Watching Chris Hemsworth’s Shirtless Workout Made Me Sweat

If you thought ‘Thor’ could hurl a hammer, check out shirtless Avengers star Chris Hemsworth sling some weights around in a grassy field.

Now, to be fair, there’s a very good reason why Hemsworth is shirtless. You see, it spontaneously burst into flames.

“It was so hot my shirt literally burst into flames,” wrote Hemsworth. “Luckily I was wearing my favourite pair of fire retardant shorts.”

“Give this circuit a go 6 times through Centrfit,” he added referencing his fitness app which boasts training programs and tips from Hemsworth’s own fitness team.

The circuit consists of bent-over rows, a farmer’s carry, bicep curls combined with overhead press, and topped off with a sprint.

Do that six times and we’re pretty sure we’d burst into flames as well.

The post has been liked over 3.2 million times at this writing.

The 36-year-old actor is known for sharing his circuit workouts via Instagram.

Last month, Hemsworth shared this challenging bit of gym time wrestling some iron with trainers Luke Zocchi and Jorge Blanco.

Now, when the god of thunder is out of breath, you know it’s intense.

We may (or may not) have seen the final Avengers movie with Avengers: Endgame, but Hemsworth will return as the thunder god in Thor: Love and Thunder in 2021.

One thing is for sure: Hemsie is definitely going to be in tip-top, god-like shape.

Here’s one more workout from our hero – this one is called the Devil’s Workout.

I’d get sweaty with these guys, how about you?

It’s Not Just The Coffee That’s Hot

At a new coffee shop in Seattle, it's not just the coffee that's steaming hot

At a new coffee shop in Seattle, there’s more than just coffee that’s hot.

The recently opened Dreamboyz Espresso employs shirtless male baristas to serve up coffee drinks with a sense of fun (and maybe some extra foam).

The owners of the coffee shop previously operated a LadyBug Bikini Espresso shop in the same location which offered an all-female staff in bikinis to brew the java.

Apparently, the ‘bikini barista’ thing began in the Oregon/Washington state area in the 1990s.

But the LadyBug shop closed within a year due to lack of business, so the owners decided to switch things up from bikinis to ‘bare-istas’ clad in Chippendales-style bow ties and short-shorts.

Now, things are hopping at Dreamboyz as folks are driving from outside Seattle just to order some Joe from a shirtless Joe.

With the slogan “Hot Guys Serving Hot Coffee,” what more could you want for your caffeine fix?

One of the shirtless hunks of Dreamboyz Coffee, Ja’shaun Williams, told local news station KIRO7, “Everyone’s been very appropriate and respectful.”

Brandon Peters told Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, “I worked at a Starbucks a couple of years back, enjoyed being a barista, however it wasn’t enough money, so when I saw this opportunity, I was like, in a way, I get to bring those things together.”

If you can’t make it to the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, check out the Dreamboyz Espresso Instagram below.

Max Emerson ‘Goes Down’ On The Titanic

Max Emerson ‘goes down’ on the Titanic

YouTuber Max Emerson offers this entertaining ‘alternate universe’ where we find out the Titanic actually played host to one of our favorite shirtless YouTubers before going down in the Atlantic.

Emerson sets the stage by sharing, “There’s nothing worse than having your flight canceled. Luckily my agents got me a sponsored trip home from England on this big new boat!”

Showing off his cabin for his followers, Emerson shares the ‘unboxing’ of his influencer swag (the Heart of the Ocean diamond, naturally) while taking several shirtless selfies with crew members.

The handsome influencer even recreates the famous ‘naked drawing sequence’ from the film, sans a ‘Rose.’ Although, when you’re as hot as Max, who needs anyone else?

When the ship hits ‘something,’ (gee, what could it be?) Emerson heads out to investigate for his followers where a crew member hands him a life jacket.

“Man, these influencers perks do not let up,” exclaims Emerson to his phone camera, complete with heart emojis.

“Oh my god,” says Emerson when he finds out the massive ship is sinking. “My viewer count has never been this high! Four million viewers???”

Needless to say, we pretty much know where this is heading, complete with ‘My Heart Will Go On’ instrumentals.

Major props to the creative team especially writer Deanna Director and director David Ma.

Cute, clever, and a fun mid-day brain break. Hit play below.

Happy Friday!

Colonel Sanders Has A New (Shirtless) Look For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12, and KFC is stepping up their game so you can send Mom a special video just for her.
Colonel Sanders has been hitting the gym

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12, and KFC is stepping up their game so you can send Mom a special video just for her.

The fried chicken giant has a new website, Chickendales.com, where you can create a Mother’s Day video greeting she’ll never forget.

Colonel Sanders (who’s clearly been hitting the gym) and his Chippendales back-up dancers are serving up a tasty semi-personalized performance.

“Oh howdy, mom,” says the newly-beefed up Colonel. “I hear you’re the best mom in the world.”

“What do you think, boys?,” as the men remove their shirts, collar up and the beat kicks in.

At the special website, you enter mom’s name and the state where she lives, and KFC generates a greeting complete with Chippendales Chickendales ripping off their shirts, busting a move and tear-away pants.

One thing’s for sure, this is not your grandmother’s ‘original recipe,’ but it’s sure finger-licking good.

From KFC’s Facebook page: “The Chickendales are cooking up two very special things this Mother’s Day: hot meals and even hotter dance moves.”

Here’s the generic video, but click here to make your personalized version for Mother’s Day.

Shirtless Chris Pratt Appears In New Michelob Ultra Super Bowl Spot

Action movie star Chris Pratt stars in new Michelob Ultra commercial set to air during the Super Bowl

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has a new Michelob Ultra commercial set to air during the Super Bowl and Pratt is super-stoked about it.

In the spot, the action hero is shown doing bicep curls with a beer bottle while thinking up a character name (“Michelob Picklestein? Michelob. My name is Tommy Ultra. Tommy Ultra?”).

But it’s not quite the role Pratt imagined when he arrives on set.

In any case, it’s a good excuse to see the hunky hero shirtless 🙂

It’s Herndon Climb Time At The Naval Academy

It’s that time of the year when “Plebes,” having reached the end of their first year at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, must climb the lard-laden Herndon Monument and replace an underclassman’s hat at the top of the monument with an upperclassman’s hat.

Only then can they begin their summer.

This year’s class completed the task in 2 hours, 21 minutes and 21 seconds.

Shirtless, hunky Naval Academy freshman climbing on each other. What’s not to like? 😉
