The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air went from West Philadelphia to C-SPAN this week!
The political TV channel got a prank call from a man that claimed in a deadpan manner that he was in fact the guy who went to live with his "auntie and uncle in Bel-Air." The seemingly serious caller was put on the air to join a discussion about Congressional influence on Iranian negotiations and instead started reciting the iconic theme song to Will Smith's beloved sitcom, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
"Los Angeles, California, Republic line. Here is Jack. Go ahead," the broadcaster introduced the caller.
"Uh, good morning!" the male caller responded. "I'm Jack Strickland. I just wanted to make it clear that I am calling from Bel-Air, California, but I am originally from Philadelphia. Specifically, West Philadelphia."
