We all know that Tom Hanks is a nice guy. In fact, his niceness and sense of humor have become almost legendary in Hollywood circles. So when he appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to promote his newest film, "Saving Mr. Banks," he decided to ring in the holiday season the best way he knows how: by making a Christmas card with Wiz Khalifa and one lucky audience member.

Hanks picked a "random" audience member, a woman named Rebecca who is visiting Los Angeles from Richmond, Virginia, to take part in the festive photo shoot. Right when they were about to take the picture, Hanks motioned for one of "Santa's helpers" to join them on the stage—who turned out to be hip-hop star Wiz Khalifa. Khalifa, it should be noted, looked a little dejected, kind of like an actual mall elf.

If you feel like skipping over some banter between Hanks and Kimmel, the heartwarming holiday moment starts at 1:15.
