The only thing more amazing than the iconic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opening is Jimmy Fallon’s recreation, “The Fresh Host of Tonight.” It is almost exactly like Will Smith’s version — but dare we say, even better?
The host brought his Tonight Show crew out to Los Angeles (but don’t get too excited, West Coasters; we’re stealing our Jimmy back) and celebrated their arrival in style. Any Fresh Prince fan or living human can appreciate Jimmy’s recreation. Here’s why:
He sits on the same throne (with a few Tonight Show tweaks).
This very familiar spray paint deodorant move.
The not-so-ordinary playground to spend most of your days (hi, Questlove).
Carlton doing the Carlton. STOP IT RIGHT NOW.
That “smell ya later, New York City!” face. (Please note those studs.)
The skip that’s perfectly on cue.
The Fresh Prince’s arrival, ending head roll and all.
Watch the original for proof of this perfection.
