This is a distinct improvement on George Osborne skipping, isn’t it? Earlier today, the actor Will Smith visited a Brixton school and led the pupils in a rousing rendition of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme tune.
He posted a video on his Facebook page here, noting: “I want to send a shout out to all my peeps in Brixton… Chuka Umunna, Tessa Jowell, headteacher Lesley Morrison and everybody at the St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls!”
Below is the theme tune singalong.
Full marks here go to Labour’s business spokesman Chuka Umunna, who managed to bop along without looking utterly excruciating. Tessa Jowell was also on the visit (see below) but alas, does not seem to feature in this particular clip.

One question remains: how are these children old enough to remember the Fresh Prince?
