When Dick Van Dyke sings, you put down your bacon and listen!
The Dick Van Dyke Show star recently surprised fans at a Denny's in Santa Monica, California, when his a cappella group, Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix, burst into an impromptu version of the classic tune "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" from the film of the same name.
With his famous voice and his signature smile, the iconic entertainer brought all the feels, and the footage shows that clearly most of the lucky customers at Denny's couldn't resist documenting the joyous moment.

Five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy – and he's won the hearts of millions. Now, Dick Van Dyke is to receive his acting union's highest honor: the Screen Actors Guild's Life Achievement Award.
The tireless actor, 86, who's as comfortable with doing slapstick as he is with being suave, will be honored in January for his 60-year-plus career and his lifelong humanitarian accomplishments.
"Dick is the consummate entertainer – an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment,” says SAG-AFTRA co-president Ken Howard.
