Actor Idris Elba (Twitter)

Idris Elba had Twitter buzzing this weekend with a tweet he sent out Saturday evening involving the side effects of his bow tie.

The Mandela actor was heading out in a suit and bow tie when he tweeted a photo of himself and text that read: “My Bow makes my d*** hard every time I smile…is that normal?”

The tweet has been retweeted over 7,400 times and favorited over 8,400 times. He then followed up with a joke, and a tweet expressing his surprise with the amount of attention he was receiving.

Maybe a line of bow ties is in the actor’s future.
