Chris Pine and Idris Elba Pretend To Hate Each Other In This Star Trek Charity Promotion

We, uh, hope they're just pretending?

Given that Chris Pine and Idris Elba are about to face off as enemies in Star Trek: Beyond, I guess it makes sense that they filmed a video in which they pretend to hate one another in real life. This hilarious-yet-bewildering video hopes to benefit several charities, at any rate. The pair is promoting the Omaze giveaway, which encourages Star Trek fans to donate to a variety of charities in exchange for Trekkie merch and a chance to be selected for a walk-on role in Beyond.

How did Elba and Pine come up with the idea for this video, though? Surely the pair of them get on swimmingly in real life … right?
