Will Smith's Reaction To Philly's Fresh Prince Mural Will Make You #Emosh

In West Philadelphia, born and raised...

What Will Smith did for West Philadelphia in his Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air theme tune was more than just create a #bop. 

We all love to have a jig as soon as it begins. The song's such a hit, it's even played in nightclubs.

What the citizens of West Philadelphia (where he was, you know, born and raised) want us to know is that Will Smith himself has made a huge impact on the perception of their city. And to show their appreciation, they created this incredible mural in his honour. 

If the mural itself isn’t enough to drive you to tears, Will Smith’s reaction will.

Speaking to Philly.com, he said: “The idea that there would be a mural of me on the side of a school in West Philadelphia just wrecked me. To see my mother’s face when she looked at the mural, that was profoundly moving for me.”


Is the pollen count particularly strong today? Or are we actually just weeping? 

And if your heart is stone and this story is STILL yet to touch you to your core, wait until you see what his Mum had to say. 

Oh yes, they went there. 

Telling of her pride, she called the art piece simply "perfect."  

If that’s not made your day, we’re done here.
