Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises was captivating and well wrought, but one thing it was missing—and stay with me here for a minute if you can—was more rapping. The kids like the rapping, right? What else do people like, though? Babies. They love babies. And mustaches. What if we combined all three into one package and launched it out into the universe like a sneak attack of viral synergy? $$$$$$$!
Sounds farfetched, but you can bet a conversation like that is being held in all sincerity right now somewhere in Hollywood after seeing this video of Hardy rapping with a baby strapped to his chest. (via) If only he had a skateboard in one hand and an energy drink in the other, we’d be talking Poochie levels of cool here. While Hardy’s flow, if you want to call it that, isn’t exactly what you might call “tight,” that shouldn’t really be much of a detriment to his career in music if you also take into consideration every other rapper in the game right now.
