Even Idris Elba thinks this PUBG character looks like him

Here’s nine PUBG maps we want to see next.

Since PUBG’s release, fans have been comparing the pre-made character models to famous faces. Though some comparisons are a bit far-fetched, others are pretty striking. In particular, how one character looks exactly like Thor actor Idris Elba.

Here’s what the pre-made character looks like:

The resemblance is uncanny – even the man himself thinks so.

Having caught on to PUBG Corp using his likeness, Elba decided to throw some shade their way by sharing a tweet from the developers explaining where their “inspiration” for the new Savage map came from, claiming it was “one of these guys.”

Though Elba is probably joking, you don’t want to be on the wrong side of Stringer Bell.
