Open Post: Hosted By A Lip Synching Tom Hanks In Carly Rae Jepsen’s Video For “I Really Like You”

March 7, 2015 / Posted by:

“I Really Like You”, Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy-as-hell Taylor Swift-sounding follow-up to “Call Me Maybe”, has been violently humping my ears for a couple days now, and now it finally has a video I can watch while my ears scream for mercy. And for some random reason, it stars the human being a smile looks at when they need to cheer up, Tom Hanks. Why is Tom Hanks in a Carly Rae Jepsen video? Actually, who cares about the why; what’s important is the how, as in how high is watching Tom Hanks lip synching and dad dancing his adorable ass off taking me (answer: higher). By the way, does anyone know the name of the person responsible for the concept of this video? Because I would like to send them a muffin basket as a way of saying thanks for giving me something I had no idea I needed in my life. And that something is Tom Hanks lip synching to Carly Rae Jepsen.

I must warn you though, as wonderful as this video is, it takes a real sharp turn south around the 3:03 mark when Justin Bieber show up. But it’s easy enough to fix if you just cover the right 1/3 of the screen with your hand or a picture of Rita Wilson. There, problem solved!
