If the lyrics "In West Philadelphia, born and raised . . ." will forever be ingrained in your memory (we bet you're singing the rest of the song out loud right now), you seriously need to Google search "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" right now! Nineties kids and even Gen Zers who were lucky enough to catch the show on Nick at Nite (or watch reruns) are taking to social media to share (and obsess over) this Fresh Prince trick they found on Google.

Essentially, when you Google the show's title, a little license plate pops up in the corner that, when clicked, will full-blown stick you into a time capsule back to the '90s — seriously, I thought I had dial-up internet again! The page transforms to a more old-school look that features audio clips from the show, an animated feature of Carlton's dance moves, a Bel-Air weather forecast from Hilary, and so much more that you don't want to miss out on. But the best part might just be when you hit the back button! Give it a try for yourself by following these steps:

How to Do The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Google Trick

  • Click on the "CALIFORNIA FRESH" license plate on the left side (or at the top on a mobile phone)
  • Transport back to the '90s via the iconic yellow taxi and explore the page
  • Click the back button when you're done (trust us, you don't want to skip this step)
