Benedict Cumberbatch dignifies the otter meme, delights Internet

Benedict Cumberbatch isn't above playing with a famous Tumblr meme.
The Graham Norton Show

You know who's a good sport? Benedict Cumberbatch is a good sport. The "Sherlock" star has been something of a Tumblr sensation for years, with several memes dedicated to him — the most infamous of which being side-by-side comparisons of Cumberbatch and otters, and to be fair there is an uncanny resemblance. It's something even Cumberbatch himself can't deny, as he humored talk show host Graham Norton's request to create some new ones live on the show.

"When Benedict became famous, one of the first things that happened was — this is so random — his fans decided that he looked very like an otter," Norton explained to a very confused Johnny Depp, who was also a guest on the show. Cumberbatch then provided some new material for the meme, so enjoy this moment, Internet.
