Tom Hanks Sings Shimmy Shimmy Cocoa Pop From Big

If you grew up even partially in the 1980’s, the nonsensical secret-handshake song (and dance) that Tom Hanks’s character Josh and his best friend Billy did together probably goes through your head regularly (“I meant it, I said it, I stole my mama’s credit, sock me in the stomach three more tiimes”), so it’s a total DELIGHT that Tom Hanks performed it perfectly on Jonathan Ross’s BBC show last weekend. It turns out it was a song his son learned at camp, which makes total sense. Awesome:

Now we just need the little girl from Beaches to perform “Pouncer, Pouncer The Wonder Cat,” and all our ’80s movie made-up song dreams will come true.
