One might make the argument that nostalgia is at its strongest. Between shows like Fuller House or the new Will and Grace, continuations or reinterpretations of old favorites have been very popular.

Morgan Cooper felt we could use another one and directed a trailer turning The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air into the highly dramatic Bel-Air.

And it looks pretty dope.


Bel-Air (2019) | Official Trailer (4K) www.youtube.com

The trailer takes the story of Will Smith getting in trouble on the streets Philadelphia and being forced to live with his uncle in Bel-Air and gives it the gravitas you might expect from a modern Oscar contender.

The trailer stars Jerry Madison Jr. as Will Smith turning the struggle of the lifestyle he's used to clashing with the lifestyle of his uncle and cousin.

And people are here for it!




The trailer has gotten so popular that it even reached the ears of Will Smith. Not Madison playing the character, I mean Will Smith-Will Smith.

He posted a video about it to his YouTube Channel.

Spoiler: He likes it.

Smith interviews Cooper about the trailer, asking,

"So, how did that idea come to you to do that?"

Cooper responded,

"Well, you know, I grew up watching the show."

Smith was impressed with the concept, remarking,

"The dramatic version of these ideas means that you can use existing storylines but, it's not going to seem like you're redoing an episode because the storyline is going to be brand-new from the dramatic perspective."

With Will Smith so onboard with this idea, it has people wondering if we could make this real.





At the moment, it's unclear what the future will bring for Cooper's reimagining. However it is very clear that he's a talented filmmaker with a bright future ahead.

Will Smith has three movies coming out this year. May sees the release of the highly anticipated, live action remake of Aladdin. September will bring wit it the animated spy comedy Spies in Disguise, and Gemini Man is to be released in October.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
