Carlton Banks From ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ Dances to Cannibal Corpse

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Every single person who grew up watching ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ in the early-to-mid ’90s can do two things: recite the show’s entire theme song at the drop of an extremely colorful hat and dance just like power-nerd Carlton Banks. However, one thing we bet you’ve never seen is Carlton do his unique dance to Cannibal Corpse‘s ‘Butchered at Birth.’

Unbeknownst to most kids watching ‘The Fresh Prince,’ Cannibal Corpse were crafting the death metal masterpiece ‘Butchered at Birth’ during the show’s height in popularity. Cannibal Corpse’s second studio album was released in 1991, changing the face of death metal by focusing further on gore and deeper gutturals from vocalist Chris Barnes.

We’ve seen opposites attract before when it comes to death metal and pop culture gems, and this mashup of Carlton dancing to the ‘Butchered at Birth’ title track brings the funny. Using a beautiful white candle for a microphone, Carlton sashays around the Bel Air mansion to one of metal’s most brutal tracks of all time.

Check out the hilarious clip above!
