Video: Jimmy Fallon Recreates The ‘Fresh Prince’ Intro

posted by Oscar February 3, 2015

Well this is pretty stupid (see episode 1.1 for the reference)… On Monday night Jimmy Fallon paid homage to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with the start of The Tonight Show’s week-long residence in Los Angeles.

Fallon recreated the classic intro, marking the perfect parallel between how both lead “characters” are headed for sunny LA. Fallon’s remake even featured some cameos from stars of the show with Jazzy Jeff playing the cab driver and Alfonso Ribeiro doing “the Carlton.” Check that out above.

Video: Will and Jaden Smith Perform The Theme from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Admit it. You’ve always wanted to see this happen. Hell, even Yeezus wants the Fresh Prince come back out of Rap retirement! So, while on the promotional tour for his new film After Earth (featuring his son Jaden), Will Smith put together a mini Fresh Prince of Bel-AirĀ reunion at the Graham Norton Show. The man behind “Getting Jiggy Wit It” performed the show’s theme song with DJ Jazzy Jeff and son Jaden on hypeman duties. Then, Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton) came out to do his signature “Carlton Dance” along with the Smiths to the tune of Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual.”

If you grew watching the show, this was just plain great.
