Jimmy Kimmel thinks Benedict Cumberbatch has “the greatest name ever given to a human being,” but he’s not sure if the actor would have the same amount of swag without it. In order to find out, he had Cumberbatch try out some different and somewhat unconventional names. The verdict? Yeah, he’s still cool. (And his Bane impression isn’t bad either.)
The video is great for all the guys out there with unfortunate names (looking at you, Hamburglar) because it gives them a little hope. It’s also good for Cumberbatch because for once no one asked him to say the word “penguin.”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
