Social media star Logan Paul has officially called out actor Will Smith to participate in yet another bungee jumping challenge, after YouTube channel ‘The Yes Theory’ pulled off a similar stunt in late September of 2018.
Paul uploaded a video of an outdoor excursion with his roommates, during which he called out Smith in an humorous attempt at collaborating with the Hollywood star. The crew had ventured outdoors to go bungee jumping off ‘The Bridge to Nowhere’ in Azusa, California when Paul came up with the idea.
“Yo! I have a sick fucking idea,” Paul exclaimed. “We should get Will Smith and challenge him to do like, a bungee jump out of a helicopter.”
Paul went on to directly address Smith, adding that he should jump out of the helicopter over the Grand Canyon. However, Paul’s cameraman pointed out that ‘The Yes Theory’ had already accomplished the same feat – much to his apparent confusion.
While Paul was likely joking about his “challenge,” Smith’s bungee jumping stunt with ‘The Yes Theory’ quickly went viral across YouTube in a live event on September 25, 2018, and has garnered over 18 million views as of December 22.
The actor agreed to face his fears after being challenged by the YouTube group, admitting that he was “terrified of walking to the edge” of the Canyon during one of his visits as a child.
Smith’s unorthodox 50th birthday celebration landed him a spot on YouTube Rewind 2018, which quickly became the most disliked video on the platform.
