It’s no secret that we at 4 Your Excitement have the utmost admiration for Benedict Cumberbatch.

Who doesn’t though?

Cumberbatch is the perfect combination of sass, class, and charm. The British thespian has been honoured by BAFTA Los Angeles with a Britannia Award for “British Artist of the Year” for his “masterful performances in television, film and theatre,” and been included in The Sunday Times “100 Makers of the 21st Century,” cited as this generation’s Sir Laurence Olivier. This year in April 2014, Time magazine included him in its annual TIME 100 as one of the “Most Influential People in the World”.

As it is Cumberbatch’s 38th birthday, we thought it would only be fitting to celebrate him by doing a gif hunt and more. Cumberbatch has not only given the world some amazing performances but as the avid Tumblr user will tell you, the man is gif awesome.

Without further ado, Happy Birthday, Benny. Here is a gif hunt of reasons and more that show how awesome you are!

Bonus: we could not leave this video out of the celebration. We’d have to punish ourselves if we did.

 

We know what you’re thinking, Cumberbatch as you read this post:
