Utah’s House of Representatives made a rap video. It didn’t go well.

Take a minute, sit right there, watch Utah lawmakers rap to 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'

Utah House of Representatives rapped to 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' to explain how a bill becomes a law.

Utah House of Representatives rapped to 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' to explain how a bill becomes a law.

The reviews are in, and they are less than stellar.

In an apparent effort to educate its residents on the intricacies of policy making, members of the Utah House of Representatives filmed a rap video set to the tune of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

Speaker of the House Greg Hughes, House Majority Leader Brad Wilson and Reps. Norm Thurston, Christine Watkins and Kim Coleman were among those who participated in the rendition.

While the “rappers” were apparently proud enough of their work to pin it to their Twitter page, reception to the 1 minute, 16 second video was largely ... not good.

Even health officials were worried.

This is not the first time Utah politicians have tried their hand at singing. In 2012, Utah’s delegation at the Republican National Convention sang Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe.”
