Prince Plays New Song "Screwdriver" On 'Fallon'

Misheard 'Fresh Prince Of Bel Air' Theme Song Lyric Shuts Down Pennsylvania Schools

This is a story all about how parents just don’t understand. One student’s life got flipped, turned upside down, and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll [block quote] how he became the most famous high schooler living in the Wild, Wild West of the northeast, western Pennsylvania. Na na na na na na na.

A teen’s voicemail greeting trigged a lockdown at his Pennsylvania school after a receptionist misheard his rendition of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.

While trying to confirm an appointment with 19-year-old Travis Clawson the receptionist thought the message said “shooting people outside of the school.” The line is actually “shooting some b-ball,” a reference to basketball.

The receptionist called 911 and Economy police arrested Clawson a short time later at Ambridge Area High School, but released him once he explained the message. (Via)

That same receptionist also owns a bunker full of beans and water, for when this so-called “Will2K” happens.
