Taika Waititi had the stars of his new film Thor: Ragnarok Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo in stitches, as well as the audience, while demonstrating the accent he used on his Maori character during an interview on the Australian TV show The Project.

The Kiwi director appeared on the show with Hemsworth and Ruffalo to promote their new film on Monday, with Waititi putting on a show-stealing performance when asked who he thought was the funniest between Hemsorth's Thor and Ruffalo's Hulk in the movie. 

"Wait, wait, wait, there's a third person in this conversation that's missing, Taika plays Korg a rock monster from outer space with, what kind of accent do you do?" Hemsworth interjected.

Waititi then gladly gave a description of his character before launching into a hilarious demonstration of the accent he used.

"Oh he's like a Maori bouncer from K'Rd in Auckland, I just thought the kind of movie I wanna see has an alien in it who talks like this.

"Oh hey G'day Thor, aw how's it going man, welcome to this alien planet, if I can be of any assistance while you're here my name is Korg and I'm made of rocks. I know it's freaky, every time I pass by my reflection I also freak out a bit," Waititi said, drawing laughs from everyone in the studio.

Kiwi fans don't have long to wait to hear Taika's Maori bouncer rock monster ham it up on the big screen, with Thor: Ragnarok hitting theatres next Thursday, October 26.

The Kiwi director told Kimberlee Downs it was one of the most egoless shoot he’s ever worked on.
