Actor Will Smith decided to celebrate his 50th birthday with the thrilling feat after a dare was issued to him earlier this year by the YouTube group, Yes Theory with a breathtaking jump out of a helicopter.
With his hands on his head and a grin across his face, Will Smith described bungee jumping from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on Tuesday as being nothing short of “spectacular.”
The actor was reportedly dared earlier this year by the YouTube group and the move was also meant to be his own way of promoting awareness for Global Citizen’s education efforts.
His family and friends, including former co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, were on ground to cheer him on. And once he made it on the crash mat and was detached from the helicopter his family and friends breathe signs of relieve and hugged him.
Smith said, It’s spectacular. It’s spectacular. It’s spectacular,” he exclaimed before adding that he “would definitely do it again
“Nothing. Nothing will ever be scarier than that. It goes from complete, absolute terror to the most magnificent bliss you’ve ever felt in your life,”.
Falling backwards out of the helicopter, Smith screamed and hollered in an adrenaline-fueled euphoria. After cementing both feet back on terra firma, the actor reflected on the jump, “nothing, nothing will ever be scarier than that. It goes from complete, absolute terror to the most magnificent bliss you’ve ever felt in your life.”
The video captured him as he was lifted into the air, standing on the chopper’s side. Minutes later, after a countdown from five, the video showed him spring backwards with his arms out wide.
