Loki's latest episode (episode 5) introduced a frog version of Thor, which would have been amusing for casual fans and very nostalgic for the hardcore comic book readers.
It was still quite a small moment though, so fans probably wouldn't have thought the team would have taken the time to get the actual Chris Hemsworth to come in and do a voice-over for his iconic character. But that's exactly what they went and did.
Speaking to Views From The 616 podcast, showrunner Kate Herron told the hosts of the scene: "We recorded Chris Hemsworth for that, by the way. We recorded him for that.
"His voice going 'Ahhh!' That's a whole new recording. Not recycled. He recorded that."
