The day the Fresh Prince became Will Smith

It’s the 4th of July!

Just think, that on this day 16 years ago, a TV sitcom and small-time rapper named The Fresh Prince will graduate into a big mega Hollywood A-lister named Will Smith, whose mere name can guarantee big box office bucks for even crappy movies like Wild Wild West?

WOW! I was blown away by ID4 when I first saw it in 1996. The “rallying speech” by Bill Pullman might’ve sucked big time, but still, this movie had all the right ingredients going for it.

After all, it turned this guy:

Boom shake shake, shake the room!

Into this guy:

Welcome to Earf!

Congratulations, Will Smith! It was totally the right call for you to do Wild Wild West instead of The Matrix!

Here’s more Fresh Prince goodness!
