Will Smith Updates “Summertime,” Embeds It In Our Brains Forever

Will Smith just wants you to have a good time, and his sage advice for doing so cannot be ignored: If you're looking to party all night on the beach till the break of dawn, you obviously go to Miami; but if you're looking to sip a hot cuppa while dodging tourists in Piccadilly, you obviously go to London. Yes, that's right. In a remarkably accurate remake of the Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff's "Summertime," Will Smith's "British Summertime" depicts the vain attempts of Londoners to partake in a season that simply doesn't exist.
What are the hallmarks of a British summertime, you ask? For one, riding around in your Jeep or your benzos has been replaced with the Shaken Not Stirred's maiden voyage up the Thames. Yes, it's as unsexy as it sounds.
Featuring Capital FM's Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon (who Smith made the remix for), this rendition is enough to make you feel strangely proud of your lack of tropical temps come July. (Metro)
