'Batmanning' clip makes Purdue students Web stars

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Four Purdue University freshmen are getting a lot of attention for just hanging around. Upside down all around campus, that is.

The friends hatched the idea a couple weeks ago to make a video of themselves hanging from their feet and then posted it on YouTube. By Friday morning, their "batmanning" stunt had been viewed more than a half million times.

The video shows them hanging from spots such as Purdue's Amelia Earhart statue, parts of Ross-Ade Stadium, a set of wrought-iron gates and inside a parking garage.

Batmanner Chris Ganz tells the Journal & Courier that the stunt isn't that difficult to pull off once one's feet are hooked into place.
"Preserving and protecting the principles of the Constitution is the primary role of the federal government."
