Hanksy went OG late last night with his latest holiday-themed creation. Located near the Myrtle/Broadway stop in Bushwick, this paster plops Tom Hanks on a turkey. And why not?

According to Hanksy:

This quick paltry poultry piece is dedicated to the upcoming gobble gobble holiday. Thursday is a day to gather with friends and cherish the actor’s vast film catalog. A time to laugh and cry and give t.hanks for all we have.

The T. Hanks turkey is a creative homecoming of sorts for the prolific street artist, who recently expanded his reach to include everything pop culture. Check out more of his output at the Krause Gallery on Orchard Street, where his “Young Puns 2” exhibit was recently extended through December 9.
