Jayden K. Smith has nothing to do with Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith. The actual Jayden K. Smith was a famous pirate in 1746, who battled the British and local islanders in the Caribbean. Johnny Depp's character is based largely on him. He was well known for spreading rumors about his successes, though they were often untrue. When the Vikings and New York Giants attacked, he fled to Nigeria where he hired many locals to send messenger pigeons letting the world know that he would eventually conquer and steal everyone's friends and information.

Centuries later, people realized that would be ridiculous and impossible.

And yet, people still share the threat of Jayden K. Smith without going to Snopes.com first.
