Alfonso Ribeiro pulled out his famous ‘Carlton’ dance after skewing a putt on the golf course during a celebrity tournament, and Justin Timberlake joined him in recreating the signature move. Click to WATCH the epic video!
His golf skills may have been off, but he’s still got his famous dance down. Alfonso Ribeiro, 43, took part in the American Century Celebrity Golf tournament on July 16 and 17, and broke out his famous “Carlton” dance from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with Justin Timberlake, 34, after missing a golf shot on the green.
The Dancing with the Stars alum busted out the arm-swinging, side-stepping dance move in the tee box, and it’s just about the greatest thing we’ve ever seen. He showed off his moves with Mr. SexyBack himself after a terrible shot at the Lake Tahoe tournament.
Justin TOTALLY persuaded Alfonso into doing the dance, and the crowd went wild for the pair’s routine. It really was the perfect moment! Alfonso and Justin laughed over the funny moment and high-fived each other. Justin was clearly having fun on the course — he posted a photo on July 17 being lifted in the air by his teammates. He captioned the pic, “BEST. GOLF. HOLE. EVER.”
Alfonso also took to Instagram to share a moment from the tournament — a picture posing with Justin and some other golfers. “Great day in Tahoe Edgewood with @justintimberlake and Johnathan Thomas of American Century,” he captioned the picture. Looks like they both had fun!
Alfonso Ribeiro Performed ‘The Carlton’ Dance On ‘DWTS’
Alfonso is no stranger to the “Carlton” dance. After all, Alfonso played Carlton Banks! Since its appearance on the hit NBC comedy that launched the career of Will Smith, 46, he pulled it out the bag during a performance of season 19 of Dancing with the Stars in 2014. Alfonso later went on to win the coveted mirror ball trophy.
Meanwhile, Alfonso must have been pleased to have gotten on the golf course after months of daddy duty. On April 30, the actor and his wife, Angela Unkrich, welcomed their second child. In 2013, their first son, Alfonso Jr., was born! Alfonso also has daughter, Sienna, from his first marriage.
But what did you think of Justin’s version of the “Carlton” dance? Did he pull it off, HollywoodLifers? Let us know in the comments below!
