I’m sure you’re scoffing at this clickbait-y title, thinking I just pulled a random comparison out of thin air because it’s Monday, and let’s be honest, it does happen a lot.

How wrong you’d be (…in this one particular, specific instance. Most of the time you’d be 100% correct, friend.)

So I’ll tell you (smarty pants) what this man:


Has in common with this man:


The key is this song, which I hope you’ll play while you read the rest of this post.

In particular, these lyrics:

If you want to go and take a ride with me

We 3-wheeling in the fo’ with the gold D’s

Oh why do I live this way? (Hey, must be the money!)

Recently, almost-best Chris decided to embody the words of Nelly in a way that we all wish we could live by.


No, he didn’t kick-off his lucrative (yet assuredly short-lived) rap career… yet. Instead, he opted to offer a random hitchhiker in Australia the opportunity to take a ride with him, which ultimately led to a Hemsworth-funded helicopter jaunt to a surfing spot, because like Nelly said “hey, must be the money!”

You can watch the entire thing go down on his recent Instagram post:

I’m always happy when a hitchhiker situation doesn’t end in murder, as I’m sure that’s how everyone who isn’t a homicidal maniac feels. Chris Hemsworth is undoubtedly a cool guy who knows how to have a little fun and look good doing it.


Does this change my feelings about who (my) Best Chris, is?


My heart has, and always will, belong to Evans.


…but does it make me question the previous results of who the official Pajiba Best Chris is?

Yes, absolutely.

All I can say is, that midterms don’t just have to be for Federal elections. It’s possible that the will of the people can (and frankly, should) change at Pajiba as well…


Just consider that, while Nelly plays us out.
