In 1988’s Big, Tom Hanks showed the world that not only was he a talented actor, but that he could also spit some serious bars. But what’s more impressive is that the actor still remembers the rap from the famous scene after 28 years.

In a short video posted to the YouTube channel Wong Fu Productions, filmmakers Wesley Chan and Philip Wang caught up with Hanks and director Ron Howard during the Inferno premiere in Florence, Italy. After a very brief Q&A, Wang was able to get the actor to perform the iconic rap — which Hanks recited with perfection.

Watch the video below. 

Hanks’ new film, Inferno, is set to release on Oct. 28.
