Would you pass “The Chocolate Cumberbatch Temptation Experiment”?
Or would you fail, along with the many unsuspecting nibblers captured on film by hidden cameras, who licked the life-size chocolate statue of Benedict Cumberbatch and lived out all of their wildest fantasies?
The 6-foot statue, known to some as Benedict Chocobatch, is made of 500 bars of Belgian chocolate, but that’s not even the most irresistible part — the confection is constructed in the British heartthrob’s likeness. The statue, displayed in the middle of London’s Westfield Stratford mall on Good Friday, was surrounded by covert cameras to catch mall-goers who couldn’t resist a taste of Cumberbatch.
Kids broke off fingers, ladies licked his arms, police dogs sniffed his feet, friends snapped selfies, an elderly woman even broke off his nose — clearly everyone wanted in on the Chocobatch action.
