Tom Hanks has a son (not that one…another one) who thinks he is a rapper. This is not a joke and/or viral ad. Warning: this post contains 100% Hanks family unintentional comedy.
If you have often wondered “I like Tom Hanks and all, but would his Everyman-persona translate into a viable hip-hop career?”, well, clearly you have not seen any of the promotional materials for the 1987 film “Dragnet“.
Someone needed to keep the Hanx flame alive, and none other then Chester “Chet” Hanks, AKA Chet Haze AKA Tom Hank’s kid, did.
Ever wonder what life at Northwestern University looks like filtered through the eyes of a super-entitled rich kid? Wonder no longer.
Take it away, Chet!
There aren’t many hard and fast “rules” in the hippy-hoppy music scene, but I’m pretty sure one of them is “If your dad is Tom Hanks, you will never be a rapper.”
