Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon have been all over social media this week, in large part to Jimmy Fallon recreating The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opening intro to the show. Fallon and The Tonight Show are back in Los Angeles this week and to mark this special occasion, Fallon seems to be out doing himself has 2014’s Entertainer of the Year.
Watch Fallon change the lyrics, yet keep most of the video the same in this cold open.
Audiences were not surprised when the original Fresh Prince found his way to The Tonight Show for an interview and did another number with Fallon. Will Smith, current Hollywood superstar, has been so busy acting and shelling out movie after movie, that it was nice to see the rapper get back to his roots. Will Smith hasn’t released new music since 2005, so it was overdue.
It wasn’t an original song, but a serious 1988 throwback with Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock’s “It Takes Two.” Smith and Fallon used a beatbox iPad app that loops and layers vocal tracks with a little help from the Roots
Jimmy Fallon and Will Smith should hit the studio ASAP.
