Chris Hemsworth Delivers An Oscar-Worthy Reading Of Rihanna’s ‘Work’

'You hear that, kids? Get a job.'

Rihanna’s “Work” is the type of song that practically no one can resist dancing to whenever it comes on. As for actually singing along to it, though? That’s where it gets a little tricky. And in that case, allow Chris Hemsworth to swoop in with the assist and teach you the lyrics.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War actor channeled his inner Bad Girl Riri at BBC Radio 1 this week, where he performed a dramatic reading of “Work.” Well... OK, it’s not completely serious -- even Chris can’t stifle a smile as he recites the semi-unintelligible chorus. But, assisted by a monochrome filter that drastically ups the drama factor, Chris makes the dancehall jam sound utterly Shakespearean.

Clearly moved by the power of his own interpretation, Chris admitted, “It drummed up a whole lot of feelings and emotions and past experiences.

“It makes you just want to get to work,” he continued. “You hear that, kids? Get a job.”

Soooo, can we all agree that the “paper drop” is the new “mic drop”? Good.
