NEW YORK — Carly Rae Jepsen’s new music video for her hit song “I Really Like You” will leave viewers something to, well, really like.

Actor Tom Hanks dominates the whole video, lip-syncing and goofing off through most of the song.

Hanks wasn’t alone, though. The video also has a guest cameo by Jepsen’s pal, Justin Bieber. It all culminates in a fun dance number at the end including Jepsen, Hanks and Bieber.

The video also features multiple references to Hanks’ movies, including Forrest Gump and Cast Away (pay close attention to the emojis at 1:27).

According to reports Jepsen and Hanks met at the wedding of Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, last year.

“Scooter was telling the story [of the video] to Tom over dinner, and Tom apparently said ‘Why not me? Why didn’t you ask me?” Jepsen told Access Hollywood. “I got a call three days before Christmas from Scoots being like, ‘Do you think Tom Hanks would do?'”
