The Utah House of Representatives made a rap video that explains how a bill becomes a law.
And it’s … something else.
The lyrics, which barely have any rhymes, are played over the tune of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song.
The song is called “Fresh Prints of Bills Here.”
Robert Maguire, who tracks political money for OpenSecrets.org, shared the video on Twitter.
The video, which has amassed more than 80,000 views, uses Comic Sans font. The word “it’s” is commonly misspelled throughout.

The video includes Reps. Mike Kennedy, Francis Gibson, Kim Coleman, Mike Winder, Christine Watkins, Norm Thurston, Travis Seegmiller, Mike Noel, Mike McKell (who wears a front-facing “Make America Great Again” hat), Jim Dunnigan, John Westwood, Tim Quinn, Jeff Moss, Marc Roberts, Brad Wilson (who wears a sideways flat-billed hat), Susan Duckworth, Val Peterson and John Knotwell, who sticks his tongue out at the end of the video.
House Speaker Greg Hughes and chief of staff Greg Hartley also appear in the video.
Gov. Gary Herbert gets a shoutout toward the end of the video when describing how the bill finally gets signed into law.
“If it’s good, Herbert might even be signing it later,” Hartley raps/says.
Peterson follows, “Look at that bill. It’s finally there.”
“‘Sittin’ as law ready to be declared,” Knotwell finishes, sticking his tongue out.
Twitter shared surprise over the video.
Just noting: This is a tweet that starts: "The Utah House of Representatives made a rap video...." Adding to the growing list of things I never thought I'd read but now have. https://t.co/hL8ROBw5eu— Gerald F Seib (@GeraldFSeib) March 1, 2018

If you’re not feeling the Utah House’s bars, you can listen to Sen. Orrin hatch’s “Eight Days of Hanukkah” rap song that went viral in 2013 below.
