TIME Buckwheat Groats

Of Course You Want To Watch a NSFW Rap Video About Tom Hanks

"Meg Ryan on my phone, b--ch I'm Tom Hanks"

If you ever wanted to see Tom Hanks star as Tony Montana in a reboot of Scarface, this new video from Buckwheat Groats may be as close as you get.

“There are a lot of great actors out there in the world/ Vince Vaughn comes to mind/ David Duchovny…” starts the song, but for Buckwheat Groats, no one comes close to Tom Hanks.

“Tom Hanks”, the band’s fittingly-titled homage to the star, features the band singing about Hanks’ professional successes (“$8.5 billion at the box office!”) and career highlights (“Back-to-back Academy Awards! Four Golden Globes!”) with a catchy chorus of “Hanks, Hanks, b–ch I’m Tom Hanks.”

Since there’s no such thing as too much Tom Hanks, the video for the rap homage also features the famed actor. Not only is the Forrest Gump star’s face slapped into debauched scenes of drugs and strippers, but the video also bedazzles scenes from Hanks’ filmography (like Big and Bosom Buddies) with the added sparkle of guns, cocaine and pantsless women.

While Hanks has won many accolades over his decades-long acting career, undoubtedly this rap homage will be the highlight. Unless, of course, as the song suggests, it makes him “vom Hanks”.
