Taping “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” in Los Angeles this week, what better for Jimmy to set the stage than pay homage to “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” opening? That’s exactly what the late night host did, involving Alfonso Ribeiro (“Carlton Banks”) and DJ Jazzy Jeff (“Jazz”) from the hit, Emmy-nominated ’90s series.

The Roots also star in this recreation, with some nice lyrical reworkings by Jimmy. Note that he gives props to producer/”SNL” creator Lorne Michaels, where another media mogul, Quincy Jones, famously got theirs—in matching text, no less.

less than one day after a lip-sync battle between himself, Kevin Hart, and Will Ferrell.

How impressive is the shot-by-shot recreation of the NBC hit series?
