Here’s the video of the day: The Oakville, Ontario chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society showed up at a Tim Hortons in Toronto, and treated a room full of Timmies patrons to this lovely rendition of “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”. It’s truly exceptional, the whole thing. Gawker has the scoop:
Every Monday after they finish rehearsing, members of the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Oakville Chapter head down to their favorite Tim Hortons and order a cup of coffee and a donut.
Danfi Parker also frequents the same Timmies, and happened to be there during The Entertainers’ weekly visit.
“They had a little whistle thing to set the pitch and then they just started singing,” he told the Toronto Star.
We knew that Tim Hortons was important to the Canadian People, but we had no idea these places doubled as a sort of community bandstand. We do know that you can get a donut for $.49 Canadian cents with purchase of hot beverage at participating Timmies locations. They also publish annual sustainability and responsibility reports for their coffee buying, which is awesome.
But seriously, how cute is that video?
