There are few voices in this world mightier than those of best buds Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart. Even regular sentences spoken by them sound epic, and when you combine this sound with Taylor Swift lyrics… well, frankly we can’t do it justice with mere written words.
The recitals took place on NPR’s Ask Me Another on Thursday.
Sir Patrick had a go at “Blank Space”.
Sir Ian, meanwhile, took on “Bad Blood” (and, for good measure, Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”).
Following the recital, Sir Patrick turned to Twitter to make the following request…
So @IanMcKellen recited Bad Blood and I did Blank Space on @NPRAskMeAnother. May we join the squad, @taylorswift13? https://t.co/liKBfSzIaU

…and Taylor Swift sounded pretty pleased.
Thanks for reciting my lyrics, @IanMcKellen and @SirPatStew! You’ve made my day. You two are ULTIMATE Squad Goals: pic.twitter.com/pJZY6T5Lq8

No plans for the trio’s first performance have been announced yet, but at this stage it’s only a matter of time.
