Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Will Smith writes fan letter to actor Will Smith
In a move that inversely mirrors Mac’s fan mail to Chase Utley on "Always Sunny," Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Will Smith has penned a fabulous fan letter to actor and Philly native Will Smith.
In a move that inversely mirrors Mac's fan mail to Chase Utley on Always Sunny, Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Will Smith has penned a fabulous fan letter to actor and Philly native Will Smith.
"We both like to get jiggy with it," Smith writes to his Hollywood counterpart. "We both have short, dorky sidekicks. You have Carlton, I have Tyler Thornburg."
And lest you think he isn't serious, the guy even threw together a video of the letter's making.
The goal, of course, is for the two to establish a Step Brothers-style friendship — one that cannot be broken by ordinary means, and is no doubt strengthened by the pair sharing a name. To show that he's serious, Smith writes that he will "strike out so many batters" should the Fresh Prince show up to a game.
Fans of Smith (the baseball one) will recall that, despite its brilliance, this is not the first time baseball's Will Smith has trolled Hollywood's Will Smith. Last season, in fact, Smith and the other Brewers made an over-the-top campy video to pay tribute to the actor:
Check out the full letter below:
Dear Will Smith,
It's me, Will Smith, but you can call me Will. How are you? I am well. Did you get my first three letters? I think the post office might be losing them because I haven't heard back. I know you're busy making movies, but I would really like to meet you. I'm a big fan and not just because we have the same name. Did you know that we have the same name?
How are Jaden and Willow? Kids grow up so fast, don't they? When we meet in person, I think we'll have a lot to talk about and we might even become best friends. Besides having the same name, here's some other things we have in common:
We're both tall (although I'm taller)
We both like to get jiggy with it
We both look great in black suits
We both like Tommy Lee Jones… although now that I think about it, everyone loves Tommy Lee Jones
You were in "Wild Wild West"; I own a cowboy hat
We both have short, dorky sidekicks. You have Carlton; I have Tyler Thornburg
These are just a few of the many things we have in common. Maybe after you get done filming "Bad Boys 3," you can come to one of my baseball games. I promise if you come to the game, I will strike out so many batters for you. Please come to Milwaukee whenever you want. Ed Sedar even said he'll pay for your trip. I can't wait to meet you and become BFFs.
The Other Will Smith
P.S. Is it cool if I tell people we hang out all the time? If not, I'll stop.
P.P.S. I have a giant poster of you from "Independence Day" hanging in my locker. I don't care if Jim Henderson makes fun of me. I'm not taking it down.
