After turning 50 this year, Will Smith set out to do a lot of things that he’s never done before. Some things like driving in NASCAR, going around the world and conquering his fears by skydiving over the Grand Canyon. Sounds crazy right? Well, another thing that Will did this year actually could have potentially saved his life.

Will’s doctor, Dr. Ala Stanford, advised that he take a colonoscopy after turning 50. So Smith not only agreed but also documented the whole thing on video.

“How’d you do? You did alright?” a nurse asks as Smith wakes up from the anesthesia, to which Smith jokingly responds, “The question is, did you guys do alright?”
