Mr Brainwash explains in the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop that Bat Papi is intended to be the grandfather of the well known comic book superhero Batman. This edition parodies the crime fighting Batman and Catwoman. By creating a family lineage, an ancestry for imaginary characters, Bat Papi and Cat Nana recognize the societal role of cinema and entertainment.
