Here’s a dancing flashmob lead by Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air

This dancing flashmob in Hollywood helped break the record for "World's Largest Simultaneous Flashmob," which is definitely a thing, as part of a campaign for the "Body by Vi Challenge," sponsored by ViSalus, which… does something with obesity, I guess? I don't know, I went to their website and it sounded like a cult but also like a fake company, like Sunstream on 30 Rock. Anyway, let's not bother with the question of whether or not ViSalus is real, or a cult, or just another fitness trend. Because the really important thing is that this flashmob was led by Alfonso Ribeiro, better known as Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

And yes, they do both Carlton dances:

Real talk: that flashmob su-hu-hu-hucked. Isn't the point of these things to be really in sync? Don't get me wrong, Ribeiro had his moves down, but could they not even put the best dancers up in front? White-shirt guy has no idea what's going on! Could they not get people to form at least a vague shape? I don't need a perfect circle, I'll take a sloppy ellipse. This group looks more like a pork chop. (And I bet pork chops are not allowed in the "Body by Vi Challenge.") Finally, you should not allow children to dance to LMFAO's "I'm Sexy And I Know It;" I feel like that's Parenting 101.

But hey, lookin' good, Carlton! Hope you're enjoying those sweet, sweet royalty checks.
