The ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ director is living a Marvel fan’s fever dream.
Taika Waititi is the spirit animal of every Marvel fan. The director stormed Comic-Con on Saturday, taking no prisoners. From his pineapple romper to his intimate moment with Chris Hemsworth, every second Waititi spent at the Con was magical. Hyping Thor: Ragnarok seemed to take a backseat in favour of enjoying the moment, and for that we thank him.
Check out some of his best moments:

Waititi’s day started early with an impromptu on-set photo shoot. The star of the shoot? His fresh pineapple-print romper.
Next up was a private jet charter with a few of his closest friends.
That 5 a.m. romper photo shoot seemed to really take it out of our guy. Imagine using Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as body pillows. Just imagine.
Love them all so much ❤Dying to see Thor Ragnarok & Avengers @markruffalo @twhiddleston @chrishemsworth @taikawaititi #sdcc #sdcc2017 #thorragnarok #marvel #avengers #tomhiddleston #chrishemsworth #taikawaititi #markruffalo #robertdowneyjr #Loki #lokilaufeyson #Thor #tonystark #Ironman #hottoys #actionfigures #onesixthscale #onesixthfigure #cosplay #thorki #hiddlesworth #dollphotography #dolls #dollphoto #toys #toyphoto #toyphotography #instadolls #instatoys
The moment has already been deemed fan art-worthy.

If you thought the nap bit was good, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Hemsworth planted one on Waititi during the Marvel panel in Hall H.
And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.

After the fact, Waititi reflected on the honor of sharing the stage with acting legend Naomi Watts… *cough* Cate *cough* Blanchett.

Post-panel, the good times just kept coming.
Really, Waititi is a fan just like the rest of us.

‘Wannabemes’ is correct. I’d say everyone at Comic-Con matches that description.
I see you, Taika. Keep living that dream life.
