Tom Hanks Lip-Syncs to Carly Rae Jepsen in the “I Really Like You” Music Video

If you are human, you spent most of the past week with Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” burrowing into your head like some sort of power-pop parasite. There’s little point in escape: the only way to survive the tune’s sticky melody is to embrace it, and now it has a music video that features Tom Hanks doing just that.

Hanks illustrates perhaps the defining aspect of Jepsen’s songs: liking them inherently involves singing along. The actor spends the video lip-syncing “I Really Like You” as he navigates his usual life, texting Jepsen every now and then and joining her and Justin Bieber for a suitably saccharine dance in the town square. Enjoy.
