Tom Hanks Explains Why He Loves Singing 'O Canada' in the Shower

Actor Tom Hanks isn't Canadian, but he probably sings Canada's national anthem more than most Canucks do. That's because 'O Canada' is one of only two ditties that he can sing well, especially in the shower, which is one of the few places where he feels comfortable singing.

"The shower is an interesting place because the echo is perfect," Hanks told BBC Radio 1 recently while promoting 'Toy Story 4.' "And the song that is perfect in my shower, in my register is either one of two things: Dean Martin's 'Everybody Loves Somebody Sometimes' or the national anthem of Canada."

And he even gave his interviewers a sampling of both songs. Check it out in the clip below to celebrate Canada Day.
