Will Smith and son Jaden Smith appeared on The Graham Norton Show in the UK on Friday to promote their new movie “After Earth” and surprised the entire audience with a live ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ reunion.
When Will appeared on the show last year, the audience was thrilled to hear him perform the theme song on the show so it was only expected that he would take things up a notch during his next visit.
So how could he possible top performing the famous “Fresh Prince” theme song? Bring along pals DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribiero and have everyone break out in the Carlton dance.
The sudden guest appearances were completely unexpected as Will and Jaden started the show by themselves sitting on the couch.
When the host asked the father-son duo if they ever worked together before, they playfully pretended like they never did such a thing and would hardly consider doing it again.
Next it came time for both of the rappers to give a little performance and once Will began beat boxing, Jaden jumped in with a rap to introduce himself.
It wasn’t long before the crowd was completely hyped up and Will found it to be the perfect opportunity to bring out his surprise.
He quickly introduced DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jeff Townes) who looked incredibly different since his “Fresh Prince” days before giving Alfonso the word.
The crowd erupted in cheers as the Carlton actor came out unto the stage and broke into that famous Carlton jig that we just can’t get enough of.
The crew also broke into the hilarious hip twirling dance that they did back in the 90s before they began filming each show.
The promotion trail didn’t stop there, however; after the show Will and Alfonso took to Boujis to watch Will’s oldest son Trey DJ that night.
The Fresh Prince trio all stepped out together and Alfonso brought along his second wife Angela Unkrich.
While both Will and Alfonso looked dapper in some tailored suits, Jazzy Jeff opted for a plain tracksuit which only emphasized just how much weight he had gained since the show.
The promotion trail continued as Jaden and his father then headed over to surprise a group of youngsters who were all involved in the Boris Johnson’s Leadership Club program.
While the 10-14 year olds were excited to see the “I Am Legend” actor, they didn’t really break out into full fan screeches until Will’s son hit the stage rapping.
The young group couldn’t contain their excitement as the young actor and part-time rapper did his thing.
After the fun performance both son and father offered words of wisdom and encouragement to the group and Will even thanked them for all their hard work.
“I think it’s hugely important to take these moments,” the 44-year-old actor said. “I want to thank you all for being an example for your fellow citizens so I congratulate you on that.”
The icing on top of the touching moment was to then have the Mayor of London Boris Johnson inform the rapping-acting duo that he has some musical talents as well.
He told the pair that he had written a rap song for the Queen’s jubilee.
“My first rap, I haven’t really set it to music yet,” Boris said playfully. “Perhaps with your help. I can send you a lyric. It was about the Queen’s Silver Jubilee.”
Being the witty comedian he is, Will jokingly responded by saying, “That was big in the hip hop community.”
While are aren’t too sure about the plot of the movie, we might pay to go see it just to get a taste of Will and Jaden’s on screen chemistry. Next time they should really consider doing a comedy flick together.
