Quiz: Blanket or Will Smith Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Outfit?

This weekend, Will Smith and his teen son Jaden star in the sci-fi actioneer After Earth. Twenty-three years ago, a young Will Smith first sat down on his throne as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Then and now, one of the show's best elements was the clothing. In every episode, Will would have a new fly, incredibly colorful, pattern-rich outfit. That aesthetic has worked its way into the culture's collective unconscious and now appears in the most unexpected places. Like on blankets! Blankets? Blankets! Blankets nowadays, especially "funky" ones, look like they were designed as togas for a giant Fresh Prince. They're so similar that we think you'll have a hard time telling the two apart. So chill out, max, relax all cool, and see if you can tell the difference between the pattern of a Fresh Prince outfit and that of a blanket.
