It's pretty much assumed that if you were able to walk and talk in the early 90s then you automatically know the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

To celebrate his triumphant return to late night and the Los Angeles Universal stage, Jimmy Fallon managed to deliver what is likely one of the best Fresh Prince parodies of all time.

Fallon gives the backstory of how he and the Tonight Show crew made the decision to switch coasts—from New York to LA. Fortunately for us, he did this as a shot for shot remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and it was fantastic.

Now this is a story all about how/my life got flipped turned upside down/and I’d like to take a minute, if that’s okay / I’l tell you how I brought the Tonight Show back out to L.A.

He said it’s time to take the Tonight Show to Sunny LA!

Alfonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff were even on hand to provide a touch of authenticity to the sketch. 

Does late night television get any better than this?
