Eminem’s “Houdini” video gets massive love from Adam West family

Eminem’s latest music video for the single “Houdini” from The Death Of Slim Shady (Coup De Grace) album is out, and among the millions viewing the banger is the family of the OG Batman Adam West, who loved the Detroit legend’s salute to his work. In the music video, Eminem is back in the ol’ Robin outfit he was wearing back in 2002 when “Without Me” from The Eminem Show album rocketed to No. 1 on the charts.




In a recent conversation with TMZ, Nina Tooley, West’s daughter, said her dad would have loved the video, which in the family’s opinion spoke to the enduring brilliance of the TV show and her father’s version of the Caped Crusader. Nina said while she was watching Eminem’s new video, she could hear her dad’s distinct chuckle when Slim Shady was trying to scale a building with the Bat Rope, just like Adam West and costar Burt Ward did in the series.

Directed by long-running collaborator Rich Lee (“Not Afraid,” “The Monster,” “Venom,” etc.), the innovative “Houdini” video freely calls back to classic Eminem videos such as Joseph Khan’s “Without Me” and Phillip Atwell’s “Real Slim Shady”.  “Houdini” is packed with cameos including Dr. Dre,  Pete Davidson, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Jimmy Iovine, Grip, Westside Boogie, Denaun Porter, Royce 5’ 9”, Paul Rosenberg, The Alchemist, EZ Mil, Ryan Keely, Samantha Mack, and comedian Shane Gillis. The generative AI used in the video was created by Metaphysic, with Jo Plaete and Chris Ume supervising production.

Rich Lee speaks on the video more by mentioning “What if Shady from the 2000s got teleported into the modern day and we got his take on what the world has become…and what if “Rap Boy” was the only person who could stop him? But, 20+ years have passed so there’s a little less stamina and some bad knees. The crazy combination of new tech that made this music video possible. We are in such an awesome time now for filmmaking, and we were able to leverage so much of the great tech we have at hand.”
