When Thor isn’t busy helping the other Avenger’s defend the world, he apparently likes to be a prankster.

Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, which began filming on the Fourth of July, shared a sample of the God of Thunder’s sense of humor. Taking to Twitter, the What We Do in the Shadows actor and director posted a picture of Thor’s iconic and infamously heavy hammer perched on Waititi’s toilet.

“Thanks a lot dude,” wrote the director, tagging Thor actor Chris Hemsworth in the tweet as well.

Other Twitter users joined in on the fun, posting their take on the joke.

For more of Thor’s antics, fans can travel to theaters in 2017 for Thor: Ragnarok. Waititi’s current film, Hunt for the Willderpeople is out now.
