his sister “are both convinced that if something’s on the Internet, it’s world-famous.” Let’s make this world-famous, shall we?
