Will Smith took both colonoscopy and vlogging to the next level!
The "Men in Black" star shared on his Instagram a part of his routine whenever he gets a colonoscopy examination and used the clip to cross-promote his Instagram page with nearly 40 million followers.
The 51-year-old actor captioned the post, telling his supporters that he underwent a colonoscopy to show his butt in the hopes of garnering 10 million more followers to reach the 50-million mark.
Smith started doing colonoscopy regularly at a medical facility in South Florida since he turned 50 in Sept. 2017 as advised by his doctor, Dr. Ala Stanford.

In the video, the actor can be heard narrating everything that he saw inside the facility.
"These are my little no-slip socks, that's my gown, it opens in the back. My a** is gonna be out so they can get to it easy," Smith recited. He focused his phone on his butt and fortunately blurred his behind for "privacy" purposes.
Vlogging For Healthier Living
After visiting the facility, he posted a vlog that expounded on health topics.
Smith told his subscribers to get "their health right" even if it will involve a full amount of commitment and humiliation.
In the same vlog, his attending physicians were seen taking him inside the facility's suite to undergo the procedure. Right after the examination, his doctors confirmed that everything went well and no complications took place.
After hours of being asleep, Smith teasingly called his physician "Martin Scorsese of my a**" and thanked him for the successful procedure.
As soon as he woke up from the anesthesia, a nurse checked him and asked if he did alright, to which Smith cheekily responds: "The question is, did you guys do alright?"
They did well. However, Smith received a call from his attending physician a few days after and revealed that there was a polyp that they successfully removed from his colon. The said small growth was a tubular adenoma, a pre-cancerous polyp and Smith was able to avoid potential harm.
Smith learned that 95 percent of colon cancers originate from the same type of polyp they removed from his colon. He reflected a bit afterward then reminded everyone that "Health is wealth."
