The first episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air aired twenty-eight years ago on September 10th, 1990. Although Will Smith was the star of the sitcom, one of the other main characters was Carlton Banks, played by Alfonso Ribeiro. Over Labor Day weekend, an unexpected reunion occurred when Will and Alfonso played golf together. Will even shared a photo of him and Alfonso on his official Instagram account (@willsmith). It seems that Will Smith is also involved in Jordan Brand’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. He recently posted a parody unboxing video of the Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince,” and also unveiled an exclusive Friends and Family variation.
The Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince”
The Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince” was first unveiled back in August, but it is not the first the first Air Jordan 5 colorway to be inspired by the 1990s sitcom. Back in 2013, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 5 “Bel-Air,” which made its retail debut on October 5th that year at a price of $185. Even the laceless Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince” is inspired by the Air Jordan 5 “Grape” that Will Smith could be seen wearing without laces during the sitcom’s opening credits. This iteration is dressed up in a Black, Grape Ice, New Emerald and White color scheme and features Fresh Prince-inspired accents.
Will Smith’s Parody Unboxing Video
Apparently, Will Smith has teamed up with Jordan Brand for the marketing of the upcoming Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince.” As a hilarious nod to and parody of all those who unbox sneakers on YouTube, Will Smith created a “@philasneakerguy68” Instagram account and posted a humorous, low quality unboxing video on his YouTube account. @philasneakerguy68 is a parody of online sneaker leakers. In addition to unboxing the Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince” that is arriving this month, Will also unveiled a Gold-colored Friends and Family variation. This variation will not be joining its counterpart among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018, but there is the possibility of winning a pair.
As you may already know, the laceless Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince” is scheduled to make its retail debut on Will Smith’s 50th birthday, i.e. September 5th, 2018, at a price of $190. If you want to know how you could win a pair of the Friends and Family edition of the Air Jordan 5 “Fresh Prince,” you should watch Will Smith’s parody unboxing video.
