Idris Elba is back as Luther in first footage from series 5

A doll meant to look like Idris Elba is getting mocked online.

British doll manufacturer Emperis designed the £850 figurine in response to the actor earning this year’s People Magazine “Sexiest Man Alive” title but it looks nothing like him.

One Twitter user called Court happened upon the doll and decided to post a side-by-side comparison with Elba and the tweet went viral.


Here’s a closer look:

Unsurprisingly, people had a lot to say about the doll and suggested a number of other people and things it looked more like.




Several people felt the doll more closely resembled the American actor Romany Malco…


…and he himself got in on the joke too.


Even Montell Williams was drawn into the doll drama.


Idris Elba has yet to respond but we really hope he does soon.
