Your Heart Will Grow Three Sizes Watching the San Francisco Batkid Movie

Posted By on Fri, Jan 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM

I'm, admittedly, a big softy at heart. Combine that with my love for comic books and my deep appreciation for lengthy, heartfelt YouTube videos and I'm liable to become, literally, one giant smile (which is a grotesque image, I'll admit).

With that in mind, it should be no surprise that I grew a deep appreciation for the Bay Area while I watched the ten-minute-long video recapping Nov. 17, 2013...or as it will be known in the annals of history, the Day That Batkid Saved San Francisco.

The video, released by Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, celebrates the day that San Francisco turned itself into Gotham City for a day in order to grant the wish of five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott — that, for one day, he would be Batkid, sidekick to Batman (that he has the "Bat-" prefix presumably means that he has greater rank than Robin...or that he thinks birds are chumps). 

If you feel nothing as you watch this video (not even a twinge of hope for humanity), it's safe to say that you have only a withered husk where your heart should be.
