“There’s no such thing as a perfect name,” said Nikolai Gogol in a novel named The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. They named Gogol after a Russian writer of the same name. He hates his name at a certain age for certain reasons. However, ultimately, he understood the value of his name, accepts it and embraces it. Well, now Will Smith must feel the same. He must also love his name, as there are his namesakes as well all around the world.
The streaming giant worked with Will Smith in 2017 in the movie called Bright. It is an American urban fantasy action movie. The movie is set in an alternate present in which humans and mythical creatures co-exist. While promoting the Netflix Original, the OTT platform organized a special meeting for the actor. But why should the actor love his name? What is so special about it?
Will Smith meets Will Smiths from all over the world
Netflix has streaming services in about 190 countries. When it launched the movie Bright, it wanted Smith to promote it in all those countries. Now, it was difficult for the actor to attend promotional events in 190 countries. Therefore, the streaming platform arranged a special meeting for people from all over those countries. Now, the special thing about it was, as Smith himself spoke in the video, “all of these people are around the world named Will Smith.”
Yes, all these people are named the same as the actor himself. They got all the name-twins together, and they all promoted the movie in their countries. Well, the surprise doesn’t end here. On the talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, there was another man whose name was also the same as the actor. And when he introduced his wife to everyone, it would surprise you to know that her name was Jada Smith. Talk about a coincidence.
