There are some things that not even Thor’s muscles can accomplish.

Chris Hemsworth is hosting Saturday Night Live this week. While he’s clearly got the action and comedy genres down pat, he may need a refresher on romance.

In promos for the upcoming episode, SNL cast member Kate McKinnon asks Hemsworth, 31, to reenact the famous Dirty Dancing lift. It does not go well for McKinnon.

She also challenges PEOPLE’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive to an arm-wrestling match, which is actually just her excuse to get her hands on him – it’s “a classic McKinnon trick.” Thanks for the tip, girl.

Hemsworth’s brother Liam is also mentioned as McKinnon encourages Hemsworth to lift weights and “think about every time someone told you that Liam was the hot one.”

The Avengers: Age of Ultron hosts SNL with musical guest Zac Brown Band this Saturday night at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
