Things used to make sense. We used to live in a world where only a very small handful of odd people on the internet fantasized about having sex with Knuckles from Sonic The Hedgehog.
Today? Not so much. Idris Elba (The Suicide Squad, Luther, The Wire) confirmed last night that he'll be voicing the edgy echidna in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog. Now there is a thirst for Knuckles that simply was not there before - at least not to this extent. Clearly, people love a bit of Idris Elba.

There's... going to be a lot of thirst for Idris Elba Knuckles after this movie and I'm not sure we're ready to handle that as a society. https://t.co/MmBRHJ93TF- psudonym (@psuedofolio) August 11, 2021
Thirst aside, there are also plenty of other ridiculous memes that celebrate Elba's casting as Knuckles. Because make no mistake: this casting is ridiculous - but it's also absolutely incredible.

Idris Elba is in so many franchises, won't be surprised if he time travels to go back and join Harry Potter- BD (@BrandonDavisBD) August 10, 2021
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will speed into theatres April 8, 2022. Get ready for Elba to effortlessly steal the entire movie from under Jim Carrey's Doctor Robotnik.
