If you were a child of the 1990s, there’s a good chance you were a devout viewer of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” the long-running NBC comedy that helped elevate Will Smith from rap artist to one of the most successful actors of his generation.
Well, the Pet Collective has tapped into our mutual love of “Big Willie” and dogs to bring viewers "The Fresh Pup of Bel-Air."
“Petodies based on current, modern songs have been hugely successful, so for Throwback Thursday we thought it would be fun to revisit one of our favorite sitcoms,” Tom Maynard, channel head of the Pet Collective, said.
The video reimagines the famous opening credits sequence of the show, this time showcasing a dog, “Will Sniff,” who is rescued from an animal shelter and taken in by none other than James Avery, the actor who portrayed Uncle Phil on the "Fresh Prince.”
“In a West County shelter born and raised, in a kennel is where I lived with most of the strays,” begins the video’s narration. “Panting, barking and slobbering drool, the kennels were small but the workers were cool. After a couple of tries, got adopted for good, said they’re gonna take me to the neighborhood.”
