The Internet is Horny for Henry Cavill Building a Gaming PC in a Tank Top

Aren't we all?

Henry Cavill has given us what may very well be the nerdiest thirst trap in all of the internets. The erstwhile Superman-Witcher posted a video on his Instagram, which shows him building his own gaming PC in a tank top. The five-minute video is set to the sounds of Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe,” as Cavill painstakingly assembles his new rig.

Maybe it’s the quarantine and the lack of human contact, but the internet has collectively freaked out over Cavill’s post. And to be honest, who among us has not dreamed of a ripped Kryptonian showing up with some tech support? If the Snyder Cut was just this video on a loop, it would be the most compelling entry into the DCEU yet.

Many took to Twitter to swoon over the video because well, what else are we going to do? Toss a coin to your gamer, I guess.

Cavill has been quite productive during quarantine, baking up a storm and painting miniature gaming pieces. What a handsome, nerdy man.

Considering we are, both, going through the Easter period, and going through The Lockdown, I figured it a good time to put a silver lining onto the cloud that is some of the darker moments during this time. So I’ve decided to polish some old skills and try my hand at some new ones! It is a time of rebirth after all. So, as you can see here, the obvious might look a little bit like a tiny helmet…which it is. One of my almost life long hobbies, that I’ve been following but not actively doing, is this. A company called Games Workshop…or plastic crack as “we” call it. Genuinely can’t get enough of the lore they have built over the decades. They have been some of my most enthused reads! If you were in denial about me being a geek before, you can’t hide from it now. Also, in the background of this photo, there may just be some completely new skills I’m working on…..or there may not be, so all of your eye squinting and attempts at digital unfocusing will be in vain….orrrr maybe they won’t. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of my heart, all of the NHS (National Health Service, here in the UK) and healthcare workers worldwide, for your unceasing efforts to protect us. I imagine it might be feeling a little rough right now, but you Ladies and Gents are absolutely smashing it! Keep it up! You got this. “Hold on a second”, I hear you utter…..”if he has both hands in the photo…how is he taking the photo??” New skills, my friends….new skills. #Easter #Passover #GamesWorkshop #ProperGeek #Custodes #NewSkills #NHS #ThankYou #Raggy?

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
