Alfonso Ribeiro of ‘Fresh Prince’ fame leads ‘Carlton Dance’ flash mob

Wondering what Alfonso Ribeiro, of “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” fame was up to this weekend? Oh, he was just leading a “Carlton Dance” flash mob in L.A. No big deal.

With a large group of enthusiastic dancers behind him, Ribeiro swung his hips and arms to Tom Jones’s “It’s Not Unusual,” like he did on the ’90s sitcom. The group also executed their choreographed moves to the Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache” and LMFAO's “Party Rock Anthem.”

The event was organized by fitness company ViSalus to promote the Body by Vi Challenge. The flash mob was simultaneously held in “hundreds” of other cities in the U.S. and Canada, according to the company.

Yes, the corporate aspect of the flash mob sort of sucks some of the fun out of it. But you can’t really complain too much because — come on — you want to see Ribeiro do the “Carlton Dance” again.
