Oscars 2014: Benedict Cumberbatch photobombs U2, inspires hilarious meme

Benedict Cumberbatch has won the Oscars, and the internet.

Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch photobombed U2 in one of the most spectacular moments on this year’s Oscars. Cumberbatch, who is presenting at this year’s Academy Awards, launched himself behind the band as they posed together on the red carpet.

And to think, we didn’t think that the internet could love him anymore than they already did.

Here’s the original photo, where Cumberbatch can be seen doing one of the most spectacular Oscars photobombs in years:

And here it is, with some improvements (because is there anything that can’t be improved with a little more Benedict Cumberbatch?)

Unfortunately, there wasn’t an epic photobomb entry on our Oscars 2014 drinking game (but you still have to drink if someone makes fun of Cumberbatch’s name). Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence made headlines earlier in the night, when she fell…again. Lawrence is nominated tonight in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in American Hustle. See a complete list of winners and losers, and see how our Oscar predictions matched up.
