Alfonso Ribeiro

LEADER of 'Carlton Dance'

Flash Mob! [VIDEO]

It started with one ... just a lonesome Alfonso Ribeiro doing the "Carlton Dance" in L.A. ... when suddenly, hundreds of people rushed in and joined in on the Tom Jonesness ... and it was AWESOME.

It all went down at the Universal Studios City Walk in Hollywood -- where the former "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" star was leading a group that tried to break the record for the most people in North America flash mobbing at the same time. Similar groups performed at the exact same time all over the country.

Besides "It's Not Unusual" ... the gang also busted out the famous "Apache" dance that Carlton and Will performed during the famous male strip club episode.

So far, it's unclear if the group managed to break the record.

It was nothing to do with him trying to get into the spot light again....he joined a company...and the company as a whole was trying to break a world record of the most flash mobs preforming the same dance at the same time all over the US and Canada....which WE did break the record.

Hahaha bust a move Carlton!
Gotta love the Unusual dance, it's the whitest black dance in TV history, and no matter how dorky, you kind of want to snap your fingers :D
And who can forget Alfonso back when he did the Jackson / Pepsi commercial moon walk? Or as Rick Schroeder's friend in Silver Spoons?
He's actually pretty talented, can sing, dance, act and...get a street full of people to shake it.

I participated in Minnesota with over 125+. This happened in over 300+ cities across the US and Canada. I am with the company that organized it and what a blast. We promote a 90 day health and fitness challenge, and trying to get the word out that your health should be a priority no matter how you do it.
