After the tremendous success of Black Panther‘s opening weekend, Will Smith took to Instagram to share an inspiring message he himself heard from Nelson Mandela along with a video of himself geeking out about Black Panther and praising everyone who worked on Marvel’s latest film.

“What you have done is spectacular,” Smith said in the video. “I watched the film a couple of days ago, and damn near got brought to tears. You guys have challenged and potentially even shattered a lot of long-time, long-held false Hollywood beliefs and paradigms. I just want to say congratulations to you, I’m proud and I’m excited, damn-near giddy. Congrats y’all, go get it.”
