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. Its already a popular meme there.
Another extension of the fad involves the "Fresh Prince" theme mixed in with other themes and music from all kinds of mediums, to further prove that the track can "fit in with anything"
