Tom Hanks stars in Carly Rae Jepsen’s music video for 'I Really Like You'

Tom Hanks stars in Carly Rae Jepson's music video

Tom Hanks stars in Carly Rae Jepsen's music video for her new single "I Really Like You," released last Friday.  

In the video, Hanks wakes up to his alarm at 5 a.m. and starts lip-syncing to the song: "I really wanna stop but I just gotta taste of it..."

Hanks gets ready for his day and walks down the street lip-syncing, fist-bumping and taking selfies with fans he passes along the way.  

He hails a cab and texts Jepsen -- with lots of emojis -- before passing two women who swipe-right on Hanks' Tinder profile.  

Hank meets up with Jensen to dance along to the song, and then Justin Bieber shows up.  

Jepsen's manager, Scooter Braun, is friends with Hanks and shared his idea for the music video with the Oscar winner over dinner, according to ABC News.  

"He was telling him how I had this vision for like a male lead, that I wanted to have this guy sing the song rather than me, and I thought it would be really comedic and funny, especially if it was someone totally unexpected," Jepsen told ABC News. "And Tom was like, 'Well, why don’t you guys ever ask me?' "

Bieber, who arranged for Jepsen to be signed to Braun's record label after hearing her song "Call Me Maybe," was in New York during filming.  

"He was like, 'I'm coming down.' And we're like, 'Great...we're gonna do, like, a flash mobby-type dance at the end, so come be a part of it!' "

"I Really Like You" is the first single off Jepsen's upcoming album, which doesn't yet have a name or a release date. The music video for the single has had over four million views, so far.
