Sir Ian McKellen Likes Big Butts (And He Cannot Lie)
by Kay Honda
In this hilarious, two-minute take, YouTuber hunterdavis nails a vocal and physical impression of iconic British actor, Sir Ian McKellan. But he doesn’t exactly go about it while reciting Shakespeare.
With Peter Jackson’s new Hobbit movie on the way, this dramatic interpretation of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” as delivered by “Sir Ian McKellen,” seems appropriate.
Now that the video has gained over 30,000 views in three days, more people than ever before can know exactly how Gandalf the Great would sound if he liked big butts and couldn’t lie.
Because haven’t you always wanted to know?
