You probably haven't been following Dancing with the Stars (a commendable life choice), the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, but there's at least seven seconds worth dipping into in the current series in which, after teasing it for weeks, celebrity contestant Alfonso Ribeiro finally does the Carlton dance.

Teaming up with partner Witney for a jazz routine, Ribeiro sashayed spiritedly along a sofa dressed in a Carlton-esque costume of v-neck pink jumper and bow tie.

Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual served as the soundtrack so the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air dance seemed inevitable, and sure enough after earning a kiss on the cheek Alfonso busted it out like it's 1993.

Here's the video (dance at around 0:50):

And for your GIF pleasure, the moment followed by the original:

The last series of the reality show saw similarly unhinged, retro scenes, as Bill Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian from Star Wars) danced the cha-cha-cha with R2-D2.
