Will Smith Forced His Family To Go All Out For Christmas—And They're Definitely Making Spirits Bright 😂
Instagram

Believe it or not, Will Smith has been on social media for just a touch over a year. He's made sure to do it big, though. In his first year on Instagram with the rest of us, he's managed to go viral a few times, dance on top of some monuments, hit us with several amazing duck face selfies, bungee jump from a helicopter, help encourage and highlight inspirational young people from all over the world, and give us all some serious behind-the-scenes access to his family life.

He was really new last year so, let's be honest, his holiday game was kind of weak. Funny, but weak.

See, Christmas is Jada Pinkett Smith's jam. It's been pretty well known through most of her career that homegirl loves Christmas.

Will, on the other hand...well, he tries, but it's hard to compete with the holiday cheer of someone who might be an actual elf. This year he decided he'd had enough with everyone leaving Jada to handle the holly jolly by herself. The Smith clan was gonna feel this holiday season whether they liked it or not! And of course he made sure to catch as much of it as he could for the 'Gram. Things started when Jada went ham on the lights in the living room and it snowballed from there. Will decided there was no way the family could stand in that living room with all those lights and not join in. So he bugged everyone until they got decked out appropriately. Even his eldest son, Tre, tried showing up late thinking that he'd be safe...but nope!

Parents out there will be quite familiar with Jaden's total disinterest.

Not to worry, though. Jaden perked up and joined the fun when his dad decided to make everyone sing Christmas songs. He proposed singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and even went so far as to make cue cards (extra is as extra does, you guys) but Willow refused. She said the song sounded like a bad night to her. Will asked why, and Jaden grabbed a camera. You can hear Jaden chuckle in the background and go "let me film this conversation." He absolutely knew what was about to go down.

Dad and daughter laughed and made points back and forth but Willow emerged victorious.

Jaden held the camera to Will's face and said, "That's round one." Will jokingly asked, "How'd I do?"


Having failed at the singalong, he moved on to making fun of Jada, her height, and her love of the movie Elf. He made a movie poster inserting her where Will Ferrell would normally be. Honestly, it's pretty well-done and I'd be down to watch a version of Elf where Jada Pinkett Smith kicks people in the face a lot and drops some sassy-but-hilarious one liners. If anyone can turn this into a reality it's the Smith family.

Jada looks really excited about kicking stuff.


Eventually they got it together enough for a family portrait, and this is possibly one of the greatest celebrity couple holiday photos we have ever laid eyes on.


People loved the "Christmas with the Smiths" updates.

So do we! We can't wait to see what shenanigans they get into next year...and if Jada manages to snag a role in a karate-themed Christmas movie.

Some people truly think the world revolves around them, which is why it's so satisfying to see them get what they want.

Consider: When was the last time you saw someone in public freak out in a store and demand to speak to the manager? Did the manager acquiese? Or did they stand up for their employees?

We're used to hearing about employees getting the short end of the stick, of course. But the moments when things go the other way—and a terrible nuisance finds themselves unable to get what they want—is truly a sight to behold.

In short: Saying "no" or putting people in their place is the ultimate power move.

Considering how much money these films make, I understand that I am in the minority when I say that Marvel films have absolutely overstayed their welcome. What once seemed fairly innovative—the current generation of the MCU really took off when Iron Man proved to be a tremendous hit—now feels stale.

I accept it, though. These films are not for me and never have been. That's okay. But it'd be great if we could have more room for other great blockbuster films other than yet another superhero movie.

People Confess Which Things They Find Absolutely Cringeworthy

We've all displayed embarrassing behavior or actions at one point or another, and we can't seem to shake off the regretful moment.

It just replays in our minds like an endless boomerang.

We are equally embarrassed for those who may have done something spontaneously foolish and have no clue of the mortifying impact of their actions.

Sex. It's great, but there can be a lot of drama involved.

We're human, how could there not be?

One way to make it easy is to say the right name when you're in the heat of things.

Seriously, we know this sounds like a small thing, but it's monumentally important.

Make sure you know your date's name.

If you don't, take your date to Starbucks and have it written on their cup.

It might be REALLY important later in the evening.
