Idris Elba Could Be Your Valentine’s Day Date: ‘I’ll Let You Pound My Yams’

He’s got his fair share of female admirers and now, Idris Elba is setting hearts aflutter with a Valentine’s Day date proposal.

The suave Brit is offering a chance to be his Valentine and it’s all for a good cause.

Elba, 44, has released a hilarious – and smooth – video detailing how one lucky fan can join him on a date that will include champagne and dinner while supporting the charity W.E. Can Lead which works to empower and educate girls in Sierra Leone.

“I’d like you to be my Valentine. That’s right, love. Just you and me, no one else around. Just us,” he says casually, relaxing in a grey suit in front of a fireplace in the promotional video for Omaze.

“Once we’re feeling comfortable we can order whatever your heart desires. Maybe some truffles, perhaps some steak, pepper soup and fufu,” he explains. “That’s an African dish, and you pound the yams. And you know what? I’ll let you pound my yams.”

But the night won’t end there.

“For dessert you can have whatever you want, and I mean whatever you want,” he says suggestively, in the tongue-in-cheek video which has already racked up over 3.2 million views.
