You know, THIS picture.

Idris Elba divulged about "the bulge."

"I just didn't want to scare the world," said Elba, continuing "What does it look like? It looks like a mic. A mic wire."

But Jimmy knew what it really looked like.

Idris didn't know why CNN had to get involved.

Then Jimmy Kimmel asked the hard question on all of our minds.

Alright, we guess the alibi checks out. It matches up with a recent Tweet Elba sent out claiming that the whole Internet was just making mountains out of mic wires.
