Tom Hanks can't get Carly Rae Jepsen's new song out of his head in this new video

New, 41 comments

It's been nearly a week since your girlfriend Carly Rae Jepsen dropped her new single "I Really Like You" on the world, and it's still stuck in our heads. (We don't actually have a problem with that, to be honest.) Now, after we were all but promised we'd see a music video featuring eternal It Guy Tom Hanks, here's the final product. And, in a knowing wink from Carly Rae herself, it's clear that she knows she can plant herself in your brain one more time.

A knowing wink from Carly Rae herself

Hanks is the star of the video from beginning to end, as he pretty inexplicably lip-syncs Carly Rae up and down the streets of New York's Soho neighborhood on his way to a shoot with Ms. Jepsen. It's like any other day in a celebrity's life — dealing with fans, dodging paparazzi, getting random Tinder love — but like having "Call Me Maybe" stuck in your head on your way to work, Hanks just can't stop singing this new song. It's everywhere, all up until the moment he gives in with reckless abandon and dances with a group of complete strangers down a deserted street. As commentary on viral fame goes, all this might be sinister if it weren't so adorable.

And then Justin Bieber showed up. Oh well. Whatever happens, get ready for this song to never leave your head ever.
