Will Smith has finally voiced his opinions on Jimmy Fallon's 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' parody, calling the shot-for-shot remake "fantastic". The Focus actor also revealed to The Tonight Show host how difficult it is to parent effectively with hiccups... And why his kids Jaden and Willow Smith don't think their dad is cool. The "Gettin' Jiggy With It" rapper took to the LA-visiting Tonight Show to lay down some beat-box beats before picking up the mic with Fallon and rapping Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock's "It Takes Two." Watch the video clips of Smith's appearance below.

Smith -- who has also recently been added to the Marvel universe as Suicide Squad's Deadshot -- chatted to Fallon about his kids, saying that being the parent of a 14 year old girl - Willow - "is tough."

"You lose your authority," laughed the Concussion star, and long-time friend of new Tonight Show host Fallon. "Two weeks ago i was very upset with her about something.

"And," he pointed out, "this is for other parents out there. This is really important. Listen carefully: There's no successful parenting you can do when you have the hiccups."

Apparently the confrontation didn't go down well. "I had the hiccups and tried to chastise her..." Smith laughed. Find out what happened below, and how Will's kids don't think he's cool anymore.

Smith also spoke about Fallon's excellent shot-for-shot Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song parody - which featured Smith's Fresh Prince castmates DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks) - with Smith calling it "Fantastic."

"I saw it," laughed the star. "It was fantastic. You did great!"

Check it out at the 23-minute mark below.

The two then laid down some beat box tracks using an iPad app called 'Looper', and proceeded to rap Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock's "It Takes Two." 

Unsurprisingly, it's kinda great, and brought the LA Tonight Show's audience to their feet.

Seriously. There's a singalong and everything.

Focus, also starring The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie, is in cinemas Feb. 27. Check out the trailer below.
