You have probably already heard of the #InMyFeelings challenge which has taken over the internet and social media. It is the latest viral dance-off, and it was started by Instagram star Shiggy.

Since he posted his video, celebrities such as Russell Wilson and Ciara, Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson, Lala Anthony and others have gotten in on it, posting videos of themselves dancing to Drake’s “In My Feelings” as they pantomime along to the lyrics.


If I had to pick my faves, it would be Sterling and Susan, but a video surfaced today that made me wonder “what did we do before Will Smith was active on social media?”

The rapper, actor, superstar dad and overall renaissance man is not one to let a viral meme or the opportunity to entertain his fans with videos of himself being a regular degular ass black dude pass him by, and this is no exception.


Smith posted a video of himself in Budapest on Thursday, watching the Russell Wilson and Ciara video. He then looks out his hotel window and shows his view of the famous Chain Bridge. The next thing we know, Smith is climbing to the top of the bridge to complete his version of the challenge.



Will Smith just upped the ante and won this challenge. Y’all can all stop now.

The only way someone could beat him is to do it on top of either the Sears Tower (I know that’s not the name no more, shut up), the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty.


Just don’t get arrested doing it.

It’s STILL it’s name. And ‘Willis’ can go take a leap off the top along with Arnold and Mr. Dummond and Mrs. Garrett.

Don’t apologize for nothing. It’s the Sears Tower no matter who buys it.
