Will Smith recently appeared on the Ellen Show, and he did an incredible throwback to when he was the Fresh Prince.

Earlier this year, the cast of the show had a reunion.

However the reunion was bittersweet, as Uncle Phil, played by the late James Avery, is absent. Still, it's nice to see the others together after all these years.

Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Will's cousin, Carlton Banks, uploaded a picture to Instagram alongside Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Will Smith (er, Will Smith), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Viv) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey).

The caption read: "Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete."

Avery had a big impact on the young cast on the show, so much so that Will Smith is actually slowly morphing into him.

Recently, the 48-year-old bungee jumped at Victoria Falls, something he's been meaning to do for 20 years or so, but it's a still image from his jump that caught people's eye.

At one point, when upside down, he looks the spitting image on Uncle Phil/James Avery.

Uploaded to Reddit, with someone coming up with the caption of: "This is story all about how, my face looks fat from upside down, I'd like to take a minute just sit right there, I look like uncle Phil as I fly through the air." The image has gone viral.

It's so hard to sum up just how perfect this is. I mean, is that a rainbow in the picture, too? This is everything.


Just brilliant.
