It’s one of the best performances from the Oscar winner to date…
Tom Hanks was caught on camera impersonating a frat boy, posing with a fan in three photos, as they both pretended to be soggy drunk. The duo’s act has since gone viral, generating nearly three million views since they were posted on Wednesday.
A Reddit user by the name of groucho29 posted a link to the photos that were published on Imgur, directing people to evidence of the stunt.
“My friend met Tom Hanks, stole his glasses and pretended to be wasted,” the Reddit link reads.
As the caption suggests, the photos reveal the twenty-something friend, in a striped hoodie next to the A-list actor in a booth at a restaurant.
In one shot, the fan slumps on Hanks, the actor’s glasses crooked on his face. Tom plays along, squinting his eyes at the camera flash. On the table is a plate of pizza and a half-drank beer.
Another photo shows the kid in full out passed out mode, laying out on the table – his face in the tomato pie - as Tom points to him looking somewhat concerned.
The final shot shows Tom in the middle of an aggressive laugh. The actor points at the kid, now sleeping on his arm, as he cackles.
Needless to say, these pics boost Tom up a couple notches on the coolness scale.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, the photos were taken at a North Dakota restaurant. Tom was on vacation with his wife Rita Wilson. The couple of 24 years were reportedly spotted at a diner in West Fargo last week.
