Will smith released a “dad remake” of his son’s music video. It’s a testimony to the sense of humour that made Will Smith the famous actor and celebrity he is today.
After his 19-year-old son Jaden Smith surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify for his debut album “Syre,” Will Smith congratulated him on Instagram.
He wrote, “It is a delicious gift to a parent to admire his children. Keep Doin’ You!”
He posted a video in which he made a parody of Jaden’s music video for “Icon” along with this Instagram message.
Smith did it with precision, wearing a chain, denim jacket and fake grills just like Jaden, along with a similar hairdo. However, he added the dad element on top.
Jaden loved the video and commented, “Dad this is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life you’re the best father anyone could ask for thank you for allowing me to express myself even when I take it too far sometimes I love you more than you will ever know because you taught me how to love.”
The lyrics of "Icon" are an indication of Jaden Smith's swelling confidence. The video is about Will Smith playing catch-up with his son, who's forging his own identity.
