We already know that Idris Elba is a beautiful man (and a great actor), but did you know that he is also a professional heart melter?
Well, if you didn’t know (but, like, how didn’t you know? I mean, look at him!) go ahead and prepare yourself. Because Idris showed up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about his new film, Dark Tower, but left us with so much more to talk about than his superb acting skills. Jimmy Fallon never lets his guests off the hook without performing some type of wacky antic, and Idris is no exception.
The game? Google Translate Songs. The prize? Our undying love and affection and an inability to stop singing Jimmy’s cover of Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time,” which is newly entitled “Meet My Kids.”
Ladies (and gentlemen) put on a belt, because your panties will be droppin’. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
We don’t know about you, but when Idris said, “Shut your face, pray for dreams, and now throw away your lamp” we shut our faces, prayed for dreams, and got rid of every single lamp in the office. Safe to say you’ll be dreaming about Idris singing about his love for large saplings and placing kindness on you for the forseeable future.
We definitely didn’t need noise canceling headphones for Idris’ performance, but do y’all remember when Masika brought ear protection for Zell and Moniece because she didn’t want to hear Hazel-E’s music? Relive it here:
