Tom Hanks’ son learned ‘Shimmy Cocoa Pop’ song at summer camp

Tom Hanks learned the “Shimmy Cocoa Pop” song he famously sings in the 1988 movie Big from his son Colin, who taught it to his dad after returning home from summer camp when he was 10.

All these years later, Hanks still knows every word to the children’s song as evidenced by this video.
