VIDEO: Will Smith’s “Fresh Prince” Theme Song Live on Graham Norton Kinda Made My Day

You know how some websites post cat videos every day to soothe the restless or disillusioned souls of its readership? This video from last week of Will Smith and the audience of the mega-gay Graham Norton Show singing the “Fresh Prince” theme song is basically my version of a cat video. It’s even better than a cat video because I’m allergic to cats, but I’m sure as hell not allergic to the ’90s.

I’d complain about this song being stuck in my head now indefinitely but I won’t, because at least “It’s All Coming Back To Me” has finally been outsed from the endless rotation it’s been consuming since last week’s penultimate episode of Glee.

  1. Yes that was way too awesome! I actually haven’t seen an episode of “Fresh Prince” in years but that seriously made me want to do a nick at night marathon. Do they still show that show? Because I know they were on that whole 90s kick before I got rid of my cable.

  2. I’ve actually heard of someone who misheard the lyrics and always thought it was “chewing some meatballs outside of the school” and for the rest of my life I’d like to pretend that this person was right!

  3. I remember watching Fresh Prince after school in elementary school. When the theme song came on, I would run around the house, “rapping” the lyrics at the top of my lungs. I was like the Paul Revere of my suburb, warning all those who could hear of the greatness that was about to grace their tvs.
