Jaden Smith Reprises his Role as Batman in New Video | V Magazine
Thought you'd seen the last of the white Batman costume Jaden Smith wore to Kim and Kanye West's wedding?
So had we, until today he released a video donning the famous suit once again, this time for his new song titled (you guessed it) "Batman." The video, which has admittedly very high production value, depicts Smith as the brooding superhero, however instead of Gotham, he has chosen the streets of Los Angeles as his stomping grounds. Just as the real Batman does, He runs around, occasionally getting into fights with other superheroes and getting in and out of a car with, much like the Batmobile, gull-wing doors (ignore the fact that his ride is most frequently a white Tesla SUV instead of a black sports car). You do have to admit, there are some similarities between the Caped Crusader and our real life celebrity. Both are children of wealthy parents, introspective people to the point it could be considered brooding, and as this video proves, have some moderately eccentric tendencies. As for the song itself, it doesn't really make much sense other than being a Batman-themed version of Future's "Jumpman." The video is the point, seemingly, and that's okay.
