If you don’t follow Will Smith on Instagram, you’re honestly missing out big time. There’s funny videos, updates on his life and dad jokes, obviously. Also, in case you didn’t know, he recently became a YouTuber as well, and his vlogs are just straight up amazing.
And, he posts a lot of videos on Instagram, probably because of his new YouTube career. And he posted one such hilarious video last week which indirectly took a dig at his son Jaden Smith.
Just put up the first vlog from my Australia trip on @youtube. Link in bio. We bought some dumb ass camera gear! I am HAVIN’ A BALL!!!! 🙂
The video is funny as it is, but Jaden’s comments are even better.
Now, that was some indirect trolling, but Will probably tried to take it up a notch and made a whole freaking parody video about his son. Will may be new to the world of social media, but he has completely nailed it in just a short span of time.
Last year, Jaden released his debut hip-hop album, “Syre,” which recently reached 100 million streams on Spotify. To celebrate this incredible feat, Will did what any proud dad would do – made his own version of his son’s music video.
“It is a Delicious Gift to a Parent to Admire his children. Keep Doin’ You!” Will Smith captioned his post. Recreating a few seconds of Jaden’s ‘Icon’ video, Will obviously gave it his own twist, because well he’s the dad and he has all the freedom to improvise in the most hilarious way.
Congrats on 100,000,000 @Spotify streams, Jaden! @c.syresmith It is a Delicious Gift to a Parent to Admire his children. Keep Doin’ You!
Let’s compare some parts. Here’s Jaden, decked with gold chains and all, see he’s a proper rapper.
And, then Will trying his best with the chains.
Then, comes the song name.
Well, I have to give it to Will, he nailed this part.
The whole video is just Jaden dancing in front of a car.
But, Will is kind of having trouble with that it seems. He mocks his son’s stiff dancing and head swatting.
Also, a special mention for Will’s grill falling off, which was the best part of this parody.
Shortly after Will posted the video, Jaden replied –
I Love You

Along with that, he left a heartfelt message on the video as well.
If that doesn’t make you ‘Dad of the year’, then I don’t know what will. Seems like everyone agrees that he’s the coolest dad ever, and rightfully so.
