A video of a Sudbury man singing his Tim Hortons drive-thru order has become an online hit.

Chris Taillefer wrote the song and recorded himself singing it at a Regent Street Tim Hortons drive-thru on Christmas Eve.

The video has more than 1.3 million views on Facebook.

Taillefer said he was hoping his little song would pick up people's holiday spirits. 

"It didn't really feel like Christmas to a lot of people, especially with there being no snow," he said.

In the video you can hear several Tim Hortons employees laughing as Taillefer orders coffee, a bagel, and Timbits to the tune of Jingle Bells.

"When I got to the drive-thru window everybody was huddled around the window to see who did it, giving me thumbs up and laughing, and said that it made their day," he said.

Unexpected hit

Taillefer said the video was posted on Facebook so he could share it with his friends and family. Now he's getting messages from people coast-to-coast.

"I just didn't expect it to blow up," he said. "But I guess that's what the internet does."

Taillefer said he hopes his video inspires others to put a smile on someone else's face over the holidays.

"It doesn't have to be a viral video," he said. "But it should be an everyday thing that we make people laugh and smile."
