Idris Elba choking on chicken wings has become a meme and it's hilarious

There's an Idris Elba meme for every occasion...
Human God Idris Elba gave an interview recently that was a *little bit* out of the ordinary. Appearing on First We Feast's Hot Ones - a show that sees celebrities be interviewed while eating increasingly spicy chicken wings - Idris started off pretty impressively.
All seemed to be going well until he had to face a hot sauce called ‘Da Bomb: Beyond Insanity’, which reaches an incredible 135,600 on the Scoville scale and inadvertently started a new meme.
Now, we’re not hot sauce experts, but we’re guessing ‘Da Bomb’ is pretty hot, considering Idris coughed, spluttered and uttered a string of expletives while staring at the interviewer in disbelief. It also makes perfect meme content.
Idris Elba choking on chicken wings has become our new favourite meme because it’s so applicable to so many situations.
There’s this one, which is basically us in Nando’s every single time...
