Dick Van Dyke Wows ‘Em at Denny’s
That irrepressible multi-talented 90-year-old living legend Dick Van Dyke brought a sample of the contagious joy he loves to spread to breakfast at a local Denny’s in Los Angeles, much to the delight of the customers.
Van Dyke and his quartet, the Vantastix, stopped off at Denny’s after a visit to “Good Day LA” last Friday to promote their upcoming show in Cerritos, Van Dyke’s book “Keep Moving: And Other Tips and Truths About Aging”, and their album “Put On A Happy Face”. They broke into an impromptu rendition of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and customers broke out their cell phones to capture that very special treat.
We’ve always been in awe of Van Dyke’s incredible talents, and speaking of “Put on a Happy Face,” that song comes from “Bye Bye Birdie” our favorite Dick Van Dyke film.
We’re also very partial to “Chim Chim Cher-ee” from “Mary Poppins”
