Are you a fan of Tom Hanks? Of course you are, who isn’t? Well one company in Philadelphia combined their love for the Oscar winner with their adoration of Thanksgiving. Ad agency Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners held their annual “Hanksgiving” potluck, where employees bring in dishes themed to Tom Hanks movies.
"You've Got Maildeleines"
They even roll a marathon of Tom Hanks movies all day for the occasion. As for decorations, there’s a rocket ship piñata called “Catch Me if You Candy” and lots of other “Hanksian” décor.
Last year, “Turnovers and Hooch” won first place. Senior Account Manager Kristin Filipovits was crowned this year’s winner with her “You've Got Kale Salad,” beating out “A League of Calzone.”
The company has reached out to Hanks’ people in the past to see if he might be able to do a “Google Hankout” to kick off the event. No answer from him yet, but there’s always next year Tom! Tell us what your "Hanksgiving" dish would be in the comments section below or on Facebook.
