By now, you've probably seen the epic photo of acting legends Will Smith, Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence and Wesley Snipes circulating the internet. Turns out, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is responsible for the iconic photo.

Fans can watch the Philly-born actor and his team walk up on Eddie Murphy's trailer as he learned that Murphy and Snipes were filming Coming to America near Smith and Lawrence's Bad Boys 3 set at the new Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. "You can’t put @BadBoys 3 next to Coming to America 2 at @TylerPerryStudios and expect us to get ANY work done :-)," Smith wrote on Instagram.

"Eddie, come out here now!" Smith shouts outside of the trailer. "You can't hide!" Murphy pops out of his trailer to a crowd of people waiting to see him."We had to come see you," Will joked. "Gotta come and kiss the ring. Come pay homage." All four actors take photos.

"it's hard to beat this. This right there, that's iconicism," Smith said.

Murphy, who appeared to have not expected the legendary photo-op at all, joked that he's glad Smith's video "ain't scratch-n-sniff." Even Tracy Morgan popped by to show the actors some love.

2020 is going to be a good year. Coming to America 2 is set to hit theaters in December 2020 and Bad Boys 3 is scheduled for release in January of 2020. We might even see a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff.
