The actor and DJ was recently named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive which just confirmed all the thirst display in the Brits direction.
So it’s no surprise that British toy manufacturer Emperis saw the lucrative opportunity in creating a doll in the image of the sex pot himself. However, there was one major flaw…the doll looks nothing like Idris Elba! It’s even more laughable because the item has a $1,100.00 price tag. Seriously.
The doll eerily looks like Montell Williams. Former talk show host, Montell Williams made a joke stating, “Ok, so I guess I have a doll now.” Fans of Idris Elba took to social media to voice their dislike for the doll.
Ryan Cameron stated, “Someone needs to clock out!!!”
Another Twitter user made a joke stating, “Idris Elba looking at that doll…” with a gif of Elba looking disgusted.
One Twitter user commented that the doll looked like something from Tales From The Hood!
Another commenter finds a striking resemblance between the doll and actor Romany Malco.
Literally, as I write this…I’m crying. This doll! The poses! Who did this?!
Apparently, the news has gotten back to the doll manufacturers because it’s off of Emperis’ website. Did the doll sell out or is the brand embarrassed at the reaction of consumers? Nevertheless, we hope that the doll company tries again because an actual Idris Elba doll that looks like Idris Elba would be perfect in time for the holidays.
