Behold: Morgan Freeman on helium
It sounds even better than you're imagining
Apropos of nothing, Morgan Freeman has inhaled helium for your listening pleasure.
This most joyous of happenings takes place during a clip from an upcoming documentary about the mysteries of the universe he features in.
Freeman is probably top of my list of celebrities I'd like to see on helium (a very important list written on a stone tablet), such is his soothing, rich baritone.
The best thing about the video is that there isn't a real need for him to be inhaling the noble gas, with it not really serving to demonstrate any scientific principle, just generally being a delightful moment to throw in.
Last year, the Oscar winner made similarly silly headlines when he appeared to fall asleep during a filmed interview.
He eventually responded with the rather excellent explanation: "I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page."
