Kansas State Wildcats remake ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ (Video)


With the NCAA basketball season right around the corner, that also means Midnight Madness is nearly upon us.

The Madness has morphed into one of the most anticipated portions of the season and many teams go all out for the festivities, including the Kansas State Wildcats, who in an effort to bring awareness decided to remake the opening intro from the hit 1990′s television show, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.

Now, on the surface, you’d assume it would be some cheese-ball re-make, but the guys absolutely nailed it. I’m sure if they used a professional director, but from the scenes to the acting, it was a near flawless rendition of the original. They even busted out some brightly colored, neon clothing to give it that authentic look.

Will Smith would be proud.

Extra props to senior guard Shane Southwell (who played the role of Smith), who definitely has a career in acting if the whole basketball thing doesn’t work out for him.
