  • Oh, hello!

  • [clears throat]

  • Actually, I'm glad you're here

  • because I've got a question for you.

  • Yes, you.

  • You who aren't paying attention.

  • Pay attention.

  • I am Benedict Cumberbatch, actor,

  • and I'm teaming up with Omaze

  • to fly you and a friend out to Los Angeles

  • to attend the world premiere of my next student film,

  • [movie trailer voice]: Avengers: Infinity War!

  • Which, for those of you who don't speak American accents,

  • is Avengers: Infinity War.

  • And 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.

  • "What will 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.

  • And go, actor.

  • I'm a little teapot, short and stout.

  • This is my handle, and this is my spout.

  • When I get all steamed up, hear me shout,

  • Tip me over and pour me out.”

  • Release,

  • and I'm back. Hi.

  • It'll be exactly like that.

  • But the best part of this is that every donation

  • benefits The GEANCO Foundation.

  • Their mission is to save and transform

  • the lives of the poor and vulnerable in Africa,

  • and they're a charity very dear to my heart.

  • So for your chance to help with that great cause,

  • to have tea with me

  • and to win two, not one, but two tickets

  • to the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War,

  • click the link, or go to

  • Benedict.

  • Just once. I was saying that for clarity.

  • Now, if you'll excuse me,

  • I have a little bit more work to do on my warm- up, so...

  • Benedict Cumberbatch.

  • Benedict Cumberbatch.

  • Benedict Cumberbatch broke a delicate luggage rack.
