This CFL Player Wearing Full ‘Dark Knight’ Joker Face Paint Is The Hero Gotham Deserves


Imitation is the finest form of flattery, and even after a decade since the release of The Dark Knight, the great villain performance in the history of cinema is still being honored.

Today, we have the Canadian Football League’s Robertson Daniel to thank for keeping Heath Ledger’s memory alive after the Calgary Stampeders cornerback went all in on Joker face paint for the team’s dogfight 17-16 win.

Speaking of dogfight, very underrated quote: “Why don’t we cut you up into little pieces and feed you to your pooches? Hmm? And then we’ll see how loyal a hungry dog really is.”

Maybe Ledger was looking out for Daniel on this particular night, seeing as the BYU product snagged an interception in the first quarter.

Here’s a closer look at the art.

Robertson, who was spent time on the practice squads of the Raiders, Packers, Skins, and Ravens, was not only making plays on the field, but it appears he conspired to make Batman’s commute more difficult. Is there anything this man can’t do?

Someone call this guy up to the league.

How do you not mention the joker paint one time during this interview. Fire this reporter.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
