Travis Barker re-creates the famous Forrest Gump scene for a promo video

In a promotional video for the drummer's "Run Travis Run" activities, Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian portrayed Forrest Gump and Jenny, respectively. Famous for his part in Blink-182, Barker portrayed characters from the classic 1994 movie, dressing as Forrest Gump in his trademark red cap, khaki slacks, blue checkered shirt, and Nike sneakers. 

Barker was seen sitting on a bench in the video that was posted on his Instagram, imitating the well-known bus stop scene from the film. Then the reality TV star got up and recreated Forrest's famous journey across America, substituting Barker's casual jog down a park trail.

Barker reflected on his personal journey in a statement, saying, “After my accident in 2008, more than 70% of my body was burnt. I was told by doctors that I may never be able to walk or drum again, so I set out to prove everybody wrong, including myself.”

He went on to say that he began his recovery with short walks and worked his way up to daily runs. He reached major personal goals this past year, finishing his first half marathon and taking part in other 5K run events.

“The running community is massive and I loved how everyone from all walks of life ran together and supported one another,” his statement read. “This is what Run Travis Run was built off of and we’re only getting started.”

The video, directed by Barker’s frequent collaborator Brandon Dermer, also featured Kardashian in the role of Jenny Curran, originally played by Robin Wright in the film.

Kardashian earlier talked about how they took their time to figure out the best living arrangement for their joint family, where children's comfort was the utmost priority. “Travis and I have really been taking our time with figuring out where it makes sense for us to live together because the kids are all so comfortable in their spaces,” she said.

Kim and Barker have planned properly to accommodate their expanding family. Kardashian said, "It feels like we kind of figured out a plan for now." To live together under one roof with the baby, they're going to renovate her house at the same time they moved into his house, which is a block away.
