Will Smith is back in action as the Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

Well, sort of...

The 49-year-old actor joined The Ellen DeGeneres Show today where he informed the audience and viewers that he had finally decided to make an Instagram account. So, Ellen DeGeneres—being the proud social media expert that she is—decided to help him with how to properly use the platform. 

Her instructions included things like perfecting the "duck face," taking photos with babies (which didn't work out so well) and snapping pictures with food.

But no Instagram account would be complete without the always-popular Throwback Thursday post.

Meanwhile, the Fresh Prince isn't the only role Will has taken on these days.

His upcoming Netflix fantasy flick Bright comes out on Dec. 22, 2017, and has lots of people talking.

The film centers around Will who plays a Los Angeles Police Department officer who teams up with an orc cop (Joel Edgerton) in a world that's composed of both human and mythical creatures.
