Will Smith's meeting with Michael Jackson

The actor was at an award show when he realised that the time was slipping away and he still did not get the chance to meet his idol, Michael Jackson. When the moment came to meet the legendary artist, Will was shoved by his security in a utility closet due to a security alert at the award show. In the closet when Will was trying to figure out the situation, a small 'Hey' was heard from behind the closet that startled the actor. 

Hilariously narrating the story, Smith continued saying that he could not believe that he was with Micheal Jackson in a utility closet. The singer started asking Will about comic books which Will Smith had to lie about knowing. The duo chatted for a few minutes when suddenly Smith was again shoved by Michael's security. Will Smith recalled Micheal waving him a small bye while leaving. The actor thanked Suge Knight for making that meeting possible.
