This is AH-Mazing!

Alfonso Ribeiro may not have found the same superstar fame that Will Smith did from their hit series, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but he's certainly had his own success!

Not only is he the host of Unwrapped 2.0 on the Cooking Channel, but he's about to take over as the host of America's Funniest Home Videos!

Oh, and last fall he won a little show called Dancing With the Stars! But those aren't the dance moves he's remembered for the most.

On the Fresh Prince, he probably had one of the most memorable moments EVER with his patented Carlton Dance, generally to the tune of Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual!

Alfonso opened up about what gave him the inspiration and it might surprise you a little bit in the most HIGHlarious way possible! He recalled:

"The Carlton Dance was created when it said in the script: 'Carlton dances.' It was never even intended to be funny; it was just that he was dancing."

He continued that:

"The dance is ultimately Courteney Cox in the Bruce Springsteen video Dancing in the Dark. That's the basis. Or in Eddie Murphy's Delirious video, The White Man Dance, as he called it."

LOLz!

That's so fantastic! We never would have known, but now that we do, we can DEFINITELY see it:
