A brief clip showing Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok cameo just screened on the American late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! and it is comedy gold.

The clip was played during an interview between host Kimmel and Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, who was promoting the film.

In the clip Thor and Waititi's character, a rocky beast named Korg who talks with a thick New Zealand accent, have a hilarious, misunderstanding-filled discussion about the workings of Thor's prized hammer.

We won't spoil any of the jokes but Waititi and Hemsworth absolutely nail it.

After the clip Hemsworth revealed that the scene was largely improvised, and that it was that same collaborative spirit that drived the making of the film.

The movie opens in New Zealand on Thursday, October 26.
