AceShowbiz - Idris Elba has provided the Internet with a new meme. The "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" star recently stopped by popular YouTube series "Hot Ones", on which he did an interview while eating spicy dishes. But it appeared the spicy chicken wings that he had was too spicy for him that he ended up choking on the food.
Many people found his expression so funny and relatable that they couldn't help but make a meme out of it. Some created the "caught off guard" choking scenario with a clip of Idris choking, with one saying, "When the dinner date is going great and he drop 'so you talking to anyone else?' " Another similarly said, "When you're eating at a restaurant and she randomly asks 'what are we?' " Someone else, meanwhile, joked, "During the meal Jesus said, 'I tell you, one of you will betray me.' Judas:"
Some others went with the classic "bad food choice" scenario. "When people actually ear Avocado & toast after uploading the pic to Instagram," one Twitter user said. There was also one who poked fun at Michelle Obama's infamous School Lunch Program, "Eating your first school lunch when Michelle Obama took over in 2008."
During the show itself, Idris discussed his career and humble beginnings. Talking about his iconic Stringer Bell role on "The Wire", Idris recalled being asked by the show's casting director to hide his accent during the audition process because creator David Simon didn't want non-American actors.
"Alexa Fogel was a casting director that was really into seeing new talent," he said. "She said, I love you, I gotta bring you into this audition, but you have to promise that you can't tell him you're from East London." In the end, he still had to spill the beans because he couldn't lie.
