| Original YTMND:|
|January 23, 2007|
The Bel-Air'd fad started when ATape (a play on the user name BTape) created a YTMND with a misleading title. The premise was to entice users to click in hopes of seeing pictures of naked celebrities only do be immediately disappointed by a picture of Will Smith's face covering the private areas of the actress accompanied by the theme song from the television series "The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air". Text which states "You Just Got Bel-Air'd" usually accompanies these sites.
This fad originated on 4chan when someone apparently started telling a story in /b/ but then halfway through it become the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. It's already a popular meme there.
This fad is considered 'over' after Will Smith, showing disapproval,. However, occasional sites still use Bel-Air as an interruption to great effect.
