These Canadian men singing at Tim Horton’s are endearing and kind of beautiful. That’s one good thing about being old, you can do crazy shit and nobody bats an eye.

    Epic song, epic movie, epic old men in an epic country. Canada baby!

    So one of those guys is wearing a name tag of sorts. Is this some reunion of a brotherhood? Don't recognize the song.

      The song is from the Lion King. The guys themselves are "barbershoppers", people devoted to preserving the old barbershop quartet style of 4-part acapella singing. Obviously they sometimes sing newer songs arranged in the old style. These men are probably out after a rehearsal or convention, thus the name tag.

      I know all this because I am a barbershopper as well, and have even sung this arrangement before. There's a documentary on barbershop singing called American Harmony that's available via Netflix streaming if you're interested in learning more about it. But enough of my grand-standing. Cool video!

      Did you not have a childhood?
      Have you seriously never watched the Lion King?

    Only at Tim Hortons.

    • Dirk Diggler

      I could really go for a large double double right now. We need some Hortons down here in DC.

    These guys are pretty good. I can honestly say after sitting through that entire video, I enjoy these guys singing more than Nicki Minaj!

    • Jay Low

      How do you know how much Nicki Minaj enjoys these guys singing?

    • Alex

      And Way more than Bieber! :P

    Brilliant! I wonder how often this sort of thing happened before the flash-mob concept was popularized. Either way, what a great surprise for anyone that was sitting in Timmy's sipping on a large double-double and munching on a 20 pack of Timbits.

    did anybody else have a childhood flahback. oh, to be 6 again.

  • Tony G

    TBH, I was waiting for a dog to start howling.

  • Rollee

    VERY, VERY NICE! This is not a random thing. These men are obviously members of a chorus group of some sort who are very well rehearsed. This may have been a 'Flash Mob' thing. In either case a very Nice performance! Kudos to the young men!

    • all good fun

      Definitely a Barbershop chorus. My dad is in one and they frequently will go for a meal after a concert or practice and sing songs in the pub. Brings a smile to the face.

    That was amazing. Just the happy looks from all of these men together put a huge smile on my face.

    I bet they all went for a lemon party after this

    • boom

      AAAAAAAhahahahahahahah. i like the clip but that was an epic comment.

  • KnowsIt

    Why is there never a link to the place the Chive stole this from?

  • BillWallace

    This is the Scottish equivalent.

    Kind of sad, actually. Had these been younger people, that's the kind of shit that inspires those 'Limit: 3 Young People'.
    Some stores, particularly Asian-owned stores and Dollar Trees attempt to keep young adults out, even if they have an ID proving themselves over eighteen.

    • nik

      Tim Hortons is national…. They can be found everywhere in Canada.

      • Bev

        Timothy Hortons is in some parts of Europe actually. My sister teaches there right now. She told me the coffee just isn't the same though. The atmosphere is too different. Keep it in Canada!

    Lila. although Annie`s st0rry is flabbergasting, last thursday I got a top of the range Lotus Esprit after making $9798 this past month and just a little over ten-grand last-munth. with-out a doubt this is the coolest job I have ever had. I began this seven months/ago and almost straight away started to bring home over $78, per-hour. I went to this site, Bing30.ℂℴℳ
