Classic Commercial: Batgirl Fights for Equal Pay

While everyone has been breathlessly awaiting the arrival of Spider-Man 3 this Friday, I came across an old commercial from 1974 for the Federal Equal Pay Law featuring Yvonne Craig as Batgirl.

In the 30-second spot, Batgirl comes across Batman and Robin all tied up, yet before she helps them, she speaks her mind about getting paid the same as Robin since they do the same labor. I think this ad is super cool, and unfortunately it's something I just don't think would air on TV today.

Best line: "Holy Act of Congress!"
