Part of actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s popularity stems from his unique name (and has even inspired a parody name generator).

So on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, the host challenged the Oscar-nominated Imitation Game star to try out some more generic and celebrity names for size. The actor sits in what looks like a candlelit bar, and introduces himself, in a seductive voice, as Chad, George Costanza (from Seinfeld), Sanjay Gupta, 2 Chainz, Inigo Montoya and more. By the end of the gag, he cannot keep a straight face.

Fans, fingers crossed he plays a “Cumberbaby” version of this game at some point.
