Never before have nursery rhymes sounded this classy.
In a campaign for online fund raising platform Omaze, Benedict Cumberbatch recites I Am A Little Teapot as he offers participants a chance to attend the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War and join him for tea. The third in Marvel’s Avengers series, which brings together a team of the franchise’s most popular superheroes, Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to be released on May 4.

“Seeing as, well, we’ll be in LA at the same time, it’s the perfect opportunity for us to meet for tea and delightful conversation,” he says in the video. “What would it be like to have tea with an actor, you ask? Well, I’ve prepared a short monologue for you that should make things quite clear.”
Cumberbatch goes on to render I Am A Little Teapot with theatrical flourish, giving it the air of a Shakespearean tragedy.
