A TikTok user has shared a mashup of the two iconic songs and it works surprisingly well.
A mashup of The Killers' Mr. Brightside and the theme tune from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has gone viral... and with good reason.
The Las Vegas rockers have no doubt seen their smash hit given the cover treatment a fair few times over the years, but this latest take on the indie classic has been delighting nostalgia fans everywhere.
Austin Archer took to TikTok to share his rendition, which sees him merge the 2004 hit with Will Smith's iconic rap form the popular 90s show.
The cover comes in the same week The Killers announced the release date for their Imploding The Mirage album.
Brandon Flowers and co have been teasing the follow-up to 2017's Wonderful Wonderful throughout this year, and have now confirmed it will be released on 21 August 2020.
Taking to Twitter, the Las Vegas rockers wrote: "COVID-19 monkey wrenched us. But we persevered. Folks, mark your calendars."
The Killers were also forced to postpone their UK and Irish tour dates for due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The band shared the updated tour poster back in April alongside the caption: "UK and Ireland friends...We must postpone our UK and Ireland dates due to COVID. The single most important thing is that you all take care of yourselves and be safe and healthy. These are going to be the same great shows, but we have to move them to next year. All tickets will be honored, so we really hope you will join us. If you can’t, please contact your ticket agent."
