Will Smith made his 50th birthday one to remember. On Tuesday (Sept. 25), the actor successfully bungee jumped out of an helicopter over the Grand Canyon. He live streamed the entire experience on his YouTube channel, featuring his whole family and an important member of his Fresh Prince family, Alfonso Ribeiro, known as the beloved Carlton.
“Nothing will ever be scarier than that. It goes from complete absolute terror to the most magnificent bliss you ever felt in your life,” he told Ribeiro upon landing safely on the ground.
Viewers at home, including Queen Latifah and Juicy J, flooded the Twittersphere with reactions to Smith’s adventurous stunt, and some even referenced the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode where Hilary Banks’ boyfriend Trevor dies from a bungee jump in an attempt to propose to his girlfriend.
