Will Smith will bungee over the Grand Canyon on September 25, the day he celebrates his 50th birthday. The jump will be shown live on the Smith YouTube channel that has 2.6 million subscribers.


Smith was challenged in March to jump on a rubber band from a helicopter by the makers of the YouTube channel Yes Theory.

Smith accepted the challenge under three conditions. He demanded that the proceeds of the stunt go to a charity. As a second condition, Smith stated that he had to be ready with film shots. And as a third condition, Will Smith suggested that he bungee over the Grand Canyon.

YouTube announced the stunt this weekend at a meeting of the Television Critics Association, where it appeared that the stunt will be shown live.
