'We'll give him a lift': Chris Hemsworth surprises hitchhiker with helicopter ride

Chris Hemsworth Picked Up A Hitchhiker And Took Them On A Chopper Ride To Byron Bay

Hitchhiker Scott Hildebrand was offered a very special ride when Thor star Chris Hemsworth chose to give him a lift to Byron Bay.

'He seemed like a normal dude, ' Scott said.

Overseas visitor: When asked whether he knew who Chris Hemsworth was, Scott (pictured) replied: "Not by name, no".

Chris Hemsworth and friend Luke gave a backpacker a warm welcome to Australia by offering the tourist a ride - with a twist. In the beginning of the video, Luke narrated the tale of having "just landed in Brizzy (Brisbane)" when they spotted a hitchhiker.

The two men had just touched down in Brisbane when they saw Scott attempting to hitch a ride over the state border to Byron Bay, New South Wales.

A video posted on Monday, Oct. 22, on the "Thor" star's Instagram shows him and Zocchi in a vehicle after they landed in Brisbane.


"We're going to Byron, we'll give him a lift", Chris chimed in.

But the ride wasn't going to be as straightforward as it first appeared.

It's fair to say that Scott looks pretty happy in the clip.

The Instagram post has been viewed well over a million times and features a caption from the film star reading in part, "Picked up a hitchhiker, wasn't a serial killer which we were stoked about".

After flying Scott - and his guitar - to Byron Bay, Chris tells him it's "back to hitchhiking" for his new friend.

"Chip in for the gas, all right", Hemsworth joked.
