Customers at Denny’s received an extra special treat in addition to their meal as beloved actor Dick Van Dyke surprised them with a rendition of an iconic song.
Dick has experienced a storied career in Hollywood, which has spanned decades. He has had roles in several classic television shows and movies.
Back in the 1960s, Dick was the main character in his own sitcom with The Dick Van Dyke Show. He also danced with cartoon penguins in the Disney classic “Mary Poppins.”
A few years after the film about the magical nanny, Dick followed that up by starring in another beloved movie. This one was about a flying car, “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”
As the YouTube video shows, Dick and members of the Vantastix were enjoying a meal at a Denny’s in Santa Monica, California when they broke out in song. They sang the theme song to the 1968 film “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”
