DJ Arcade Jump has mashed up "Get Lucky" and "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It." And it's really, really good.
This video serves two purposes: Firstly, it gives us a fresh take on a song that has become an overplayed nightmare. We can actually listen to "Get Lucky" again.
Secondly, and more importantly, it reminds us that Will Smith was a pretty successful rapper in 1998. This video summons a deluge of half-forgotten memories from 15 years ago, when Clinton was still defining the word "is" and Will Smith was penning parent-friendly radio jams like "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It."
What strikes me the most, though, is the fact I don't remember being surprised at the time that the Fresh Prince was dressed in a Pharaoh costume. That seems weird now. Why didn't that seem weird then?
Regardless, check out the video above. It's hilarious and strange and good. You can also download "Get Lucky Wit It" at Arcade Jump's SoundCloud.
