Plunging into a new decade … literally! Will Smith is embarking on an adrenaline-rushing adventure in honor of his 50th birthday.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum is set to bungee jump out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon in celebration of ringing in a new year of life on Tuesday, September 25. The jump — which is a challenge from Yes Theory — will air live on his YouTube channel at 6 p.m. EST. (Yes Theory is a YouTube channel whose mission is to challenge “what society considers normal.”)
Smith took to his Instagram page in anticipation of the event to share a series of pictures and videos in excitement.
“I think I have chosen my Helmet,” the West Philadelphia native captioned a pic of himself rocking the American flag-themed safety armor on Monday, September 24. “And My Face for the Jump! It’s going down tomorrow.”
He later posted a selfie with members of the Yes Theory team writing, “6 months in the making… #willsmiththejump.”
The Suicide Squad actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, also got in on the fun posting a hilarious, animated clip that shows a cartoon Smith jumping out of a helicopter.
“Here is what I love most about you turning 50 @willsmith … you are soaring high in your freedom and have more authentic happiness then I’ve ever seen you have before,” the 47-year-old Girls Trip star wrote. “You deserve every bit of it! Keep flying and keep doing you! Happy Birthday Willard!!! You make 50 look good!!!✨”
Smith first tried his hand at bungee jumping last year when he jumped in Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls.
Watch Smith’s live video on YouTube on Tuesday, September 25, at 6 p.m. EST.
