Watch Jack Black Dance Around Shirtless as Thor

There’s a new God of Thunder in town—and he wears a tiny red speedo. Jack Black just elected himself to take over the lead role in any future Thor films in a video for the ages.

In a mesmerizing new Instagram post, Black throws his Viking helmet into the ring to play the iconic Marvel hero. Clad in a red speedo, winged white high-tops, and a DIY winged helmet (complete with clear packing tape), the funny man gives his best Thor impression set to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song.” You know, as if any other song would be appropriate.

From riding an electric bike at top speeds to skipping around while swinging his massive hammer, Jack Black—um, I mean Thor—certainly looks a lot different than his last appearance in the MCU. But maybe this is the quarantine Thor we all deserve, rather than the very, very jacked Thor currently filming Love and Thunder. “New God of Thunder,” Black captioned the post.

Fans and celebrities alike were quick to praise Black’s incredible performance, with the video gaining more than 1 million likes. Even the OG Thor himself (aka Chris Hemsworth) responded to Black’s video, perhaps recognizing the stiff competition for his coveted Marvel role.

“This is maybe the greatest thing I’ve ever seen,” Hemsworth commented on the post, adding in laugh-crying emojis for good measure. Indeed it is.

Robert Downey Jr., aka Iron Man, even commented on the audition reel, saying, “Chris Hems-who?? On we sweep!!”
