Will Smith is a double threat, being a Grammy award-winning rapper and an Oscar-nominated actor.

And now he can call himself a triple threat – because he’s now pretty much a retail employee of the month.

In the weirdest but best stunt we’ve seen in a while, the 49-year-old has hung up his mic and scripts to nab a job at Boots.

Well, if there’s anyone we’d want selling us our meal deals and paracetamol, it’s Big Willie.

The Ali actor pinned on a name badge and wore a short-sleeved shirt and tie to promote his son Jaden’s venture in the food and drink aisle of Boots in Westfield.

Jaden, 20, is hoping to make the world a better place with his bottled water company JUST, which has packaging that is 82% renewable.

The JUST bottles are also recyclable throughout the UK through kerbside and bring bank systems.

Will said of his son’s new brand: ‘While Jaden was surfing as a young kid, some plastic water bottles floated by him and he soon realised that they were dirtying our oceans and killing the environment.

‘He was immediately motivated to do something to save our planet; our future – and with that wish, JUST Water was born.’

JUST has partnered with Boots to roll out the ethical bottled spring water in the UK, making Will’s new job make a lot more sense.

Jaden said: ‘By partnering with a retailer like Boots, it’s exciting that so many people across the UK can feel like they are giving back to the environment by drinking JUST.

‘Boots shares the same values as JUST through its social responsibility and dedication to sustainability and I’m excited to work with them for the UK launch.’

If you missed Will’s stint as a customer assistant in White City, London, you can keep up with his antics on social media.

The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air star is one of the best celebs on Instagram – even taking part in the In My Feelings challenge with one of the most dangerous attempts.
