Tom Hanks Stars in New Carly Rae Jepsen Music Video

By MARYAM OUTLAW

Carly Rae Jepsen recently released a music video for her new single “I Really Like You,” featuring a very unexpected A-lister: Tom Hanks.

Depicting a light-hearted day in the life, Hanks can be seen waking up in the wee hours of the morning, high fiving random pedestrians, texting emojis, and eventually joining Jespen for an extravagant dance number, all while lip-synching her lyrics.

Of course, the first thing that comes to mind when people think of Jepsen and her whimsical pop music world probably does not involve the two-time Oscar winner. However, the two happen to be a lot closer than we thought.

According to CNN.com, Hanks and Jepsen’s manager, Scooter Braun, are good friends. So, when she mentioned the idea of a man singing her song for the music video, he offered to play himself.

However, Hanks is not the only star to collaborate with Jepesn. Justin Bieber also makes a 30-second cameo.

While Hanks is set to release three new films this year, Jepsen’s record already has six million hits on YouTube. She currently has no release date for her next album.
