What do you get when Benedict Cumberbatch is merged with Spike Spiegel? Only the best the internet has to offer.
Ah, Internet, you always amaze us. Take a look at what it has turned up now, for example. Some dedicated fan, who also seems to be quite the Adobe Photoshop addict, has merged random acts of cosplay around Cowboy Bebop’s tragically short-lived Spike Spiegel with the British thespian who plays Khan from the new Star Trek, Benedict Cumberbatch.
If you have not seen him in the intergalactic drama now headed by J.J. Abrams, you may instead remember Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes, where his Dr. Watson was actually that not-so-nice guy who plays Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit. And while Cumberbatch is a bit old for the role of our favorite anime gun-wielder (sorry, Vash the Stampede), whoever did the photo-shopping and the cosplay clearly had the character down:
By the way, while we’re on the subject of Cowboy Bebop, have you noticed how director Shinichiro Watanabe pretty much only makes anime with two male leads and one female?

Anyway, the Internet is not always the best place for finding artistic masterpieces because there are also a lot of people with crazy imaginations and access to Photoshop, including these epic fails...
