In efforts to step out of his father’s shadows, Tom Hanks’ son, Chet Hanx, formerly known as Chet Haze, has begun to forge a career with club music in mind.
Hanx released a video for his single “The Thirst,” just in case you didn’t pick up on his uber-whiteness from the track alone.
The video, filmed by Armen, encompasses a day in the life of this super hip street thug, which obviously entails – what else? – hooking up with prostitutes. He sings about how his woman comes after each call, accompanied by various shots driving in his car calling on women and then ending up with them in a hotel room.
The best part is the over-dramatized shots of water splats as a male voice whispers through your speakers the word “splash” (you can’t make this up) and the awkward white-boy dancing that starts at the two minute thirty second line. It’s actually painful to watch.
Luckily, after a few goes, the video does create some ironic hilarity and even may be worthy of a hardy drinking game to those who dare.
I think it’s safe to say that Colin is the Hanks’ best shot at a legacy.
