So, this is pretty much everything. Dick Van Dyke was at Denny’s in Santa Monica, California with his barber shop quartet, The Vantastix, and they did a surprise performance of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” for patrons of the diner.
The 90 year old doesn’t miss a note; the performance was utterly perfect:
Van Dyke posted the video to his Facebook, and his fans have gone wild. One commenter from Brazil wrote “From a very early age I’ve grown used to associate Mr. Van Dyke to superb entertainment, a good laugh, nice songs; Bottom line: He is and always will be my favorite artist ! A big Olympic Hurrah to Mr. Van Dyke, from Brazil !”
It is rumored that he and Julie Andrews might make a cameo in the upcoming reboot of Mary Poppins, which might actually be too much for our hearts to handle. If this video proves anything, it’s that Van Dyke is definitely still capable.
We would have given pretty much anything to be in that Denny’s. There’s something we never thought we’d say.
