According to the video's YouTube page, the idea came when Vidar Magnussen and Bjarte Tjostheim of the TV show, "Underholdningsavdelingen," realized they looked like Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, respectively.
So they decided to make their own version of "Sherlock."
The short "Oklahomo" video (the title gets an explanation at the very end) gets the look and aesthetics of "Sherlock" absolutely right, while the dialogue and action quite literally make no sense. Also, this Sherlock and Watson kiss. And jump and kiss.
While the whole thing is amusing, here are some of the best (and strangest) lines:
"Watson, do you believe in curtains?""If I was to dance like a miniature cat, would you kill me or »
In recent years, the show has been reduced to hit-and-miss specials and the latest three-episode run from writer David Renwick has picked up some of the programme's worst ever reviews from fans and critics.
The ratings are still solid, but not spectacular, and there's a growing sense that the show may have reached its sell-by-date. The opening episode of the current series, 'The Letters Of Septimus Noone', poked fun at the success of Sherlock with a spoof Benedict Cumberbatch-style character making a hash of a mystery.
Creek in its prime could have got away with such a gag - Sherlock is sometimes a bit pompous and the show is due a send-up. If Creek was still at its witty, »
The book features 16 black-and-white drawings to color as well as several games to make the experience that much more interactive. According to the website: "From his dreamy expression on the front page to his smoulder on the back page, this unlikely heart-throb gets the full Colour Me Good treatment."

Previous editions of the Colour Me Good series focus on Ryan Gosling, ginger-haired stars and more.
"Colour Me Good Benedict Cumberbatch" will be available from the I Love Mel website starting March 21.
Benedict Cumberbatch was the talk of the 2014 Oscars when he photobombed U2 on the red carpet. Now there is also a video of the incident -- and a brilliant person set the whole thing to the tune of "Jaws."
It looks like the "Sherlock" star merely seized a moment at the Academy Awards and ran at the U2 guys. As the "Jaws" theme reaches a crescendo, Cumberbatch leaps into the air not once but twice. At least one of the photobomb victims does notice the incident and begins to laugh.
Cumberbatch then melts back into the crowd almost immediately and appears to resume a conversation.
It's really quite amazing how much entertainment this actor provides. »
"That was a really interesting one," Scott told Digital Spy of the hallucinatory scene. "It was part of an extraordinary sequence that I thought was really beautifully directed, and read fantastically well on the page.
"It was a case of removing myself a little bit from Moriarty, because it was in Sherlock's mind palace. So it allowed me to go to real extremes with the character, to see what he would be like were he completely unleashed.
"I like being able to see Moriarty through Sherlock's eyes, it's such an interesting angle on the character. It's an insight into the mind of the hero, as much as anything, so »
Source: Kevin Winter / Getty Images Sorry everyone, but Tina Fey says a Mean Girls sequel just isn't going to happen. However, they are planning something for the 10-year anniversary in April. (Also, we won't mention the not-so-great TV movie Mean Girls 2, which wasn't a true sequel.) Chris Harrison says there was something that "just didn't seem right" about Juan Pablo Galavis. Jeopardy! wiz Arthur Chu broke his 12-day winning streak on the show after losing on Final Jeopardy. The question that stumped him? "He was the last male monarch who had not previously been the Prince of Wales." (The answer: who is George VI, Queen Elizabeth II's father.)

Five actors are rumoured to be in line for Star Wars Episode 7.
Disney and director Jj Abrams have narrowed down the casting of the film's Jedi Padawan hero, reports Variety.
Details of the character - and the rest of the plot - remain sparse. The original draft was believed to focus on the children of Leia and Han Solo, but they are now said to have been shunted into a supporting role.
Plemons had previously been mentioned in connection to the new Star Wars movie.
Star Wars Episode 7 will begin shooting later in »
Washington, Mar.13: Benedict Cumberbatch was apparently involved in a brawl during Oscars weekend earlier this month.
The 'Sherlock' star was reportedly caught in the middle of a scuffle between his limo driver, valets and security over a parking spot outside a Los Angeles hotel.
A source told the National Enquirer that when Cumberbatch's driver pulled up to the hotel, he failed to drive into the semicircular driveway and parked his limo on the street which blocked the exit.
The source further added that as the 37-year-old actor stepped out, several valets ran up and demanded that the limo must be moved. »

Benedict Cumberbatch is trying to dumb it down a little bit, at least while he is working. Cumberbatch, 37, is looking for a role on screen as a 'dumb' character. The 'Sherlock' actor, who has just completed 'The Imitation Game', a biopic of British cryptographer, Alan Turing, insists he's ready for a less intellectual role. The 37-year-old star told T magazine: ''I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers... ''I am so ready to play a really dumb character.'' Benedict, who has also won awards for his role as Victor Frankenstein and his monster in the West End production, became a huge star after taking on the part of the titular detective in BBC1's 'Sherlock' but admits he's not the nicest character to play. He said: ''I always make it clear that people who »

Joss Whedon is currently hard at work on Avengers: Age of Ultron, the superteam super-sequel that promises to turn 2015 into the most superpowered summer since 2014. But one does not merely walk into Age of Ultron. In an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige confirms that Joss Whedon directed one of the post-credits sequences for next month’s Captain America sequel The Winter Soldier. It would appear that — like the Thor sequel and Avengers — the film has two post-credits scenes, a development which promises to leave our Post-Credits Pantheon in tatters.
Whedon previously directed the post-credits scene for Thor, »

The actor revived iconic villain Khan in Jj Abrams's Star Trek Into Darkness last year, and the film ended with the character being placed in cryogenic sleep along with his crew, leaving the door open for a return.
"That was a stupid thing to do," Cumberbatch joked during an interview with The New York Times. "They should have just blown me up."
Abrams will not return to direct the third instalment in his rebooted Trek series, owing to his commitment to Disney's upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, but will stay on as producer.
Attack the Block director Joe Cornish was in line to replace Abrams last year, but has now reportedly departed the project. Roberto Orci will return to pen the script alongside new writers Jd Payne and Patrick McKay.

Benedict Cumberbatch is a lovable guy. When the "Sherlock" star protests that he's not, that just makes him more attractive -- the guy can't win. For the rest of us, however, it's lovely. A recent interview in T Magazine offers a whole bunch of reasons to adore Cumberbatch.
Here are 10 of the best.
1. Cumberbatch, who has previously compared himself to an otter, also thinks that he looks like Sid from "Ice Age." Judge for yourself.
2. Coffee makes Cumberbatch talk really quickly.
3. Did you realize that Cumberbatch has never really had a romantic lead? "I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers," he says.
5. Although most actors want their characters to return in movie sequels, Cumberbatch thinks not killing Khan at the end »

In an effort to cut off the head and put a stake in the heart of the awards season for a few months, last week saw us running down a few of the Best Picture possibilities for the 2014/2015 Oscars. Namely, the movies that are likely to dominate discussions in the back six of the next twelve months. Having ticked that off our list, we're continuing with our annual premature awards predictions, with Best Actor. Last year, we managed to call three of the five early (Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Fifth Estate" came to naught, and Steve Carell in "Foxcatcher" wasn't released in time to qualify), which we feel isn't a bad guess for 51 weeks in advance. You can see our predictions for this year's line-up below. Suggest your own in the comments section, and come back tomorrow for the Best Actress line-up.

If you thought it had something to do with Woody Harrelson's father-in-law - and this doesn't constitute a spoiler, because that was too off-base to ever be possible - you were wrong. In fact, just about every theory that cropped up online speculating about the finale of HBO's terrific True Detective (and inspiring writers to mention the notorious ending of Lost) was wrong. Now onto some real spoilers. The resolution of the sprawling mystery of who was committing the ritualized serial killing of young women and children grew, with surprising directness, out of the very last shot of the previous, »

Keira Knightley and Salma Hayek are follwing the lead of activist and actress Angelina Jolie - the pair are campaigning for women's rights in Afghanistan. The actresses are among a number of celebrities who have put their name to a letter which has been sent to UK Prime Minister David Cameron ahead of International Women's Day on March 8, asking him to assure help in the country. Afghanistan has a fragile political infrastructure, and while its people are embracing great change in 2014 - with elections and the withdrawal of international troops - many are concerned about how women, whose rights have increased a great deal in the last decade, will be treated in future. The letter has been signed by Keira Knightley, Joseph Fiennes, Salma Hayek, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Sheen, Gillian Anderson, Grayson Perry, Dave Stewart and Adrian Lester. It states: ''It has taken true courage for Afghan women to defy the Taliban, »
The Mycroft actor, who writes the show alongside Steven Moffat, reiterated that the programme is so hard to film due to the lead stars' hectic schedules.
"If Benedict went under a bus tomorrow it would be the end of the show," Gatiss told The Mirror. "Benedict and Martin [Freeman] are our stars.
"We do three episodes a year and although people want more that's all we can do. They are both so famous now it's increasingly difficult to get them."
He added: "Sherlock made Benedict a star and I know he is eternally grateful to the show - he wants to do more.
"They are both major stars but they both want to carry on. »
'Sherlock' creator Mark Gatiss says Benedict Cumberbatch is irreplaceable. The show's boss admitted the programme would not be able to continue without its leading man in the role of the fictional detective, and insisted both he and Martin Freeman are vital to its success. Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: ''If Benedict went under a bus tomorrow it would be the end of the show. ''Benedict and Martin are our stars. We do three episodes a year and although people want more that's all we can do. They are so famous now it's difficult to get them.'' Mark recently responded to criticism »
