Will Smith, The Tonight Show

If we had any doubts, consider them quelled—Will Smith knows how to make an entrance. 

The Oscar nominee made his return to The Tonight Show Thursday night to chat about his upcoming role in Suicide Squad, but before he could even sit down, the show had already begun. 

Ever the comedian, the actor insisted that the standard arrival guests make onto the sound stage wasn't enough for Jimmy Fallon's audience, so he tried it again—only this time, while rolling in a human hamster ball. Despite the raucous applause, it didn't reach the star's standards. 

"I just think they deserve a little more than that," Smith told Fallon of the audience. "I was your first guest ever on this show, man. I gotta give it to 'em."

So, Smith gave everyone a little boogie. The lights dimmed, the music blasted and Smith's bevy of disco dancers got into formation for a '70s themed bonanza. 

The pièce de résistance was Smith, of course, who performed a personal groove before taking a seat once again. 

Though we were sure he had exhausted all efforts, the actor had one more entrance up his sleeve—and it was grand with a capital G. First, a choir arrived to make the official announcement that Smith had arrived. Next, he rode onto the stage atop a unicorn. After walking the freshly laid red carpet, confetti poured out from the ceiling. 

It was the perfect reminder to book your unicorn for Saturday night.
