Did you guys know that Will Smith isn’t just the guy who’s gonna play Deadshot in this summer’s Suicide Squad movie? Nor is he just the dude who was in Concussion and Focus in recent years. He’s actually—get ready for it—been one of the biggest stars in the world for going on 20 years.
As though I needed to tell you any of that, of course. The entertainment draw of Smith has been well documented with only a few minor missteps along the way. Who better, then, to receive the Generation Award at this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards? He’s legitimately been the star of a generation. But, being the MTV Movie Awards, they didn’t just offer a series of clips or footage to mark his longevity; they got comedy musicians The Lonely Island to perform snippets of songs he sang.
