Chris Hemsworth Treats Lucky Hitchhiker In Australia To Helicopter Ride

A hitchhiker looking for a ride from Brisbane to Byron Bay in Australia hit the jackpot on Friday when he was picked up by none other than Chris Hemsworth and his personal trainer Luke Zocchi. 

Video posted on Hemsworth's Instagram page shows the actor pulling over for Scott Hildebrand, an unsuspecting American musician who'd just made his way to Australia from Mexico. 

Hildebrand repeatedly exclaims "no way" after being informed that they are taking a helicopter to their destination. 

The clip shows him beaming as Hemsworth flies the group to Byron Bay. Hildebrand has since revealed in a radio interview that Friday was his first time hitchhiking and that he didn't recognize Hemsworth at first. 

"All of a sudden we pull up to the helipad. They’re like ‘ever flown in a helicopter Scotty?’ and I couldn’t believe it and that’s when I was like ‘Who are you guys?'" he recalls. 

"Luke was like, ‘That’s Chris Hemsworth, Thor,’ And I was like, ‘What?' I couldn’t believe it." 

He adds of the ride, "It was beautiful. We saw whales and dolphins. It was magical."
