If Will Smith Singing The "Fresh Prince" Theme On British Television Doesn't Make You Simultaneously Laugh And Cry, We Can't Talk Anymore. Ever

(go to the 1:50 mark)

I'm just sitting here with tears in my eyes and the weirdest erection ever after watching that. It's like I hopped in a time machine and went back to being a 12 year old with a box-bag of Chips-Ahoy, some Hawaiian Punch and my personal laugh track on a hundred, thousand, trillion.

I'll take an outlandish stab and say that the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song was one the most important historical moments in race relations. EVERYONE knows the words of that song. White, black, hispanic, maybe asian, some indian, and zero eskimoes know every single word and voice inflection of this song. Did you see when they panned through the crowd? It was like the melting pot we all read about in Social Studies class in 5th grade was finally revealing itself. This may be the greatest Friday ever.

PS. Only Will Smith can kinda forget the words to the song that made him famous and still come out like the brother/cousin/best friend/uncle I never had.
