Almost 50 years after the release of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” actor Dick Van Dyke broke out into an a cappella performance of the song at a Denny’s restaurant.
On Facebook, Van Dyke wrote, “Breakfast at Denny’s, with a side of grits makes me want to sing!!”
In the video, the 90-year-old actor sits at a table in the diner chain’s Santa Monica, California location and sings the song with three other men, receiving applause and cheers from surprised diners.
“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” was released in 1968 and also starred Sally Ann Howes and Lionel Jeffries. In 1969, it was nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe in the category Best Music, Original Song.
