This is what happens when Anthony Hopkins channels his inner Pennywise.
The creepiest thing Anthony Hopkins has ever given us was his Oscar-winning performance as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, right? Well, that *was* the case until precisely yesterday morning, when the 80-year-old actor went gloriously off the rails for a short Twitter video with a simple, The Shining-inspired caption:
“This is what happens when you’re all work and no play…”
In the video, which quickly amassed millions of views and tens of thousands of re-tweets, Hopkins dances madly while making bizarre faces, seeming to recreate that scene from last year’s IT (the one that became a meme) wherein Pennywise dances maniacally. We’re thinking Hopkins just created his own viral meme here.
Enjoy this. Whatever the hell this is.
