Will Smith has been the star of countless box office mega-hits, but his beginnings as Will on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are still fondly remembered by any true fan. So when Smith visited Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and the ever affable host suggested they perform a mash-up of history's all time great theme-songs, everyone knew what was probably coming...

After cycling through some great theme songs, Will Smith blasted the opening lines from Fresh Prince and the crowd went wild. The segment ended with Smith and Fallon dancing into the audience, high-fiving everyone in sight as the song concluded.

This isn't the first time Fallon and Smith have gone on a nostalgia deep-dive.

Back in February of 2014, Smith and Fallon gave us a tour of dancing's history that quickly went viral!

Will Smith seemed to be in a great mood from moment one, when he walked out wearing a body-cam.

Telling Fallon he'd gone "YouTube stupid," Smith then proceeded to record his interview from a drone-mounted camera.

The future is now!

Smith wasn't completely joking about his social media obsession! His Instagram and YouTube channels have been churning out quality laughs for quite a while.

That includes this post from Superbowl Sunday that went viral:

Smith hasn't been particularly shy about performing his most famous theme-song since he's become a superstar.

He's performed the iconic rap on Ellen with Ellen Degeneres, as well as on BBC's The Graham Norton Show alongside his son Jaden, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and the incredible Alfonso Ribeiro.

Smith had good reason to visit The Tonight Show!

Mr. July has several new projects that are set to hit theaters very soon. Notably, Smith will be playing the Genie in the upcoming live-action Aladdin reboot, as well as reprising the role of Daryl Ward in Bright 2.

If Will Smith ever gets tired of singing the 'Fresh Prince' theme song, he's not showing it!

That's good news, because his fans certainly haven't tired of hearing it. Hopefully, as Aladdin draws even closer, and promotional efforts increase, we'll get even more masterful mash-ups from Smith and Fallon!

Fingers crossed!
