    In a promotional video shared on the couple’s Instagram Stories, Travis Barker donned a red cap same as that of the iconic Tom Hanks’ character, Forrest Gump. The musician then re-enacted the famous cross-country running scene. The clip also featured Kourtney’s playful “southern drawl,” garnering heavy attention and nostalgia from fans.

    Netizens flooded the social media post with ample comments. One person also referred to her as “Jenny!“, a nod to Forrest’s love interest in the film. Other than the social media posts, Barker also has a website in place of the same name.

    On the website of his new venture, Barker opened up about how running became a crucial part of his recovery following a devastating 2008 plane crash. The accident claimed four lives and left Barker with severe burns over more than half of his body.

    After my accident in 2008 more than 70% of my body was burnt and I was told by doctors that I may never be able to walk or play drums the same again. I was never athletic and I never played sports but I immediately had this urge to prove everyone wrong including myself,” the musician wrote.
