These Sorta-Relatable Will Smith 'Empty House' Memes That Will Make You Laugh Cry

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is set for a reboot series over on the streaming service, Peacock. While Will Smith, who starred in the beloved 90s series, has dropped new footage of the anticipated reboot, there are still things from the original Fresh Prince run that audiences will hold onto. For example, the famous meme is known as "Empty House", which shows Smith's fictional version of himself standing in an empty room screaming.

Due to the more dramatic nature of reboot series, audiences probably won't see anything quite as meme-worthy as "Empty House". Still, with many audiences remaining fond of the 90s version of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the meme promises to be around for quite a while yet.

9 Is That A Self-Burn?

One of the best things about memes, such as "Empty House", is that it's great for burns against all sorts of internet trolls or even to drop in the group chat. Just be careful about getting into a meme war, of course. The "Empty House" meme can easily turn into a self-burn or a good set-up if the topic of people's sex lives comes up in any way.

With truly great memes does come some veneer of responsibility, to paraphrase the iconic Spider-Man quote.

8 How Clean Do You Want The Room To Be, Mom?

To quote the Fresh Prince himself, "parents just don't understand". While keeping a bedroom clean is something all kids and teens should do, it definitely feels like parents have different expectations of what a clean room would look like as this meme so aptly points out.

Sometimes, one just wants the kid to be able to move easily through the room, and the other is clearly hoping a child will embrace minimalism.

7 The Area 51 Raid Feels So Long Ago

It's hard to believe that it was only two years ago that a group planned to Naruto run at Area 51 in order to free the aliens, right? Well, this "Empty House" meme accurately captures how everyone who actually made the trip felt when they got to the location and realized that there was no way that this event was going to happen.

At the very least, the people who went and even joined the Facebook group had a very weird moment of Internet culture to bond over in the future. As for the rest of the world? They enjoyed the show.

6 When The Landlord Has To Give Back The Safety Deposit

Another great example of the "Empty House" meme, this one shows the sweet vindication any renter will feel when they leave their home so pristine that the landlord is going to have to give them their safety deposit back. Something about the caption of the meme totally changes the context and the way Will Smith stands in the empty room, looking around at the bare walls.

It just makes it even funnier with that sort of context.

5 The Least Wonderful Time Of The Year

There's something so truly depressing about taking down Christmas decorations and putting them away. The living room suddenly feels so much emptier without that giant sparkly Christmas tree or the garland all around the fireplace. It seriously feels like the room has been totally emptied of everything, despite it looking the same way the other 11 months out of the year.

This meme definitely does invoke that strange sense of sudden space that anyone will feel after taking down their Christmas decorations.

4 No One's Favorite Watchmen Is Film Watchmen

HBO's Watchmen was truly a marvel of comic book storytelling at its finest. Audiences will probably never see another version of Watchmen like it. Just like how audiences will pretend that the 2006 Watchmen film adaptation directed by Zack Snyder no longer exists in the canon of the franchise.

No viewer will ever be brave enough to admit that the Watchmen film is their favorite entry, not when HBO's Watchmen so thoroughly dominates the conversation.

3 The ESPN Dry Spell

Despite what many people think about sports being a 365 and 24/7 medium, there are dry spells in sports programming. Nothing quite captures that ESPN dry spell that settles in as viewers have to go elsewhere to get the content that they so desperately crave.

It's all empty chairs at empty tables in all the sports bars across the land. When that dry spell hits, the "Empty House" meme from the Fresh Prince is looking a bit too accurate to the experience.

2 Remember The Tumblr Exodus Of 2018?

In 2018, Tumblr changed its terms and services that caused a lot of controversy with its users and a mass exodus from the social media platform. It's comparable to what happened with OnlyFans earlier in the year, except, unlike OnlyFans, Tumblr went through with their plans.

Naturally, jokes abound about how Tumblr was going to be a virtual ghost town when the new rules went into effect: December 17, 2018. This led to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air "Empty House" meme being brought out in an appropriate instance.

1 How Is This Messy?

Most people have that one friend who insists their house is a mess despite it looking like a photograph for minimalist living and clean lines. Nothing can make someone doubt their own cleanliness more than heading into a "messy" home to find it absolutely spotless with no discernable mess in their sight.

In the future, when visiting this hypothetical friend, maybe make sure to have a dictionary with the definition of messy highlighted. Or, at least, drop this meme into the group chat.
