Will Smith has become an elite level YouTube vlogger. He posts challenges and storytimes better than the rest of us and his latest video is a luxury family vacation vlog off the coast of Italy with gorgeous drone and underwater footage. Logan Paul who?
Will even ties it all up with an inspiring metaphor about scuba diving that can be applied to any things in life. “You need to get beyond fear back to a comfortable space before you can eve start looking around . . . Fear ruins life,” he says over a shot of a pink jellyfish.
YouTube is an underused platform for celebrities with large followings, access to top-of-the-line equipment, and education about filmmaking and storytelling. Will Smith is definitely a trailblazer, taking full advantage of this medium while making us all uber jealous.
