Thor: The Dark World starring Chris Hemsworth

A group of enthusiastic pranksters going by the name of Trollstation out of the UK decided to find out just who thinks they are worthy of the power of the Mighty Thor. Just in time for this week’s U.S. release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (the film has been out a week in the UK), the prank basically entailed someone using some heavy duty adhesive to glue a replica of Mjolnir, the famed weapon of Thor, to some concrete in a public square. Passersby then tried to determine their worthiness by attempting to lift the “magic” hammer.

The concept is based on the famous inscription from the Marvel comics stating “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Of course the hammer now mentions that if he OR she be worthy, and in the video, plenty of women gave the challenge a try themselves.

From the looks of it, we puny mortals should probably just leave the heavy lifting to the Asgardians. That and apparently wearing a jacket seems to have an effect on our worthiness. Check out the video here below.
