Who knew that when “Downton Abbey” met “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” the end result would be so amazing? It may have taken two seasons, but “Downton Abbey” has finally permeated mainstream pop culture, and thanks to College Humor, we know have “The Fresh Prince of Downton Abbey.”
We all know Will Smith’s infamous theme “Fresh Prince” song, but what do you think about the Victorian era version?
“Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upstairs down, so if you’ll come around for tea and just sit right there, I’ll tell you all about how I became Lord Grantham’s heir.”
This isn’t the first “Downton Abbey” rap to hit the web. In fact, do we sense a new Internet meme on the horizon?
Last week, rapper Adam WarRock released “Downton,” which includes a sample from Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz’s “Deja Vu (Uptown Baby),” and it had one catchy chorus.
“If you’re from where I’m from then you call it Downton/In the house like Lord Grantham/That’s the damn anthem/Live the high life in the abbey we run/And we sip Earl Grey when the day is done.”
“Downton Abbey” is currently filming Season 3 in the UK. Joining the British drama for the third season is Academy Award-winning actress Shirley MacLaine.
Take a listen to the track above. Can you get down with “The Fresh Prince of Downton Abbey?”
