Adam West Nestle Quik Commercial

Here’s a great blast from the past.  The commercial that started it all!  Producers developing the classic Batman series saw this commercial and the dry wit of Adam as Agent Q, and decided to invite him for a screen test.  The rest is history.  Enjoy!

    Who would ever have thought that a simple commercial spot would be the break that Mr. West was looking for in getting him one of the most memorable roles of his career. It is truly a unique commercial and even by the way he is dressed you can see the similiarity for the character of Bruce Wayne. Congratulations Mr. West on becoming tv’s Batman. I know that it was a stumbling block for a portion of your acting career but I want to tell you this. I can NEVER imagine anyone else EVER portraying the role of tv’s Batman. It was truly meant for you. Burt Ward was the perfect Robin. Both of you complimented one another. NO ONE ELSE could of pulled it off as well as you both did.

    Great commercial, Adam! Just wanted to say thank you for signing all the books I ordered. Just got a call from my nephew & brother – they loved them!
    Many thanks… You’re the Best!

    I remember this commercial!

    Not too many actors would have taken roles like this and like Batman, then been able to camp them up the way you did.

    Batman’s gain was Bond’s loss. Suave and smooth, yet with tongue firmly in cheek, I think you’d have been brilliant as Matt Helm in Dean Martin’s Matt Helm movies.
