C-SPAN Gets a Prank Call from a Fresh Prince

C-SPAN got pranked.

The network's Washington Journal show was taking calls from viewers on Wednesday about their opinions on how much influence Congress should have in Iran negotiations, when a caller came on eager not to share his views, but to cannily quote the theme song of the former TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

"I just want to make it clear first of all I'm calling from Bel-Air, California," the prankster starts. "But I am originally from Philadelphia, specifically West Philadelphia."

The prank isn't exactly new, but it's funny every time. Every time someone else falls for it, at least.
