Have you ever wanted to see Benedict Cumberbatch perform I'm a Little Teapot? Would you like to attend the Avengers: Infinity War premiere? You're in luck! You can watch the former right now as part of the actor's new Omaze campaign and, if you donate to the campaign, you'll have a chance to win the latter. And, even if you don't win, it still helps support a good cause and Cumberbatch performing I'm a Little Teapot is as amazing as it sounds. Here's some of the info on the new Omaze campaign.
"What pairs better than Brits and their tea? You and Benedict Cumberbatch. Also with tea. That's right, you and your luckiest friend will fly out to Los Angeles to join everyone's favorite detective/genius/hero for some quality tea time, complete with everything from delightful conversation to silly selfies. Think this sounds like the best day ever? Take a deep breath, because there's more. Before you part ways, you'll also get tickets for the Avengers: Infinity War premiere, where you'll be one of the first to see the most anticipated movie of the year... all alongside the coolest and funniest batch of heroes. Flights and hotels are on us."
So, since the winner of this new Omaze contest will be having tea with one of the world's finest actors, he decided to put those acting skills to use and give us one of the finest renditions of I'm a Little Teapot you're likely to ever hear. The video also features some delightful acting warm-ups from the Doctor Strange star. It's Benedict Cumberbatch like you've never seen him before and proves that voice of his can make just about anything truly entertaining. Who would have thought a children's nursery rhyme could sound so dignified?
If you decide to donate to the Omaze campaign, the proceeds will benefit Geanco. Their mission is to save and transform lives in Africa by focusing on the health and education of those in Nigeria. Donations will not only give you a chance to hang with Cumberbatch and check out the Avengers 3 premiere, but will also help provide scholarships to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality, orthopedic surgeries to those in desperate need, and maternal and infant health programs. You can donate as little as $10, which will give you 100 entries.
If you're a Doctor Strange superfan, there are some pretty amazing incentives for larger donations. At the top-end, a $6,000 donation not only gets you 60,000 entries to win the top prize, but you also get a copy of Strange Tales #148 signed by Benedict Cumberbatch. There are also several signed Doctor Strange comics at the $5,000 level, if you got some extra cash laying around. To check out all of the perks, you can head on over to Omaze. You can also check out the video of Benedict Cumberbatch performing his rendition of I'm a Little Teapot for yourself below.
