The United States Army has a new weapon in the battle against lazy military safety.

Proving that there can be a sense of humor when it comes to military safety, this new series of safety PSAs features a camouflage-clad Batman keeping an eye on things on a military base. When he sees something that goes against basic military safety, the Bagram Batman springs into action. Hilariously I might add. From the gravelly Batman voice to appropriate lines from the Dark Knight trilogy, these videos prove that a little humor can actually go a long way in educating people on proper procedure and being safer while in the line of duty.

The US Army/Batman PSAs were created specifically for enforcing safety rules in Afghanistan military bases, and there are a half-dozen videos in the series, all of which end with the classic Dark Knight line, “Swear to me!”
