Most of you Internet veterans out there are already familiar with the phenomenon of real-life superheroes. Oddee featured ten real-life superheroes back in 2007, Rolling Stone had an excellent article about the subject this past winter, and the World Superhero Registry is a well-traveled destination for those needing to know more about local vigilantes.
However, this is the first time I’ve ever seen a real-life superhero (NOTE: hero may not be super) featured on television, and… hoo boy. This is either a news report about Cincinnati’s “Shadow Hare” and his team of tubby friends or a pilot for a sitcom. Seriously, if you asked Michael Schur of “The Office” to make a news report about real-life superheroes, you would get this. Check out the look the sheriff gives the camera at about the 1:50 mark. This video needs to go straight to the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
