And just took him along in the chopper like it's no big deal 

This definitely proves that Chris Hemsworth is a good egg. Without a doubt. 

Our favourite Aussie export flew into Brisbane airport with his personal trainer Luke Zocchi when they saw a hitchhiker wanting a lift to Byron Bay. 

The pair picked up American musician Scott Hildebrand, but little did Scott know that Chris has a way cooler way of getting home to Byron than a three-hour drive down the M1.

Yeah, they made a quick "vehicle change", and that's when the penny dropped for Scott that Chris was a bit more than a friendly Aussie. 

“They said, ‘we’re gonna make a quick stop and switch vehicles’, and at that point I was like, ‘oh, i can help pitch for gas’… and they’re like ‘you’re not gonna want to do that, it’ll be like four grand for that’," Scott told Nova Brisbane's Ash, Kip & Luttsy with Susie O'Neill. 

"Then all of a sudden we pull up to the helipad… and they were like, ‘ever flown in a helicopter, Scotty?’"

"That was when I was like, ‘who are you guys?’" 

Considering Scott said he had never hitchhiked before, we'd chalk this one up as a success.
