The Cubs ended their 108-year World Series drought this week. Unless you’re a diehard Cleveland Indians fan or utterly indifferent to our national pastime, you were probably pretty pleased about this — who doesn’t like an underdog, after all? — but you weren’t as excited about it as Bill Murray. The lifelong Cubbies fan joined Anthony Rizzo, David Ross and Dexter Fowler for a celebratory song on “Saturday Night Live” last night; watch it below.
Said episode was hosted by Benedict Cumberbatch, AKA Doctor Strange, whose monologue was also of the musical variety. The “Sherlock” star opened with a Barry White–style “aww yeahh” before bragging about his accomplishments for the benefit of those in the audience who’ve yet to familiarize themselves with him: CBE, an Oscar nomination for “The Imitation Game,” devoted fans (better known as Cumberbitches) who wrote unsettling fan fiction.
Leslie Jones, Cecily Strong, Sasheer Zamata and Melissa Villaseñor helped Cumberbatch along in his slow jam — and so, eventually, did Kate McKinnon, who took on Tilda Swinton’s “Doctor Strange” role. Watch the full segment below.
