For Will Smith, fans referencing his opening line from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are probably a daily occurrence. But his character from the '90s sitcom isn't the only one who's "West Philadelphia, born and raised!" The real Smith also grew up in Philadelphia and, like any true Philly native, holds a deep love for the Eagles. On Super Bowl Sunday, "Mr. July" released a hype video spurring the birds to victory.
The video is pretty unforgettable:
Of course, Twitter couldn't help but make the obvious reference:
Do u think will smith wants the eagles to win because he was west Philadelphia born and raised— Anne-Marie (@annemariesugg) February 5, 2018
Some believe the Eagles' win may have been possible because of the "Smith Effect":
The eagles won bc Will Smith was rooting for them. That’s it. Point blank.— Mea (@MeaganLeahG) February 5, 2018
Fans celebrated alongside the star as Philly claimed victory:
I’m glad the Eagles won cuz that means Will Smith is happy— Jessie Jane (@jessiefinnesie) February 5, 2018
Other Twitter users were more focused on how good Smith's selfie-movie turned out:
I now need Will Smith to direct a movie 85% in selfie mode.— Erik Killmangú (@TwoThrice) February 5, 2018
In the Smith household, the celebration is still going. Congrats to Philly and its star citizen on a big win. BILLY'S IN THE BUILDING!
