(DARLING, AUSTRALIA) — While nobody would doubt Chris Hemsworth is incredibly built — he’s Thor, after all — but wait until you get a look at the guy who takes Thor’s hits on set: his lookalike stunt double, Bobby Holland Hanton. 

Hemsworth posted an Instagram video of pair taking turns at a “test your strength” arcade game, in which you take a swing at a boxing speed bag. Hemsworth took a swing with his superheroic right arm and registered a score of 8792 — impressive, for sure, but not enough to break the high score of 9060. He even took a shot with a roundhouse kick, which connected perfectly but scored well below the record.

Then Bobby steps up and delivers a crushing left hook, sending the machine’s numbers flying until he shatters the record, scoring 9112. 

The pair were apparently capering around at the arcade while in Darling, Australia Thursday.
