It’s Elementary, Sherlock, But Benedict Cumberbatch Can’t Pronounce ‘Penguins’

1 minute read

Reddit has been getting a good laugh out of a video of Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch mispronouncing the word “penguins” as “pengwings” or “penglings” over and over again.

The 18-second YouTube clip has been taken from the 2009 BBC Two documentary he narrated about wildlife, like royal penguins, on the South Pacific islands.

As Reddit users have joked, here’s hoping that he pronounces it correctly in his upcoming film Penguins of Madagascar, out in theaters on November 26.
