Alfonso Ribeiro Teaches Snoop Dogg The Carlton In Hilarious Video

By : Jennifer Browne |


Regardless of what else he does in his career, Alfonso Ribeiro will always be associated with Carlton Banks – and The Carlton dance.

Considering that’s what pretty much everyone remembers about him, what better way is there to spread your only legacy than to teach it to everyone?


Or more notably, teach it to Snoop Dogg.

Though he’s not the first celebrity to be taught the dance – with Justin Timberlake already having picked up the moves – Snoop’s got to be the best.

He’s never been known for his dance moves, but this is incredible:

Ribeiro previously revealed the inspiration for the Carlton was ‘ultimately Courteney Cox in the Bruce Springsteen video Dancing in the Dark.’

He said: “That’s the basis. Or in Eddie Murphy’s Delirious video, The White Man Dance as he called it. And I said, ‘That is the corniest dance on the planet that I know of, so why don’t I do that?'”

Well, Snoop Dogg slays it – even though he definitely can’t dance. And it makes it even better that he ended it with: “You can teach an old dog a new trick if he’s willing to listen.”
