Watch Chris Hemsworth Give a Dramatic Reading of Rihanna’s “Work”

LOS ANGELES - JAN 08: Chris Hemsworth arrives to the "Blackhat" Los Angeles Premiere on January 8, 2015 in Hollywood, CA

Rihanna’s “Work” has been sitting atop the Hot 100 for six weeks now, and even Chris Hemsworth can’t escape the hit song.

The Thor actor sat in for a dramatic reading of the track’s lyrics during a recent visit to BBC Radio 1.

In a video that’s shown with a black-and-white filter, Hemsworth is heard reading the “Work” lines out loud in a serious tone — managing to hold in his laughter until the end of the lyric delivery.

“It just drummed up a whole lot of feelings, emotions and past experiences,” he joked. “It makes you just want to get to work, doesn’t it? Hear that, kids? Get a job.”
