Benedict Cumberbatch's amazing photobomb is now unsurprisingly a meme

It’s called Cumberbombing. Duh.

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH WAS pretty excited to be at the Oscars last night. So much so that he literally jumped for joy. Right behind U2. While they were having their photograph taken.

Naturally the internet’s best and brightest got straight to work with the editing tools, and now we have Cumberbombing – the best Benedict meme since fans Photoshopped Sherlock falling into everything from Riverdance to the set of 300.

He got himself into Ellen’s now legendary selfie:
