The Utah House of Representatives hopes to educate the public by creating a rap video to the tune of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme.

In what could be one of the most bizarre things to happen in the current political climate in the United States, the local representatives of Utah launched "Fresh Prints of Bills Here," a rap song about how laws are made on Thursday, March 1.

The project involves representatives Greg Hughes, Michael Kennedy, Francis Gibson, Kim Coleman, Mike Winder, Christine Watkins, Norman Thurston, Travis Seegmiller, Michael Noel, Mike McKell, James Dunnigan, John Westwood, Tim Quinn, Jefferson Moss, Marc Roberts, Brad Wilson, Susan Duckworth, Val Peterson, John Knotwell, and Chief of Staff Greg Hartley.

The video was very goofy. Some representatives even channeled their inner rapper and dressed up in snapbacks for the video. Albeit off-key, most of them enthusiastically spat out the verses assigned to them.

The video even used the ever-so-professional Comic Sans to display the rap song's lyrics onscreen.

Internet Reacts

The video caused quite a stir, and it received a mixed reception from the social media crowd.

The Salt Lake Health official page went on to react to the video with a GIF from The Office and a candid comment.

Some Twitter users admit that the video was so badly done that it is entertaining.

'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Reboot

Utah's "Fresh Prints Of Bills Here" coincidentally comes at a time when the classic sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is being considered for a reboot. According to multiple reports, the company who owns the rights to the '90s comedy series has been filing trademarks for "Fresh Princess" for everything — from TV shows to backpacks and clothing.

The series starred Will Smith as a poor young man sent to live with his uncle and aunt in the Bel-Air mansion.

There has been a renewed interest in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air recently. NBC's Saturday Night Live created a skit about the sitcom in January with Chris Redd as Smith's character.

The Bright actor also posted an art of his Fresh Prince character that made fans hope that a cartoon version is in the works.

Smith, in a previous interview, said that he would love to be involved in a reboot, but he might have to play the role of Uncle Phil on the new show.
