American actor Will Smith has given a group Kiwi dancers the ultimate shout-out on Instagram this morning.

The former Fresh Prince of Bel Air posted a video to the photo-sharing site of Manurewa High School's dance routine at the NZ Hip Hop Dance Championship Nationals.

The video has already rung up over 2 million views in three hours.

Smith captioned the post: "NEW ZEALAND Turnin' Up! Shout out to the Rewa All Stars...this piece is HOT!!"

The group of high schoolers featured the iconic Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song in their routine as well as Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual that was often featured on the 90s show.
