The Carlton Dance is a fixture on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It happens when Carlton Banks (played by Alfonso Robeiro) starts wildly flailing to Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual.” His spastic motions ensure a laugh every time. The beauty of the Carlton Dance is that anybody can do it. It looks bad but it’s supposed to look bad so it’s ok to do it. And it’s contagious. Seriously. The next time you hear “It’s Not Unusual” (which happens fairly often if you pay attention), be sure to bust out in the Carlton Dance and start an impromptu dance party. You won’t be disappointed.
