Pengwings, penglings – Benedict Cumberbatch is just the gift that keeps on giving.
And while we all know he’s a man of many talents, saying the word “penguin” isn’t one of them.
The Graham Norton Show shared footage from Wild Pacific, a 2009 documentary that has narrator Cumberbatch repeatedly mispronouncing the word, which of course went viral.
Cumberbatch has been terrified of referring to the mammals by name ever since, but got his chance at red-faced redemption – a good thing, since he’ll soon be starring in DreamWorks’ Penguins of Madagascar. Because irony.
