The Oscar winner, 58, is the real star of the video. From waking up in his pajamas, to taking a taxi, and signing autographs, Hanks lip syncs the tune in its entirety. After a few text messages (those emoji skills!), and using Tinder, the Inferno actor meets up with Jepsen. The duo then hit the NYC streets for a dance party and are joined by Bieber, 21.
Jepsen, 29, first met Hanks at her manager Scooter Braun’s July 2014 wedding. Bieber, who also is managed by Braun, was in attendance too.
“I had been sent 15 different treatments [for the video] and I was reading them all and they were so romantic and sweet, and the song was already so sweet and romantic that I really wanted to have a flavor of like comedy or just a little to the left so Scoots and I were talking and were like, ‘What if it’s a guy who sings it?'” the “Call Me Maybe” singer recalled, via Radio.com. “I started stalking a few people who I loved and Scooter was telling this story to Tom Hanks at dinner and Tom’s like, ‘Why didn’t you guys ask me? I would do it.'”
“I felt so bad, as much as I was cold, Tom Hanks, did the meat of the work,” she added. “I really was in the trailer with a hot chocolate and hand-warmers and ear muffs like ‘Go Tom, do it again.’ He’s out in the cold, where you see your breath cut through the air. But he never complained once and he was such a trooper. Made me love him even more.”
