Will Smith and his socials have a way of attracting rib-tickling moments. His humor and wit have no bar of limit, even when it comes to his kind. While his share of memes featuring children has a fanbase of its own, his mimicking his children has an eclectic cult of its own. Such was also the case when the Hancock actor parodied Jaden Smith’s music single back in 2018.

Jaden Smith’s eminence in the music world is no joke. His single, ‘Icon’, has been an anthem to the generation. But even more than his, Will Smith’s parody of his song struck the chord harder. Donning a short and a ripped denim shirt, the rapper had taken the lieu of comical strings to celebrate his son’s song hitting 100M views. Therefore, while one might celebrate the icon living, there is no competition for the father’s iconic moments, especially given that the parody garnered over 3.5 million views.
