You Tube Alert: Breakin' & Poppin'

You remember Alfonso Ribeira looking like this, but there was a time before he hitched his wagon to Will Smith's star, a time when he hitched it to Michael Jackson's, & once it was hitched, history was made. I always wondered if he really loved Jacko or if it was just his agent's way of promoting his dancing ability to the masses. Either way, we were treated to his hi jinks on Silver Spoons & sweet sweet Pepsi commercials. He made a lot of other commercials too, but I know I never saw this ad because if I'd seen it, I'd own it.

I totally remember that and I'm sure I've quoted it in your presence several times.

If you have, I definitely didn't know what the hell you were talking about.

And Wendy... Will Smith is a hack. We're not here to champion Will Smith. We're here to champion Alfonso Ribeira!

And how about Alfonso RibeirO? He's much better then this bizzaro universe Alfonso RibeirA you keep talking about.
Speaking of hacks...Only a hack would post that spelling, not once, but twice, when the correct spelling is right there on the video you posted!

I agree, Will Smith is awesome!!

The real thing to talk about here, though, is how hot The Ricker was back then.

Why did I spell it like that? That's pretty bizarre.
