So, if you’re having a bad day – today, or tomorrow or six weeks from now – just bookmark this page, so that you can forever have this clip at your finger tips, because it is 100% guaranteed to make you smile.
The Internet’s Favorite British Celebrity – was a guest on The Graham Norton Show this weekend to promote his upcoming Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game. He shared his spot on the red couch with Call the Midwife’s Miranda Hart and Harry Potter’s Timothy Spall, but there’s absolutely no doubt that the Sherlock star is the one who stole the show.
Not that it really matters why, but the reason this all goes down is basically Hart’s fault. (So: Thanks, Miranda!) In her segment, she shows the audience how to do a patented “pop star walk,” made famous by celebrities like Beyonce, and she gets Cumberbatch to give it his best attempt.
Technically, it does not go well. Truthfully, it is the absolute best thing you will see today. Give it a look below.

The full Graham Norton episode airs on November 1 on BBC America, and features not only more information on The Imitation Game, but a special appearance by Cumberbatch’s new wax likeness from Madame Tussauds.
