In case you missed it, Marvel recently shared a hilarious mockumentary short—which previously premiered at Comic-Con—starring Chris Hemsworth’s Thor leading a more typical life with his roommate, Darryl Jacobson. Since Thor wasn’t involved in the events portrayed in Captain America: Civil War, he had some time on his hands, so he’s been bothering Darryl at work and home, volunteering at a local school, redecorating his room, and otherwise being as ordinary as the Asgardian god of thunder can possibly be.
The skit is absolutely hysterical, so good that now there’s a petition to parlay the hype into a full-blown Netflix show starring Thor and Darryl. Ty Schmidt, who started the Change.org petition, wrote that after he watched the video, he “went into the comment section, and stumbled upon a comment that said ‘Can we start a petition for this to be a Netflix Series’, and I thought to myself ‘I want this to be a thing too.’”
There’s good news and bad news here: The bad news is that, considering the sketch is little more than a fun and entertaining promotional tool for both Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, it’s doubtful a TV series would be produced based on it.
However, the good news is that if you want to watch a new show about a long-haired mythical figure navigating ordinary urban life and encountering funny fish-out-of-water scenarios, Fox’s upcoming series Son of Zorn appears to be pretty much exactly that, and it premieres on September 11, so you really don’t have to wait that long!
Compare the Thor sketch with the trailer for Son of Zorn below, and be thankful that your wish is actually being granted a lot more quickly than you could have reasonably expected—even the thumbnail images for the two videos are almost the same!
And while we’re talking about Thor, we’ve got some major Ragnarok spoilers here:
