In a somewhat bizarre Schoolhouse Rock/Fresh Prince of Bel Air crossover, the Utah House of Representatives made a rap video of themselves teaching residents how a bill becomes a law. Yes, you read that right.
Set to the tune of the Fresh Prince theme, the lyrics (in Comic Sans) guide the whole process from when a bill is drafted to when the governor finally approves it. They even talk about some minor disagreements throughout the process, changing “I got in one little fight/And my mom got scared/She said you’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air” to “They may get in one little fight/But it’s just ‘cause they care/They say we’re moving this bill back to the floor and we’ll argue it there.”
Some of the “rappers” are dressed in theme, with sideways hats and holding sports trinkets. Watch the appropriately titled “Fresh Prints of Bills Here” video below, and the original Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song as a comparison.
Our representatives have taken the time to explain how a law is made…with a surprise twist. Give it a listen and share so all your friends can know how laws are made! #utpol @GHughes51 @BradWilsonGOP @kimfcoleman @NormThurston @mikemckellutah @RepJimDunnigan @JohnKnotwellUT pic.twitter.com/KqaUSqOKtC
