Idris Elba’s Mystery Bulge Is Not What You Think It Is

About those Idris Elba photos that had some of us doing double takes this weekend.

It turns out we’re not looking at what we think we’re looking at. (Don’t you just hate when that happens?)

The British actor was photographed on the set of his latest film, A Hundred Streets, with what appeared to be a very, umm, well-packaged member. The photos immediately went viral—even Gawker did it’s own hilarious photographic investigation of “the mystery bulge.”

But the actor says there’s nothing to get excited about.

“The good news is i got a sh**load of followers. The bad news is, that is a mic wire,” he tweeted Saturday night, adding the hashtag “ #egowentintospaceshipmodethough.”

“Calvin Klein called my mobile, they want me in their next campaign. Foot long john’s Coming Winter 2014.”

Mystery solved!
