Have you ever wondered how Rihanna’s “Work” would sound like if it was being read by Chris Hemsworth? To keep it short ladies, it sounds like heaven.
Thor delivered a dramatic reading of the singer’s latest #1 hit when he stopped by BBC Radio 1 this week. He made it through RiRi’s entire chorus without breaking focus. The black and white imagery mixed with Hemsworth’s deep Australian voice and a healthy dosage of Barbadian patois is ethereal.
“It’s like I was at the Globe watching Shakespeare,” host Nick Grimshaw jokingly stated after the monologue.
“It drummed up a whole lot of feelings, emotions, and past experiences,” Hemsworth joked. “It makes you just want to get to work. Hear that, kids? Get a job.”
I got a job for you, Chris. Create a weekly podcast in which you deliver dramatic monologues of popular songs like the one below. Next up: Justin Bieber “Love Yourself.” You’re welcome, ladies.
