The Most Ridiculous Moments From The "Gettin Jiggy With It" Video

If we’ve learned anything from Will Smith’s career, it’s that there’s nothing this Renaissance man can’t do. Including wearing a crushed velvet suit.

Some background:

“Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” might be one of Will Smith’s greatest accomplishments. It was a single released in 1998 off of his Big Willie Style album and it won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.

A grammy. It won a grammy. That is all.
