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.

I liked it. I always thought Carlton was funny. It's a lot better than another story about the low life Kardashians.

Flash mobs have officially jumped the shark if TMZ is reporting on a networking marketing stunt.

how sad; routine looks forced and awkward, embarrassing; dance is old and stale. shame on WIll smith not helping his little brother carlton, who has to beg and dance on the street for money. Come on big bro will, find little bro a job or something

So many haters.....so quick to assume that just because an actor isnt in front of the camera they arent working. Alfonso has done quite well for himself behind the camera and other things.
