Having a Famous Dad Doesn’t Make You a Star

The apple sometimes falls far…far from the tree.

Tom Hanks has a son itching to break into the spotlight. No, we’re not talking about Colin Hanks (Orange County, Dexter). We’re talking Chet Hanks. Who is that, you ask? We don’t really know either…but we read about him on the interwebs.

His weapon of choice…R&B. I think? He’s going by the name Chet Haze, and is dropping a new single titled “Hollywood”. Kind of cliche, and I think he should of stuck with Chet Hanks for the sake of not looking like a douche. But maybe he’s on to something. I’m sure Poppa Hanks is proud of his baby boy. And I’m sure Tom’s PR is happy Chet is distancing himself from the Hanks dynasty.

The video is as cliche as the title of the song. He’s some kind of famous photographer who drives expensive cars, hooks up with supermodels, and gets followed around by paparazzi. Obviously not realistic, because this guy looks like a big nerd who never got a date to the prom. He’s not smooth enough to pull it off in my opinion. And what’s up with his face? Gym, TAN, laundry…bro. The song is decent, but it sounds produced to within an inch of it’s life. Nothing original or groundbreaking here. Just the same old generic pop song formula. C+ for effort. I don’t know, maybe I’m just jealous I don’t have an A-lister as a dad. Or that my parents never hugged me?

Well, anyway…don’t take my word for it. Decide for yourself.
