This Will Make Your Day: Will Smith Raps Fresh Prince Song To Screaming High Schoolers

Will Smith surprised high school students at a school assembly in England when he busted out The Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song.

Let’s get some context up in here:

The actor was in England to take a tour of “real London,” which is what brought him to St Martin in Tulse Hill.

A spokesman for the Black Cultural Archives, who led Smith’s tour, said, “Many discussions took place, including questions around identity and belonging, young people and life chances. Will Smith was very interested in these discussions especially as this chimes with his support of the President of the United States, Barack Obama and his work with the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.” (ET Online.)

But let’s be real, the best part was when he started the song and everyone freaked out and joined in, despite the fact that the show has been over since 1996. 1996? OH MY GOD. Sadly though, they didn’t do the whole song, but it should be enough to make you smile.

The video of the song is below. You can watch the speech here.
