Jimmy Fallon brings 'Tonight Show' to LA, 'Fresh Prince'-style

Kicking off a week-long run of "The Tonight Show" in Los Angeles, Jimmy Fallon and company brilliantly re-create the theme song from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Bonus: Carlton dance.

Now, this is the story all about how Jimmy Fallon got flipped-turned upside down. And he'd like to take a minute, if that's OK, and tell you how he brought "The Tonight Show" back out to LA.

Jimmy Fallon kicked off the show's week-long stint in Los Angeles on Monday with an incredible adaptation of the opening theme song from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

Fallon and company re-created every scene in the "Fresh Prince" theme song, from Fallon doing graffiti on a wall, to the basketball game where a couple of guys are up to no good, to an auntie figure sending the crew off to LA. A few original cast members from "Fresh Prince" appear throughout the video, including DJ Jazzy Jeff picking Fallon up in the cab to head out to LA and Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro) doing his customary Carlton dance.

The result is a perfect tribute to one of my favorite TV shows growing up. Check out the video for yourself at the top of this post, and just you try to resist getting up and doing the Carlton dance along with Fallon and Ribeiro.
