TORONTO — A clip of Will Smith and his son Jaden performing the theme from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has been viewed nearly 10 million times since airing on British television Friday.
Will and Jaden were appearing on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show to promote their film After Earth when the host called on them to do a rap together. After doing a short rap, the duo introduced DJ Jazzy Jeff — who frequently appeared on Fresh Prince — and performed the sitcom’s familiar theme song.
Then, to the delight of the audience, 44-year-old Smith brought out Fresh Prince co-star Alfonso Ribiero, 41, to perform the famous “Carlton dance” to Tom Jones’ hit “It’s Not Unusual.”
Norton’s other guests, Bradley Cooper and Heather Graham, rose to their feet to dance along.
Smith previously performed the Fresh Prince theme on Norton’s show in July 2012 with Take That singer Gary Barlow and Jones at his side.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ran for six seasons beginning in 1990.
