Someone has created a seriously emotional mash-up of ‘Twin Peaks’ and ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’

"Geeez this is hilarious and heart breaking."

A Fresh Prince of Bel Air fan has created a mash-up that sees the show combining with Twin Peaks for a seriously emotional result.

The video features the iconic scene from Fresh Prince episode Papa’s Got a Brand New Excuse which sees Will deliver a powerful monologue on the failings of his absent father.

It’s an emotional watch at the best of the times, but the potential for tears is raised tenfold in this mash-up. As the monologue plays out, Angelo Badalamenti’s emotional ‘Laura Palmer’s Theme’ is heard in the background.


Although the theme features in some of the most sinister moments of Twin Peaks, it makes Fresh Prince unexpectedly look like an Oscar-winning family drama. You can watch it in full here.

One Reddit user commented: “Geeez this is hilarious and heart breaking at the same time. I’m so conflicted and confused. Typical David Lynch stuff.”

“This was amazing! Perfect timing with the camera angles. The shot of the sculpture at the end looked so sinister with Laura’s theme,” said another.

In other Fresh Prince news, it was reported last year that Alfonso Ribeiro is suing Fornite for allegedly stealing his iconic Carlton dance.


Alfonso’s attorney David Hecht spoke to TMZ, saying: “It is widely recognized that Mr. Ribeiro’s likeness and intellectual property have been misappropriated by Epic Games in the most popular video game currently in the world, Fortnite.”
