Will Smith is getting “Shiggy” with it.
The icon-turned-Internet kingpin has taken social media by storm since joining Instagram in December. After recreating his son’s “Icon” video, the “Fresh Prince” takes on the Drake-inspired “In My Feelings” challenge that is sweeping social media.
After watching Ciara and Russell Wilson’s “Shiggy” in South Africa, Will was inspired to do his own version of the dance craze. During his last day in Budapest, where he is filming his movie Gemini Man, he climbed to the top of the Chain Bridge and did the “Shiggy.”
“There’s no way this is legal,” he said as he navigated the bridge with a camera in hand. Once he reached the top, he performed the choreography to Drake’s Scorpion cut “In My Feelings.”
“I’ma Keep It 💯… I was TERRIFIED up there,” wrote Will in the video caption. “That’s why my dance moves is all STIFF! Haha.”
His challenge earned praise from Drake himself, who commented, “Wow the video is done” with a checkmark emoji, while Justin Timberlake added, “FTW!”
During a recent interview with TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast, the 49-year-old legend opened up about his emergence as a social media star. “Social media demands authenticity,” said Smith. “Social media pushes you more and more into having you reveal what’s true. ‘Cause if you don’t, TMZ is going to. It’s a beautiful thing. I’m actually enjoying the push. Nobody’s happy that doesn’t get to be themselves. I’m enjoying the social demand for authenticity.”
Others including Kevin Hart, La La Anthony, and Drake himself have also taken the #InMyFeelingsChallenge.
