He makes fans swoon when he's in a suit so imagine the reaction when Benedict Cumberbatch stripped down in the shower for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? (Worlds collided, basically.)
"The Imitation Game" actor, who was nominated by fellow Brit Tom Hiddleston, was dumped on not once but five times! First, the "Sherlock" star got a bucket full of freezing cold water all over his noggin while sitting down and dressed in a casual tee and jeans; next he dropped trou in the shower (yes, Cumber Collective: Benedict was naked) and was surprised with a face full of ice water; then the actor was taken by surprise when he was talking on the phone and sporting a natty suit; and finally, the 38-year-old used a motorcycle helmet to dump water on himself before a friend (or foe?) threw another bucket on him while he was trying to run to his car. Phew!
The two-minute video wasn't all silliness. In turn, "The Hobbit" actor challenged movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Kylie Minogue and race car driver Lewis Hamilton to either do the #icebucketchallenge or donate $100 to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research.
Other stars who have done the challenge include Vogue boss Anna Wintour, Kate Upton, David Beckham, Nina Dobrev, Katy Perry, Rob Pattinson and Gwyneth Paltrow.
But none of them were as creative as our Benny.
