Tom Hanks Doing the Rap From Big Video

Watch Tom Hanks Perfectly Recite His Rap From Big 28 Years Later

No human being is perfect, but Tom Hanks comes pretty close. While in Florence, Italy to promote his latest film in The Da Vinci Code franchise with director Ron Howard, Inferno, the actor and wedding crasher hopped in a video with YouTube filmmakers Wesley Chan and Philip Wang, who had one simple request for him: to recite his rap from Big. The 1988 comedy about a young boy who wakes up as an adult after wishing to be "big" at a carnival captured the hearts of many, and he was happy to oblige. Without a second of hesitation, Hanks — who sadly wasn't wearing a pumpkin suit — perfectly broke out the "shimmy, shimmy cocoa pop" lyrics. Impressive as it is, we won't be truly in awe until he performs the piano routine he did in FAO Schwarz. While we wait for that to happen, compare the original rap below with his latest rendition!
