AI Will Smith Eating Spaghetti refers to a viral video created with ModelScope text2video depicting actor Will Smith eating spaghetti. The video spread on social media for its comical inability to accurately render Will Smith and the act of eating spaghetti, making for several clips of a disproportioned Smith stuffing wads of spaghetti into his mouth with his hands. In February 2024, Will Smith recreated the video as a joke.


On March 23rd, 2023, Reddit[1] user /u/chaindrop posted an AI-generated video based on the prompt "Will Smith eating spaghetti" to /r/stablediffusion. The clip gained over 6,500 points in one week.
