The audiovisual for “TikTok” finds Zaena x Jason Maek traveling back in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. The self-directed adaptation features cameos from Danielle Cohn, Joey Klaasen, and 18 of your favorite TikTok stars (with a combined reach of over 100 million followers).
Also, the music video highlights moments from the original tv show. Scenes include the Fresh Prince spinning on the throne, shooting some b-ball outside the school, and being chased by his grandmother.
“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”.
