We’ve Found Will Smith’s Weakness! Watch The Fresh Prince Be Bad At Soccer!

We love watching Will Smith do fun Will Smith things, but it turns out we also like to watch him be bad at soccer.

Yesterday we celebrated Will Smith and his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion on The Graham Norton Show, so it's only fair to share this video of him absolutely failing at soccer. His son Jaden takes a crack at it too, and although he doesn't score, he clearly shows up his old man. The announcer even calls out Will, saying his kick was worse than Diana Ross's attempt. Sick burn.

Seven Super-Geeky Parodies of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme Song

It's said that 4chan, for all its horrors, is the Internet's secret creative nerve center. 4chanarchive recently posted an epic thread from earlier this month that would seem to back that up: "Variations of Bel-Aire," a machine-gun fire of parodies of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. You can see the full thread here. (Warning: link NSFW.) 4chan being 4chan, a few are offensive, a few are less than inspired, and almost all are probably copypasta.  (It should be noted that when the Balloon Boy drama unfolded last October, there was a Fresh Prince parody within hours.) But a lot are great -- and geeky. Taken together, they show the creative power harnessed by anonymous thousands with beastly levels of pop culture knowledge. After the jump, seven of the geekiest Fresh Prince theme parodies, including Lord of the Rings, Pokémon, and Star Trek:
