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

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.

      Just watched it because you said Gary’s in it – they make a good pair!! :D

      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.

    Reblogged this on Chronicles of a 40-something Nurse Wannabe and commented:
    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.

    That was fun.

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

  7. Evan says:

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

  8. JT says:

    That was great.

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

    • Deena says:

      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.

  13. Mick says:

    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.

  14. Emily says:

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

  15. Jlonnie says:

    Carlton is the only reason to watch this!

  16. Lorena says:

    Great times, good memories

  17. Fernanda says:

    a the fresh prince movie coming soon.. with Jayden??

  18. Jacob says:

    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!!

  19. the funny thing was heather talking about how good she is on roller blades and no one made a remark about boogie nights!!!
