The home-grown international superstar, soon to be seen in Thor: Ragnarok, is featured sending himself up again, using Foxtel's iQ3, the Foxtel app and the Foxtel Kids app to save his day as he faces up to some real life challenges.

Life is unpredictable and whether you're a regular Australian, or Chris Hemsworth, it doesn't discriminate. Foxtel's premium range of products are built to withstand all the interruptions, distractions, mishaps and accidents that can keep us from our favourite entertainment.

The campaign showcases the benefits of Foxtel for customers including the ability to stream from On Demand; being able to start your show over if you have missed the beginning with iQ3; the convenience of the Foxtel App, included as part of subscription, which allows users to bring their entertainment with them; as well as the Foxtel Kids App, where customers can stream their kid's favourites or download to their devices for later.
 
Shot by FINCH director Nick Ball, the spots will feature on Foxtel and be fully integrated into customer communications.
 
Says Rob Farmer, director of brand and marketing, Foxtel: "It's been a pleasure collaborating with Chris Hemsworth on this new work. His self-deprecation is on show again, this time to help us draw customers' attention to our iQ3 box and apps, which ensure you can connect with the content you love, even when life gets in the way."
