Alfonso Ribeiro’s still got it.

Sixteen years after the conclusion of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” and the 40-year-old actor can do the “Carlton Dance” — named after his Carlton Banks character on the show — like it’s still 1992.

In Los Angeles over the weekend, Ribeiro led what he called on Twitter “the world’s largest simultaneous flash mob” as a promotion for fitness company ViSalus’ Body by Vi program. He kicked off the dance routine with a little Carlton arm-swinging, to Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual,” of course.

This was followed by some choreography to Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache (Jump On It)” that fans would remember seeing Ribeiro perform with his co-star Will Smith on the ’90s sitcom.

Although Ribeiro was in L.A., he posted on his Twitter account that the same moves were being performed in over 300 cities on Saturday at the same time.
