Have things been going inexplicably well in your life? Maybe a stranger paid for your coffee or held a door open for you for no apparent reason. It’s weird, but you’ve accepted it.
Little did you know, you’ve been accepting the trickster god Loki into your life.
That’s right, ladies and gents, you’ve been Loki’d, a phenomenon introduced last year when Tom Hiddleston, star of the recent “Thor: The Dark World” and villain of “Marvel’s The Avengers,” stopped by MTV News and shared with correspondent Josh Horowitz the things Hiddleston has in common with his on-screen persona.
While Hiddleston’s concept of pranking was a bit shaky, to say the least — paying for someone’s lunch and then declaring that they’ve been “Loki’d” isn’t necessarily our idea of a trick, but we’ll take it — it was all fun and games until Hiddleston lookalike Steve broke his back and could, in his words, feel a bone sticking out and touching the floor.
Now, a year later, Steve is back and out for revenge on Horowitz for mistaking him for Hiddleston, throwing a can of peanuts at him — it was a trick can with a pop-up snake rigged inside, in Horowitz’s defense — breaking his back and ruining his life, in that order.
Now that he has Horowitz where he wants him, how will the wheelchair-bound Steve exact his revenge? Find out in the all-new After Hours clip above.
“Thor: The Dark World” is in theaters now.
