Will Smith Brings Back His Lighter Side With a Dance Video, Post the Oscar Debacle

The Will Smith we grew up knowing was a funny, light-hearted man. The man that turned his rapper identity into an A-list Hollywood celebrity. During the process, fans have seen his highs and lows through time, and even his rock bottom. The I am Legend actor won Oscar and several awards throughout his thirty-plus years in the industry. Unfortunately, the built-up image began crumbling pretty quickly at the same awards this year.

The much-discussed incident of Will willingly slapping Chris Rock across the face during the Academy records raised a lot of eyebrows. The family man acted out in defense of his wife, getting himself banned from the awards for a decade. While the aftermath of the event refuses to die down, Smith seems to be trying to move on now. In a video uploaded by him, the actor is all smiling as he grooves along to the music.

Will Smith shows his fun side dancing in a video

Will Smith recently celebrated his 54th birthday, and he seems to be taking a break from all the negative attention. In an Instagram post, The Men in Black actor used a waves filter to creatively make up a dance video. He is grooving to the song Zaptaeando Juyayay by Jayac, with the caption “I’m a genie in a bottle baby #Ecuador.” The video begins with his hands together above his head, then squatting sideways. This may remind you of his character Genie from the Disney live-action movie Aladdin (2019).

The actor has a whooping 63+ million followers on Instagram, who are kept entertained by regular posts and a lot of videos. This one in particular received more than 23 million views and 2 million likes. Thousands of fans, including known figures, all praised seeing the actor happy and encouraged him.
