If you’re a big fan of Idris Elba (and let’s be real, who isn’t), then boy do we have a treat for you. The actor took a break from promoting his upcoming movie with Kate Winslet, The Mountain Between Us, to read us a few steamy stories, and this may very well be the greatest thing that’s ever happened.

Throughout the video, Elba dramatically reads passages about his “sinewy shoulders” and “magical neon sexuality,” and some of this stuff is Fifty Shades of Grey-worthy.

While Elba maintains the dramatic characters and voices throughout most of the passages, he does pause ever so often to interject his own thoughts about the material.

“Idris Elba, aka Detective Luther, needs my help to profile the killer … And even though I’m a meter maid, we spend the night together on a stake-out and catch the killer, Pat’s uncle Greg.” Elba said, before breaking character to share his take: “OK, that’s so weird.”

Weird? Perhaps. But it’s given us some great bedtime story material, and that’s something to be grateful for.
