Knowing full well that NO ONE is talking about Men in Black III, other than to say, “There’s no way we’re seeing that piece of sh*t Men in Black III,” pimp-slap extraordinaire Will Smith went on the BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show” to play the nostalgia card: he rapped the entirety* of the theme to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

(*I know it’s not the full song — there are four verses that are only heard in a few early episodes and later on Will Smith’s Greatest Hits — but something something magic xylophone.)

There are some pretty good audience reaction shots in the video, but this is my favorite:

They really relate to the song’s lyrics about chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool and all in West Philly.
