Whoever is running the Carolina Panthers Twitter account is either a mad genius or flat-out crazy.

There is evidence to support this claim.

Unbeknownst to everyone, the Panthers on Friday revealed that they painstakingly wrote out the opening stanza of lyrics to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” using the first word of the team’s previous 40 tweets. Yep, it covered three days, and actually one of the words is an emoji, which is all the more impressive.

Here is how that theme song for the show from the 1990s, which starred Will Smith, begins:

“Now this is a story all about how

My life got flipped-turned upside down

And I’d like to take a minute

Just sit right there

I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air”

The Panthers tweeted the whole thing out and started it with this:
