Will Smith Shares Hilarious Spoof of Jaden Smith's'Icon Video to Celebrate Album's Success

In celebration of his son Jaden reaching 100 million Spotify streams on his album SYRE, Smith chose to recreate the clip for the single "Icon", posting on Instagram late on Tuesday. The actor also shows off moon-walking in slippers and sports some grills, something he ends up struggling with.

"Icon" is a single off Jaden's debut album SYRE, which was named by some music publications as one of the best rap albums of 2017.

The music then cuts off so he can send his son a message: "I'm proud of you baby", Will gushed.

"Congrats on 100,000,000 @Spotify streams, Jaden!" the proud father captioned the video.


But in case you were anxious, it's more of a loving homage.

Far from being embarrassed Jaden more than appreciated the spoof from his Dad.

"Dad this is the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life", he commented on Instagram. "Keep Doin' You!" Watch both videos below. "Congrats I love you" he concluded the clip with, before leaving a heartfelt caption as well.

Superdad Will Smith pumped a little humour into his congratulations to his son Jaden, who recently released his first album.
