Oxford’s Will Smith Walks Red Carpet with Actor Will Smith

Will Smith, a student at NorthWest Community College, won a trip to Los Angeles to walk on the red carpet with famous actor Will Smith by responding to a tweet.

Smith was scrolling through Twitter when Netflix tweeted out a video of famous actor Will Smith telling all Will Smiths to respond to the tweet. It was later revealed that Netflix was working with the actor to promote his Netflix original movie, Bright.

“It was honestly overwhelming,” Smith said about meeting Will Smith, “When he was pulling up, and the Netflix team was telling us he’s here, I started getting so excited to the point where I was shaking.”

Netflix team told Smith they would be taking a picture and he ended up right next to the famous actor with his arms around him.

Smith couldn’t believe it at first that he had been chosen. It has been Smith’s dream to meet Will Smith and as Smith got older he thought it would never happen.

“I mean I wanted to believe it so bad and I started clearing my schedule and doing some shopping and things like that just in case it turned out to be real.” Said Smith.

Smith said Netflix allowed him to bring a plus one. Smith decided to bring one of his long time friends, and band mate in Delta Springs, Sam Stevens.

“Will Smith smiled the whole time and thanked us all for being there and was just genuinely nice and appreciative,” said Smith. “The trip was a blast and something we’ll never forget.”
