It’s not every day that the local weather report gets a little surprise visit from the man best known for playing Thor on the big screen. Chris Hemsworth made an appearance Australia’s The Today Show to help deliver the forecast.
The scene saw reporter Lauren Phillips shocked as the God of Thunder came up from the background, joking about the horses she was talking about being located a little further down before Phillips asked for some help in delivering the weather. Handing a sheet to Hemsworth, the actor joked that they can "mispronounce all of these" together before reading off some of the towns and forecasts. No one at the station had planned on having the superhero actor appear, with even Hemsworth saying he was only in the area for conversation work.
His surprise left not just the news reporters speechless but also created quite the stir on social media. Many viewers quickly expressed their excitement in seeing the surprise unfold while on air. Here's a look at some of the best reactions to come following Hemsworth's appearance.

@RichardWilkins @RebeccaMaddern9 @JayneAzzo Awesome seeing Chris Hemsworth help Lauren read the weather on #9Today. I hope Chris Hemsworth gets to hopefully film in Melbourne, hopefully the revised (the 80s cartoon classic) #MysteriousCitiesOfGold movie.— Judy Kelly (@Kelly1Judy) September 12, 2020
Sure Australia has a lot of venomous creatures, but there’s also free range Hemsworths, so who’s really winning?— Roxane Lawler (@RoxaneLawler) September 12, 2020
I do worry about the day when this country runs out of Hemsworths— Erin M (@pfinger18) September 12, 2020
