The actor is doing the epic stunt in honor of his 50th birthday.

Some people celebrate their 50th birthday with an expensive dinner or big party, but Will Smith would rather bungee jump over the Grand Canyon.

On Tuesday (Sept. 25) -- Smith's actual birthday -- the iconic actor will jump out of an helicopter over the national park. Fortunately for the general population, he is live-streaming the entire experience on his YouTube channel.

Part of the YouTube Original special Will Smith: The Jump, the global superstar will cross another task from his bucket list in the company of friends, family and YouTubers Yes Theory, the latter of who challenged the actor-rapper back in March. 

In an attempt to conquer his biggest fears, Smith boldly accepted the challenge from lifelong fans Yes Theory  -- who travel the world to seek discomfort and conquer their own personal fears as a living -- under the condition that the jump is done to raise awareness and donations for international organization Global Citizen’s education campaigns.


Believing that every child should have access to the transformative power of an education, the actor has partnered with Global Citizen through his own organization -- the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation -- to support their ongoing advocacy work on education.

The epic stunt will happen at 3:00 p.m PT/6:00 p.m ET. You can tune in via Will Smith's channel below.
