Jimmy Kimmel Live! has done it again! The late-night show managed to convince acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch to do a dramatic reading of R. Kelly's highly sexual lyrics in his new song Genius.
Kimmel had both The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug actor and the self-proclaimed "Pied Piper Of R&B" on his Wednesday night show, so he thought it only fitting to have the actor pay homage to 46-year-old Kelly's upcoming Black Panties album. "I can feel your body flowers," Cumberbatch, 37, recites without cracking a smile. "Go to sleep, and when we wake up I'll hit that thing again. Promise."
Kimmel, 46, joked of the performance, "Watch your back 2 Chainz, Cumberbatch is in town."
