Tom Hiddleston: ‘Thor’ Villain Loki Takes on Little Kids in Comedy Central Video

Video spoofs AT&T's series of commercials starring new 'SNL' regular Beck Bennett

Loki isn’t too pleased with the response he gets from four little kids.

In a Comedy Central spoof of AT&T’s series of commercials starring “Saturday Night Live” regular Beck Bennett, released online this week to promote Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World,” out in theaters Nov. 8,  actor Tom Hiddleston poses as his tricky villain and asks the group who is better: Thor or Loki?

After a little girl explains why she prefers the Norse god, Loki shoves her. “See, who needs a hammer? I pushed you over with my bare hands.”

As of Wednesday, the clever send up had been viewed over 1.3 million times on Comedy Central’s YouTube page, with links to the video available on other pages, increasing its exposure.

    Villians are a dime a bunch,but Tom Hiddleston’s “Loki” will obviously be around for a while to bedevil
    his accursed half brother THOR in more sequels to follow! this little add with Loki and the children is
    very cute and disarming,,so that clearly tells me that “THOR-The Dark World” will be a serious hit!
    too bad Loki can’t pay “Agent Coulson” a little visit,to enstill mayhem in “AGENTS OF SHIELD”,because
    despite the ratings,this is still a borring show,and it can use all the help it can get! wouldn’t come as any
    surprise if ABC and Marvel used some well placed “cameos” to keep things intresting,especially with
    “NCIS” on CBS,still putting-up a good fight in this timeslot!

    It’s cute, but it’s staged. We call that TV.
