Will Smith’s breakout role in the 90’s, this show made him into a house hold name all across the world. The show was the story about how his life got turned upside down, and then forces us to take a seat right here while he tells us about how he became the prince of Bel-Air. But the gist of it is he pretty much kicked some bullies butt and his mom freaked out and sent him to live up with his uncle.

2What was the name of the family that the Fresh Prince was staying with?

The show gave us a classic 90’s family that had a strong love for each other, their own problems, their own fights. But most importantly, they made a real, human family. Each character had something that every one of us could relate to. From Uncle Phil, to Carlton, to Ashley, each member had something that we could understand. What was the name of the family that Will’s mom sent him to?

3Where did Will move from?

Where was Will born and raised, before his life got turned upside down. Sit right there while you take a moment to think about it. It is literally in the theme song if you cannot get it.

I’m going to go see if I can find one of them fancy spinning chairs so long.

4In which movie did Will Smith play Detective Mike Lowrey?

Detective Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are two buddy cops on a mission to find the heroin that was stolen from inside their own police station. This is one of the best buddy cop movies ever made, and still has a cult following till this day. A sequel was made with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence reprising their roles as the bad cops, this time to put a stop to the ecstasy trade market in Miami. And blow stuff up.

5True or False: Mike and Marcus are brothers?

A big part of the Bad Boys movies are the relationship that Mike and Marcus share together. After all, being in so many gun fights, car chases and explosions, you can’t help but feel the love eventually. But it is soon revealed in the first movie that the two are actually brothers, and this happens to be the biggest plot twist in the film, as the two never knew this. It turns out that the hospital messed up and gave them to the wrong people.

6Which police department did Mike Lowery work for?

Set in a sunshiny city with exotic locals, the movies are full of beautiful woman, and even more beautiful cars.

So which police department do him and Marcus work for when tracking down crazy drug lords and looking for something to shoot?

7In which movie does Will Smith welcome an alien to Earf?

No, that is not a typo. That is exactly what he says. I have analysed, performed extensive video forensics, and harassed the director of the film in order to confirm this. During an invasion of Earf, Will Smith manages to finally take down one of the alien aircrafts, and comes face to face with a mini C’thulu. He punches it out, and then lights a cigar to celebrate his victory. It is a truly unique moment in film. Also flu saves the day.

8Who does Will Smith play in Independence Day?

If aliens do ever invade us, I believe that Will Smith will be the one to save us with some awesome fighter pilot skills. Just because of his performance in this movie. No alien scum is going to get close to taking over the Earf as long as Will Smith is alive and peeing while spying on his neighbours. None, and that is a fact. And it is almost guaranteed that Will Smith will be there to welcome them to planet Earf.

9On which day does Independence Day take place?

Independence Day is meant to be a realistic movie on what might happen if aliens invade, if they happen to invade on the actual Day of Independence. Which is a bad idea when you consider that it is a national holiday that brings everyone together. In fact, attacking on any national holiday just seems like a bad idea. Even more so, attacking anything on any day just sounds stupid, in my opinion. Can we not just get along? Come on guys.

10In which movie is Will Smith a member of a government agency that watches over aliens?

Apparently the world is full of alien immagrants, and the government is keeping that a secret from us. Because they are scared that there will be mass histaria from the general public.

Together, they are the best in the business. Also, Will has a pretty cute gun.

11What does Agent Jay have to do when humans see aliens?

The Men In Black cannot afford mass hysteria in the streets, so they have a way of preventing that. Whenever a normie like you or me sees something we are not supposed to, the MIB have a special weapon to use on the populace. It is quite a powerful and useful tool, and it is quite sad that this technology doesn't exist. I mean, we could enjoy our favorite movies or video games all over again, how sweet is that?

12Who never died and just went home according to K?

The Men in Black films have a massive amount of references to pop culture. To movie stars, famous singers, and even some video games.

Who is this rock and roll icon?
