Tom Hanks Brings His Own Mistletoe To 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Tom Hanks was feeling festive on "The Late Show With David Letterman" (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) and to get everybody else in the mood he brought along a sprig of mistletoe so he could record a very special Christmas greeting.

Getting up-close and personal with the camera, Hanks leaned right in, said "Merry Christmas, Baby," and then planted a big wet sloppy kiss on the lens. Ever the gentleman, Hanks then grabbed some Windex and a cloth, and cleaned off his lip prints.

Later, after ribbing host David Letterman about his inability to type fast, Hanks threw down the gauntlet, boasting that he can type "hangin' and bangin'"in less than one second. Challenge accepted, Letterman gave him control of the "Late Show" desk.

Unfortunately for Hanks, his typing prowess didn't quite match up to his bragging, and all he could manage was "kgi n and bangin."
