“That limo pulled up, and it was the bride and groom trying to ‘get me to church on time,'” Hanks began.

“And they couldn’t do it because we had all this stuff going on. It was like, ‘Uh, how do we fix this?’ So, like a stalker, you know, “Hey miss, miss, miss!” I knocked on the window, I said, ‘Hey look, we got something, but you’d do me the honor of you’ escort to your nuptial altar?’ So we did it!”
