In the video, he called out many Canadian cities, along with the B.C. spot.


“Oh come on, do you think I wouldn’t recognize Chilliwack, B.C?,” Hamm said. “Your desire to help one another has no peaks and valleys, consistently awesome and with so many beautiful mountains and waterfalls.”

Hamm is a celebrity face for the company SkipTheDishses and is part of a Community Support campaign.

The campaign allows customers to add a tip to their order, which goes directly to the restaurant you ordered from.

Since it began March 23rd, Canadians have donated $500,000 through the campaign, stated the company in a press release.

So far, Pink Lotus Pho in Surrey received the most donations across Canada.

Hamm isn’t the first actor to praise beautiful B.C. Chris Pratt recently gave a shout-out to Kamloops, while Ryan Reynolds praised a Surrey teacher.
