LOL Video: Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro Reunite for Fresh Prince Theme, Carlton's 'Unusual' Dance

Get More: Video

Now this is a story all about how… Will Smith revisited his Fresh Prince of Bel Air roots on The Graham Norton Show this week, bringing two special friends along for the ride down memory lane.

Appearing on the BBC talker with son Jaden to promote their father-son space movie After Earth, Smith grabbed a mic, introduced longtime collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff and launched into a sing-along-with-me reprise of the Fresh Prince theme. UPDATE: Apparently this was a follow-up to Smith’s year-ago appearance on Graham Norton (seen here).

Smith then segued (at the 3:45 mark) straight into Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual,” setting the stage for onetime cast mate Alfonso Ribeiro‘s cameo, doing a full-on, take-no-prisoners rendition of The Carlton, his Fresh Prince alter ego’s spastic dance perhaps only rivaled on TV by The Elaine.

  • It’s a follow up to the last time they were on the show… Will did the ‘Fresh Prince’ theme with Gary Barlow than.

    • I not only watched this one, but watched the one with Gary Barlow as well. Both were really fun to watch. Will Smith seems to enjoy entertaining a live audience.

    I love this! Bonus points for everyone who knows all the words (like me). I dare you NOT to smile.
    Have a wonderful, safe Memorial Day weekend. Take time to thank and remember, the men and women who served, and continue to serve in our Armed Forces. Blessings to all of them.

  • The thing that makes it even better is Heather Graham’s white girl dancing in the background.

  • Heather Graham looks like she has no idea what to do with herself.

  • Nice to see Graham Norton’s show get some publicity. His show is one of the funniest and most unpredictable talk shows on tv.

    • Totally agree. Never miss an episode. Even if I’m unfamiliar with the guests I’m still laughing. Check it out on BBC America Thursday nights and any re-runs you can catch. This episode with Will Smith will be on 5/30.

  • It should also be noted this will come on BBC America next week. We get Graham Norton a week later in the states. This entire episode was awesome.

  • It would have been more enjoyable without that pseudo-cool douche kid of his

  • This was so awesome!! Love the show. It brings back so many memories!! One thing tho. I thought a few years ago there was an interview with Alfonso Ribeiro where he said he would never do that dance again? Anyway it was still awesome!!
