“Cumberbatching” your walk goes viral

Can you walk like an old Harrovian?

Sherlock and The Imitation Game star Benedict Cumberbatch was on The Graham Norton show last week, and among all the penguin pronunciation fun and waxwork photobombing he demonstrated his take on a popstar walk, a la Beyonce.


In case you can’t quite grasp the image, it looks a bit like this:

All good fun – and now it’s looking like “Cumberbatching” in this manner has rather caught on over on Twitter, with many fans offering their own interpretations of the stylish walk as part of a competition run by a website called SideShow collectibles.

And we have to say, certain entrants have really nailed the Cumberstride.

Some did it with their pets

Some even got their kids involved

And some were just a bit strange…


Strange stuff – still, be honest, we’ll all be trying out a new walk on our way home this evening…
