Let me set this up for you. The Milk
is an upcoming UK rock band, whose debut album Tales from the Thames
is dropping on 9/3. Basically, they're like Maroon 5, if Maroon 5 was funkier and cooler.
Idris Elba is the guy in those cool Tanqueray ads
, the cool spaceship captain who gets with Charlize Theron in Prometheus
, and the badass lead character in the BBC miniseries Luther
. Oh, and he was Stringer Bell, the coolest character ever on The Wire
. So yeah, he's pretty much the man.
Now with The Milk's new video for "Picking Up The Pieces," both parties have gotten even cooler. The Milk is forever cooler because they're associated with Idris Elba and Idris Elba on the other hand, gets to show off a new facet of his coolness -- rapping. Turns out he's like a better-looking Busta Rhymes! Gotta say, this was a pretty solid career move for The Milk.
Watch the cool video below.
