Everyone's on the hunt for a bit of comfort these days, and nostalgia may just be the best way to people's hearts — at least if Will Smith has anything to do with it. The actor is celebrating the 30th anniversary of his iconic series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and he's doing it with rental site Airbnb. As part of the mansion's newfound place on the site, you can watch Smith give a tour of the iconic Fresh Prince mansion.
The video, which was uploaded to Smith's YouTube channel, features he and co-star DJ Jazzy Jeff going through the ultra-recognizable mansion and exploring all of the new features that will be part of a lucky few's Airbnb stay.
In the video, fans get a glimpse of what was designed to look like Smith's old bedroom in the pool house, but it's gotten some upgrades like a graffiti wall with a basketball hoop, a bar area that's been converted into a boombox space complete with Smith and Jazzy Jeff's old records, and a closet full of early '90s Fresh Prince-inspired clothes from a new anniversary collection. Oh, and there's also the totally chill and no big deal original Air Jordans on display. It's enough to prompt to Smith to exclaim, "Alright, I'll stay. I know it's supposed to be for other people, but I need this for myself."
Perhaps the best part, though, comes near the end when nearly all of Smith's former cast mates appear for their own tour of the mansion with actor Jospeh Marcell who played Jeffrey even joking that he's available to be the butler.
If you want to see Will Smith (and the rest of the Fresh Prince) cast give a tour of mansion, you can check out his YouTube video below, and if you live in Los Angeles and want to rent the place (sorry, folks, it's an LA-based only rental), you can try your hand at a reservation beginning Sep. 29 at 11 am PT on Airbnb.
