Cards on the table, Tom Hardy and a dog are literally the only things I want out of life. 

Don’t get me wrong, most other things are fine. There’s a lot of good stuff in the world. 

I just really, really want a dog and Tom Hardy.

WATCH: Tom Hardy & A Doggo Prepare To Tell Bedtime Stories For British TV

Now, while it’s not quite as good as the real thing, we all just got something that at least stars both Tom Hardy and a dog. And it includes bedtime stories, which is a fun bonus.

Ahead of the next episode of British TV show ‘CBeebies,’ old mate Tom has starred in a promo for his role as Lead Bedtime Storyteller, surrounded by teddy bears, blankets, and his best friend who, for anyone who hasn’t been paying attention, is a dog:

“Cloud spotting with a best friend is definitely more enjoyable.” 

“Especially if your best friend is a dog.”

Surprisingly, this won’t actually be Hardy’s first time on the kids show: he read Simon Philip and Kate Hindley’s ‘You Must Bring a Hat’ for the New Year’s Eve 2016 episode that also featured his good dog.

Turns out Tom Hardy is a huge goddamn softy, who’d have guessed it?

Watch the teaser below, and check out the full episode after it airs in England at 5:50 AM AEDT tomorrow.
