“We had so much fun on set with everyone. We flew everyone out to Chicago and got the video done in two days. It was an ambitious project, but we wanted to kick the new year off right with something refreshing.” – Jason Maek

Zaena x Jason Maek has a history of creating hilarious music videos. This time, putting a modern spin on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was a no-brainer for the duo. Also, there are a few other key moments to spot. Athletic brand, Wilson, premiered their Fresh Prince-inspired basketball in the video. Furthermore, MVMT watches and Vita Coco debuted new products in various scenes.

“‘The Fresh Prince’ is my favorite show of all-time. We wanted to bring it to life for a new generation using faces they would recognize. Our goal was to recreate everything from the extended intro, including the airplane scene that was cut out later. There is a little ‘Parents Don’t Understand’ in there also.” – Zaena

‘TikTok’ is the first single from Zaena x Jason Maek since completing their sold-out tour, entitled, “The Freshman Tour”.
