The nostalgia of 20 years ago has a strong hold on the game.
Will Smith stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week and, to set the mood for his next warm-weather blockbuster, Focus, he spit a live version of "Summertime," his Grammy Award-winning hit with DJ Jazzy Jeff.
The crowd knew the words to the 1991 tune, of course. And that he delivered the performance wasn't much of a surprise –– he gave a rendition of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song when he visited Ellen recently, and "Gettin' Jiggy With It" during a talk on the Late Show With David Letterman last week.
But when Jazzy Jeff unexpectedly called in via Kimmel's new video-chat segment, Wall of America, it got, as Smith said, "awkward."
"I was going to call you after the show, man," he joked.
Focus, co-starring Smith and Aussie actress Margot Robbie, is in theaters Friday (Feb. 27).
