Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has turned to Twitter to draw attention to a small local village of thousands of people (it’s about 6,000 people). The actor, perhaps best known for playing the superhero Thor in the Marvel franchise, was promoting his new film “Men in Black” in a line of solar powered chairs.
But the locals of the tiny town of Bodalla, on the NSW South Coast, are adamant he should stay. With his phone’s snap-back hat down, he told a delighted crowd: “Well, you know, I’m from Australia, you know.”
He didn’t appear to notice the blemishes:
Hi Chris Hemsworth, Sydney can welcome you to Australia with open arms. Thanks for your complimentary tweet pic.twitter.com/bI15MZJIn8 — Matthew (@Santabronco) May 28, 2016
Hemsworth tweeted that he was “proud to have found the right home” and is “looking forward to coming back to this beautiful country one day.”
I was actually at a complete loss for words with how our little @MenInBlackUK fans were responding to my campaign of chair pranks on twitter, so finally I found the answer pic.twitter.com/juWqrbH25G — Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) May 26, 2016
The entertainment journalists who were on hand to capture the moment took it in stride:
