However, it is not the only thing Smith has made headlines for. If the Slapgate incident is eliminated, he is a decent man. In the modern world, where children are ahead of their parents, Smith has shown the world that he is not at all behind his children. And he has proven it by imitating one of his son’s music videos way back in 2018.

How Will Smith replicated his son’s music video in 2018

4 years ago, Jaden Smith made a music video in collaboration with another rapper Logic, also known as Sir Robert Bryson Hall II. The video was called ‘Iconic’ and got quite popular among the fans. Shortly after the video was released, the Men in Black actor decided to impersonate Jaden from a separate video of his that was released.

In the Facebook video, Smith even decided to go for the whole look Jaden had in the video. However, he did add his own inputs to the video, like funny socks and slippers, through which somehow he was trying to do a moonwalk. Although by the end of the video, he said to his son, “I am proud of you, baby! One hundred million streams? Congratulations, man! Congrats, I love you.”
