After watching Phelps retweet his third “Will Smith” quote this week, I had to tweet him and share that this in fact was not the Fresh Prince actor/rapper, but a “parody account.”
“Who ever it may be its still good stuff to think about IMO,” Phelps tweeted back at BSR.
Some of the motivational tweets from this fake Will Smith account that Phelps shared with his followers include:
- “Time goes by so fast, people go in and out of your life. Don’t miss the opportunity to tell these people how much they mean to you.”
- “People like to bring up ur past, when ur present and future look better than theirs.”
- “Good things come to those who wait… Better things come to those who don’t give up… and the best things come to those who believe.”
- “Go for someone who is not only proud to have you, but will also take every risk just to be with you.”
I caught crap from a Phelps Phan for telling him about the fake account. Whatever, I just wanted to make sure he knew that his motivation was probably coming from somebody living in their mom’s basement and not the guy that rapped Parents Just Don’t Understand.
Best of luck to Phelps this summer though. He’s a local legend and if a fake Will Smith is motivating him, so be it.
