This Idris Elba doll looks absolute NOTHING like Idris Elba and people are confused
Sorry, but who is this?
Idris Elba was recently voted the Sexiest Man Alive, a title many people feel is very deserving.
However, a recent doll that’s gone on sale that is meant to look like the actor has caused a lot of confusion – mostly because it looks nothing like the famously sexy man.
The Idris Elba doll is currently on sale for £850, a price we’d never pay even if it did actually look like the star himself.
The doll is dressed in a rather dapper tweed blazer and matching waistcoat, a pair of skinny jeans and some boots, but other than the fact that this vaguely resembles an outfit worn by Elba (and pretty much every man ever) the similarities end there.
Naturally, people were left confused and those with access to Twitter made sure to make use of it and share their disappointment.

This just reinforces my belief that how we see ourselves and how others view us can be VERY different! This doll has the head of Montell Williams & the body of Ru Paul ??♀️

I was tryna convince krys that the doll did look like Idris Elba, it just needed some hair. So I drew some and oh my gosh ????? pic.twitter.com/d6PYqdJpF7

Yep, it was a pretty big let down but we’re guessing Sexiest Man Alive Idris isn’t crying himself to sleep over it.
