Will Smith ensured a teen undergoing chemotherapy treatments would have an incredible Christmas in the season two premiere of his snapchat series Will From Home.

The 52-year-old actor was joined by his friend Jason Derulo, 31, to lighten up the mood of Aiden, a 14-year-old who was diagnosed with cancer in April.

While chatting virtually with him and his father Chuck, Will and Jason put on a dancing tutorial, before revealing a special Christmas present for Aiden.

Aiden has had to undergo chemotherapy treatments throughout much of the pandemic, but his father isn’t able to be by his side during the treatments due to COVID-19 safety procedures.

However, he’s done his best to boost his son’s spirits by dancing for him from outside his room, according to TMZ

In a clip from the series, which can be watched on the Snapchat app, Aiden shows off some of the dance moves he has learned for Will and Jason, who burst out into laughter and cheers when he nails it.

It’s not all about who has the freshest moves, though, and Aiden is presented with a special Christmas gift from the Fresh Prince star.

He opens the box to discover that it’s a PlayStation 5.

The highly coveted game console has been hard to find for gamers across the country as Christmas approaches, but it wasn’t on the market yet when the clip was filmed.

‘That’s the PS5 — you can’t even get those yet!’ Will shouts with excitement.

On a screen behind him, Aiden raises the box above his head and lets out a roar.

Along with the gifts just for Aiden, Will also made a $10,000 donation to the Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas.
