Tom Hanks is a national treasure. (Seriously, did you see him on SNL this weekend? So good.) Well, now he's made us love him even more by flawlessly recreating his famous rap from his 1988 movie, Big.

Filmmakers Wesley Chan and Phillip Wang of the Wong Fu Productions YouTube channel caught up with Hanks and fellow legend, Ron Howard, at the Florence, Italy premiere of their new film, Inferno. Wang was extremely starstruck (as anyone would be in the presence of Forrest Gump slash Woody from Toy Story), and asked Hanks if he would do the rap from Big with him. Hanks, being the gem of a human being that he is, of course obliged. (Skip to 3:30 in the video to see the rapping greatness.)

Twenty-eight years later and Hanks launched into the whole entire rap without skipping a beat. For reference, here's the clip from Big. He got every single word.

National. Treasure.
