Idris Elba Challenges You To A Dance-Off In Macklemore’s Crazy New Video

...while wearing leather pants

Get ready to see Idris Elba as you’ve never seen him before: wearing leather pants and delivering a silly, spoken-word breakdown in a Macklemore music video.

The smooth-as-hell actor stars in Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s new video for “Dance Off,” from the duo’s most recent album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. Wearing a fur coat that gives off serious Cruella de Vil vibes, Elba gives his best "Thriller"-like narration, challenging you to a dance-off with “no cat calls, no tag teams, no mascots.”

The rest of the highly GIFable video finds Macklemore busting out some spazzy moves as dance battles break out wherever he goes, including...

  • At the gym...
  • At a restaurant...
  • At a hotel wedding reception...
  • And at a massage kiosk inside the mall.
