Tremble Pop: From Tom Hanks’ Balls to Your Ears

You may remember him as ‘student in library’ from Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but now Tom Hanks’ son Chester (or Chet Haze, as his homies like to call him) is breaking into the music business.

So far, he’s unleashed two songs onto the interwebs.  Generating the most buzz is this young emcee’s version of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” – tailored for Northwestern University (where Chet is a sophomore in theater). He calls this soon-to-be-chart-topping hit “White & Purple”.  For those of you that do not follow college football and are blissfully unaware of Big 10 Conference Schools, White & Purple are the university’s colors.

To be honest, I didn’t know who Wiz Khalifa was before this, because to my knowledge, his father wasn’t in Turner & Hooch.

According to NU’s newspaper, The Daily Northwestern, Chet asserts, “I’m not my dad. I am my own person.”

It’s true. His father has been a soldier, a wooden cowboy, a detective, a conspiracy theorist, a loveable doofus, a cop, a man with one red shoe, and a cross dresser – but he has never been a frat boy rapper.

Fun Facts: At the time of this posting, there’ve been approximately 151,000 views of the video.

Also at the time of this posting, there are approximately 170,000 students attending Northwestern University.
