Will Smith forces Jaden and Willow Smith to perform for the camera while vacationing at sea

He lives with a family of entertainers and performers, and Will Smith did his best to get a performance out of them while on vacation on a yacht in Greece.

The 50-year-old actor shared a video to Instagram Wednesday in which he tried to get a clearly uninterested Jaden Smith, 21, and Willow Smith, 18, to trend online.

The clip followed another frenetic post from his yacht the day before that also included his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, 47.

The video opens with Willow reading a book in a chair in the shade while draped in a gray blanket, as Jaden lies out on the bench, soaking up the sun.

‘All right guys, look, we’re on vacation, all right? And you guys look really comfortable, OK?’ Will says.

‘But, we’ve gotta do something that trends, all right?’ he deadpans as ‘DO SOMETHING THAT TRENDS’ flashes across the screen in time with his voice.

‘Seriously, y’all just sitting around,’ he continues as his children start to protest.

‘No! No! No! who said that, did your mother say that?!’ replies the Aladdin star, barely holding back a laugh.

‘You have to do something that trends. Go jump off the—’ he starts as his kids try to talk over him.

‘You know what, that’s it,’ he says before jokingly storming off.

The video was a sequel of sorts to another one Will posted from the deck of the ship on Tuesday that featured the entire family, including Jada.

The Ali star gave a rundown of the vacationers, including Jada and his son Trey Smith.

‘Everybody’s here on vacation, I just spanked Trey on chess, Jada just got her hair greased,’ he said, before cutting away to a close-up of Willow tending to her mother’s blond braids.

‘Ah, you’re putting grease in grease,’ he joked, as his wife shoved the camera out of her face.

‘And Jaden had a show in Miami, so he just showed up for vacation, but bam! When he shows up, he comes through!’

He turned to the rapper and singer, who was dressed in a blue graphic T-shirt reading ‘Beautiful Confusion’ and a pair of canary yellow sunglasses with tiny round lenses, all while sporting bright pink hair.

‘So what’s your vacation idea? What are you thinking right now?’

‘Vacation is on now, Jaden is here!’ he added at the end of the clip.

Later on Monday, Will took a break from his quest for social media stardom to post a photo of himself with Jaden and Trey that had been converted with the popular Faceapp to age all three men multiple decades. 

Will’s salt and pepper facial hair had turned completely white, whereas Jaden seemed to have rocketed into his 70s.
