Free Beer & Hot Wings: Carlton Does The Carlton on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ [Video]
Anyone who was a child of the '90s at some point probably watched the NBC television show "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
You may remember the show: Will (played by Will Smith) was sent to Los Angeles' affluent Bel Air neighborhood from west Philadelphia to live with his rich aunt and uncle and their children. Cultures clashing! Imagine the hijinx!
Alfonso Ribeiro played Carlton, Will's cousin. Carlton was a preppy nerd and was, perhaps, best known for his dance moves, which have simply become known as The Carlton.
Well, we haven't heard much from Ribeiro in recent years, until he surfaced on this season of ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" with dance partner Witney Carson.
And lo and behold, after a heartfelt message about how he was typecast as Carlton even after the show ended, Carlton, err, Alfonso dusted off the decades-old dance and reintroduced it to the masses. Well done, Carlton, err, Alfonso.
