When you think of Downton Abbey, stunning gowns, elegant estates, and sibling rivalries probably come to mind. Rap and hip-hop superstar Cardi B probably doesn't. Nevertheless, Lily Singh decided to create a mash-up for the ages during the most recent episode of her talk show, A Little Late, by having Downton cast members Elizabeth McGovern, Allen Leech, and Hugh Bonneville — who were there to promote their new film — recite some of the rapper's lyrics in character. The result? Hearing Bonneville (aka Robert Crawley, the Earl of Grantham) saying "I like boardin' jets, I like mornin' sex, woo," in a very posh accent. Instant gold.
