Will Smith and The Slow Mo Guys

Will Smith’s latest stunt as a casual daredevil feels like a re-enactment of his new movie Gemini Man. The 51-year-old actor spent some time with The Slow Mo Guys this week to conduct a series of exploits involving three Will Smiths that were rather explosive, but mesmerizing at a snail’s pace.

The video opens up with the three Smiths -- a mannequin with a face cutout of his younger self from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, another mannequin with a face cutout of his current self and “The Flesh Prince” himself.

Gavin Free, one-half of the slow mo duo, gave Smith a flamethrower to ignite his younger self, which is eerily similar to the plot of his recently released action thriller, where older government assassin Henry Brogan (Smith) is targeted by a younger version of himself. This time around, the older Smith beats him to the punch.

“You dirty, young me trying to kill old me!” he yells at the first mannequin before extinguishing it. The intense slow-motion shot captures the unwavering rage on his face, which leads him to taking on more “humanoid targets,” like a car.

“Ooh, a potato cannon is perfect!” he exclaims for his next venture. “The potato cannon is interesting because you got a little bit of like Mischief Night that’s involved with that. You know? It’s a little Halloween vibes.”

He also plays real-life Fruit Ninja by using a blade to perfectly slice a watermelon in half. “Ooh, that was like butter!” Free yells during the aftermatch.

Watch all of the damage these two did below.
