Instead of picking up his hammer, the mighty Thor picked up a hitchhiker and gave him a lift in his private chopper. American tourist Scott Hildebrand got super lucky because he got to ride Chris Hemsworth's private chopper with the star! The Australian actor was on his way to popular surf town in his turf, Byron Bay when he came across Hildebrand outside of Brisbane Airport. Hemsworth was with his trainer Luke Zocchi when they made Hildebrand's acquaintance. Little did the hitchhiker expect to be riding the chopper with such a big movie star.
Recalling the incident, Hildebrand told local Australian radio station NOVA919, “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’,” and added, “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?’. The coolest part of this whole trip is that Scott got to perform his song in front of Hemsworth as they headed towards Byron Bay.
Scott shared a video of his lucky day on Instagram with a caption that went like this - "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. Chris is such an awesome dude! Thanks so much guys!@chrishemsworth @zocobodypro

Hemsworth also shared this mad adventure on his Instagram and thanked his stars that they didn't pick up a serial killer! His caption read, "Picked up a hitchhiker, wasn’t a serial killer which we were stoked about and just happened to be a kick ass musician Scott Hildebrand @scotthilde 🤙👍#WelcomeToAustralia @australia @zocobodypro" Check out their Instagram posts below.
The rest of Hemsworth's trip to Byron Bay was languid and easygoing as he just took up some surfing, got rid of the shirt that covered his god-like abs and even engaged in a little PDA with his wife, Elsa Pataky. Sure, we did wonder where the kids were at but Chris' wet shirtless pictures were too damn distracting!
