Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth and his buddy Luke Zocchi picked up an American hitchhiker in Brisbane and proceeded to give the wayward tourist a lift – in a helicopter.

On Sunday, the Thor actor posted a video on Instagram of the two men riding in a vehicle on their way to popular surf spot Byron Bay, when they spotted the hitchhiker on the side of a road.

“Just landed in Brizzzy,” Zocchi said.
