Julian Vandervelde, as most who were around him during his football playing career at Iowa, is more than your assembly-line jock, if there is an assembly line for such things.
Vandervelde is a singer, a scholar, and he seems pretty comfortable in front of a camera.
Here, we see the soon-to-be second-year Philadelphia Eagle offensive lineman bursting onto the news set of the WQAD-TV (Quad Cities) in one of the larger Batman costumes you’ll ever see, keeping a straight face as he delivers some jokes.
It’s not the first time Vandervelde has done work for the station, as the second video attests when he interviewed 2012 Iowa offensive line recruit Mitchell Keppy in February.
But first … Batman!
