Yes that really IS the Castaway star dancing in Carly's next music video alongside Justin Bieber - and they met because of a hummingbird!
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…
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."
