Carly Rae Jepsen brought along some superstar friends for her long-awaited return to music with her infectious hit song 'I Really Like You' - but you'll never guess how she met Tom Hanks… 

Watch Carly Rae Jepsen perform her new song 'All That'

Carly managed to rope in both Justin Bieber AND Hollywood legend Tom Hanks to star in her new music video - but Tom only ended up in the promo due to a chance meeting thanks to a stray hummingbird. 

Carly revealed to Capital that the pair had a chance meeting at her manager Scooter Braun's wedding. She revealed, "There was a hummingbird caught in one of the wedding tents and I saw a man walk towards it and for some reason I thought he was going to try and swat the bird. So I ran over there and grabbed his arm and screamed 'Don't hurt the bird!' and he turned around and I was like 'Tom Hanks!'." 

Thankfully Tom was also trying to help the bird get free - but what a random chance meeting! 

"Best day ever," Carly tweeted, while Justin also posted: "Today was a great day. I need some rest :) #IReallyLikeYou video is gonna be amazing."

We CANNOT get enough of these lot dancing in downtown Manhattan with some SERIOUS moves on the go. What do you think?
