Jara Moravec has directed a wonderfully heartfelt and uplifting video for the long-awaited return of Belgian-born singer-songwriter Stromae.
Carly Rae Jepsen 'I Really Like You' by Peter Glanz
In an interesting turn of events, Tom Hanks - America's favourite 80's/90's era A-lister who strikingly resembles your dad happily declaring that he knows what Instagram is - graces us with his lip-synced rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen's latest brain-crack I Really Like You.
In the video directed Peter Glanz - whose background is in feature films and commercials for the likes Tommy Hilfiger and Marc Jacobs - Hanks takes selfies with fans, gets right-swipes on Tinder, and breaks out into a Glee-style musical dance number with Jepsen before Justin Beiber materialises out of the crowd to dance along. No derision is intended through the dad-comparison however. Any cringe-inducing eagerness on Hank's part to 'be down with the kids' is overpowered by his trademark mix of nobility and affable good-naturedness.
Also considering that problem-ridden America scrambles to modernise its Good Ol' American Values by renewing it hope in celebrity father-figures (especially after the bleakness in the wake of the allegations against previously-adored Bill Cosby) Hanks's return to our screens through the widest dissemination of American cultural output can't be a bad thing... right?
