What happens when you combine one of 2013’s hottest star and some of the naughtiest lyrics? Well, what you get is a hysterical video.
While making his rounds on the late night show circuit, Benedict Cumberbatch delivered a dramatic reading of R. Kelly’s “Black Panties.” Of course with the mixture of the lyrics and Cumberbatch’s deep voice (and lets not forget all the audience members laughing their butts off in the background) it just makes it hilarious.
Check out the video of the actor turning R. Kelly’s words into something that could be somewhat Shakespearean.

Cumberbatch was on Jimmy Kimmel in support of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug where he plays the elusive dragon, Smaug as well as his hit BBC show, Sherlock.
