It's no secret that Rihanna's latest single “Work” is an incredibly infectious dance song, but the lyrics are a bit difficult to grasp. Fortunately, Chris Hemsworth decided to swoop in out of nowhere and give us all the assist we needed to learn Rihanna's infamously muffled lyrics. Hemsworth stopped by BBC Radio 1 to promote his latest film, Hunstman: Winter's War, when he delivered a dramatic reading of “Work.”

Thanks to a monochrome filter, the melodrama is amplified to the max. In fact, Hemsworth's performance is so epic that it's hard to believe he's reading a Bad Girl RiRi's song rather than reciting Shakespeare. Clearly, the dramatic reading made a serious impact on the actor.

“It drummed up a whole lot of feelings and emotions and past experiences. It makes you just want to get to work,” Hemsworth quipped. “You hear that, kids? Get a job.”
