When Idris Elba challenges you to a dance off, you do as you're told. The British tough-guy actor stars in the new video for the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis single, "Dance Off," which is beginning to take off online.

Directed by Ryan Lewis and Jason Koenig, the cinematic clip is loaded with slick dance routines (including a particularly impressive breakdance-meets-weight-training move) and sweaty bodies ... and there's a single, naked male butt.

"I challenge you to a dance off/Hands off, no trash talk, no back walk/On the black top, just me, you, that's all/No cat calls, no tag teams, no mascots," says Elba in his immaculate English accent.

"Dance Off" is lifted from the hip-hop duo's latest album release, This Unruly Mess I've Made.

Not surprisingly, the clip is generating a lot of buzz. Soon after its release overnight, the track was the fastest-moving song on Twitter, a fact Macklemore didn't miss. Check out his Instagram below.
