PHOTOS: Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender’s Wild Golden Globe Weekend

By now, we’ve all seen Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender cutting a rug, shoulder-shimmying, and putting their backs into it at the Golden Globes after-party hosted by Fox. If you have not witnessed this epic moment that shook Tumblr to its very foundations, feast your eyes on this. (By the way, our spies inform us that they were gettin’ down to Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Mo Money Mo Problems.”)

Yes, it’s already become a meme, with Benny and Fassy photo-bombing various British locales. (See the Radio Times for more.)

And if you want to completely blow your mind into smithereens, just add in their 12 Years a Slave co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor. Our screens are melting from all of the handsomeness on display. (P. Diddy is super-jealous right now.)
