If you’re in or around your early thirties, you’ll have fond memories of Will Smith’s hit TV series, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. There’s no mistaking those opening lines, “Now this is a story all about how my life got twisted and turned upside down.”
Everyone new the words to that song. Seriously, it was probably the most watched and loved series that ever played in the Founders House rec room. And when I say “most watched,” it obviously comes a more genuine close second to the bizarre relentless obsession that private schooled boarders have always had with The Bold and The Beautiful.
“Come on, Ridge, nail her!” the boys would scream in unison, followed by genuinely concerned and in-depth discussions at dinner including, “what the fuck is Brooke’s problem?”
Not that we should forget the purpose of this article.
Will Smith as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
So you know those weird religious channels which feature a guy on the screen gaaning aan about all things bright and beautiful and taking calls from people who have either been saved or need saving? Ja, those guys.
Well anyway, this one guy got completely nailed on live TV (“TalkGod TV” to be precise) as he started reading someone’s sob story – which turned out to be an exerpt from the intro theme song that plays on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Spotted in The Sun.
A CLIP of a TV show where the presenter is tricked into reading the lyrics to the theme tune of comedy The Fresh Prince of Bel Air has become an internet hit. Nearly half a million people have watched the hilarious one minute prank on YouTube where the unassuming host is taking messages from viewers on digital channel TALKGod TV.
He reads out emails and messages from people explaining how God has affected their lives. But the hapless presenter gets caught out when he recites one email which includes the lyrics to the tune of the hit US comedy which launched superstar actor Will Smith in the early 90s. He explains: “Someone has written a story here. It’s a long one. ‘I am a born-again Christian and I would like to share my story of salvation with you’.
He continues: “I was born in West Philadelphia and also raised there. I spend most of my days playing basketball in the playground but also chilling out and relaxing. “But then one day a couple of guys who were up to no good, starting making trouble in my living area.” The prankster even subltlely changes the lyrics so he doesn’t get caught out, but the penny drops for the producers off camera when the email talks about moving to the posh suburb of Bel Air, where the show is set. The presenter stumbles and says: “Err okay” after cracking a nervous smile and quickly switches to another message.
It’s too funny.
