TIME LORD FUN: The ‘Doctor Who’ Cast Reads Celebrity Tweets and The Greatest Compendium of T-Shirts You Will Ever See
The starring trio of Doctor Who – Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill – were in America this week for interviews and press appearance to promote the show’s new season, and while we love all the insights into where the new episodes will head and just how big and dramatic and awesome it’s going to be, we might love this video even more.
Buzz Feed challenged all three UK stars (two English, one Scottish) to read a cluster of tweets by various US celebrities in their best American accent. Who are the US celebrities. Brace yourselves. Seriously, grab onto something: Snooki, Ghostface Killah and Sarah Freaking Palin.
