If you haven’t had a good laugh today, the next video will do the trick. Tom Hanks sure is a funny guy, but his take on the show Toddlers and Tiaras is beyond funny. All his exaggerations are so smart, they just hit the spot. As he enters his daughter Sophia to participate in the Ms. Ultimate Sexy Baby pageant, his strive to be the best is hilarious. That hair killed me though! Please, don’t take it seriously, it’s a parody, and a pretty good one. Don’t forget to SHARE.
