Keeping aside the completely unnecessary Internet memes of who is the best “Chris” of Hollywood, the dig and pun war between the Chrises, especially all three Marvel’s Chris, just intensified.
So how did Chris Hemsworth wish Chris Evans a happy birthday, and what was Chris Pratt doing there? Here’s the DL on it all, but remember, it was all started by the Terminator…
As In Pratt’s F-I-L, Arnold Schwarznegger
Whosoever said that action heroes do not have a sense of humor, have not come across the ex-Governer of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
During a charity exchange on Instagram, hosted by Pratt, Schwarznegger came online, only to begin the interaction with a prank.
Said the Terminator, “Hello, Chris … Evans, oh not Chris Evans, sorry, I’m going to screw up this whole thing right from the beginning, Chris Pratt.”
Was it a genuine mistake? Considering this is his daughter’s husband and baby daddy, fans certainly did not think so…
Here’s the exchange, and the in-laws interact at 2:09 on the time frame…
The Better Chris?
Of course, the dad-in-law corrected his mistake quickly, saying, “Sorry about that. I should know your name, I should know your name. That’s for sure. You’re my favorite son-in-law”.
But since then, the puns and the memes come aplenty and everyone’s favorite joke is to call one Chris by the other’s name.
Do the Chrises find it funny? Dunno but as far as Hemsworth is concerned, his own son is only too happy to troll him, as he wants to be Superman instead of Thor.
Meanwhile, in December 2020, Pratt had already declared himself to be the “better Chris“!
Hemsworth Decided To Troll Evans
Continuing this long-standing rivalry, Chris Hemsworth just swung his funny hammer at Chris Evans on his 40th birthday, and wished him the best but used Pratt’s picture instead.
Wrote Thor, “Happy 40th birthday Chris Evans, you’ll always be number 1 in my book 🎉🎉 @chrisevans“.
Many, or rather most fans got the joke, one commenting, “Man. Chris has changed over the years 😂😂😂😂😂”.
Another Instagram user carried on the joke, writing, “that’s not Chris Evans ☝🏽☝🏽 it’s Chris Pine 🙄”
Here’s the birthday post…
How Will Chris Evans Retaliate?
Some took the joke a bit too seriously trying to tell Hemsworth that he had the wrong Chris, prompting one fan to comment, “People’s senses of humor must be really damn dry for them to not realize this is a joke. 😂”
The post garnered some 5.6 million likes, although Chris Evans seems to have kept mum about it.
The man may be planning something equally punny, on a devastating scale. That’s because hey, you don’t mess with the Cap, even if you were Thor, considering he’s the only Avenger who can wield the Mjollnir…
Hemsworth and Pratt better watch out, cause Chris Evans is not afraid of a fight, or any bruises!
