WATCH: Benedict Cumberbatch Performs a Magic Trick

Your dream boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch just proved that he, indeed, is a magical creature not meant for us mortals when he performed a gravity-defying magic trick for Vanity Fair’s channel, The Scene.

Not only did the Sherlock actor school us on the importance of H2O, but Cumberbatch also showed viewers how to manipulate the element to make it do cool things — like have it stay inside an opened water bottle when tipped upside down.

Is it magic? Is it science? Regardless, it’s just fun to watch for us thirst people.
