Tom Hardy loves dogs, and he proved it by reciting one of his most famous Bane speeches from The Dark Knight Rises for one of his poocheswhile wearing a nut cup in place of the villain’s mask. Watch it above. 

NME reports that the clip was first posted in 2016, but is currently going viral as it makes the rounds on Twitter.

“Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, molded by it,” Hardy states in his perfectly sinister Bane voice.

“I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding!” 

It appears as though the dog in the video is Hardy’s beloved “Woodstock,” his “special bro” who sadly passed away last year.
