Not every hitchhiker is lucky enough to be picked up by Thor himself—and transported across Australia in a private helicopter. In a video posted to his Instagram, Chris Hemsworth documents an adventure with his personal trainer, Luke Zocchi, and their new friend, a U.S. tourist named Scott Hildebrand.

After seeing the hitchhiker outside of Brisbane Airport, Hemsworth pulled over and told the traveler to hop in. Luckily enough, they were all headed to the same place—popular surf town Byron Bay. Little did the hitchhiker know that he’d be getting the ride of his life.



“They said, ‘we’re gonna make a quick stop and switch vehicles’, and at that point I was like, ‘oh, i can help pitch for gas’,” Hildebrand told local Australian radio station NOVA919. “And they’re like ‘you’re not gonna want to do that, it’ll be like four grand for that’. That was when I was like, who are you guys?’.

Hildebrand reposted the Instagram video to his personal account, writing, “When hitchhiking leads to a helicopter ride with Thor… So grateful for this crazy experience and the opportunity to share my music with so many beautiful people. Thanks guys!”

In his original post, Hemsworth says he’s just glad they didn’t pick up a serial killer. We are, too.
