Black Panther is more than just a movie – it’s a pop culture phenomenon. If you haven’t seen it in cinemas yet, go see it! Then you can be caught in the #blackmagic of the cast, costume, story-line and the fire soundtrack.
If you were worried Black Panther fever is fizzling out, not to fear – the content just keeps on coming.
The ‘nerd-sperts’ at content creating collective Nerdist.com have released a Black Panther parody of Jaden Smith’s viral video for Icon.
Check out the original:
Not only does the King of Wakanda (aka Young King) make an appearance, but he’s ticking all the ‘Icon’ boxes – distressed denim jacket, gold chains for days, and a flashy sportscar with even flashier dance moves.
If you thought they stopped at a simple re-enactment, Young King flips the script with some Black Panther-inspired lyrics: ‘I am a protector, you’re a menace/That’s why I have to fight like an Avenger,’ rhymes Young King. ‘Coming at the king I’ll put you on a stretcher/I am here and I’m still flexing.’
An unexpected summer bop that we’re all here for!
