Fans of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will no doubt remember late actor James Avery, who passed away in 2013 and is perhaps best known as Will Smith鈥檚 lovable but stern Uncle Phil. Though he鈥檚 been gone for several years, his memory was recently resurrected thanks to a meme that surfaced in March after Smith went bungee jumping at the Zambezi river in Zambia and shared the GoPro聽footage on social media.

While the video looks super cool, with the Aladdin actor hanging upside down, fans couldn鈥檛 help but notice that he looked an聽awful lot like the man who聽once played his聽TV relative. Now, he鈥檚 taking the opportunity to address that resemblance thanks to one brave reporter at a Comic Con press conference to promote his new movie, Bright.

After a聽Huffington Post writer asked about the now-famous still, saying,鈥滻 don鈥檛 know if you saw, but a lot of fans isolated one moment where they said you reminded them of鈥︹ Smith jumped in right away, finishing his sentence with the words we all longed to hear: 鈥淯ncle Phil!鈥

He then commented on how internet fame has changed the relationship between celebs and fans, telling HuffPost, 鈥淚t is such a new world. I released my first record in 鈥86, so I鈥檓 over 30 years in the business. 鈥 In terms of movie stars, it鈥檚 a huge difference. It鈥檚 like you almost can鈥檛 make new movies stars anymore. 鈥 It鈥檚 like there鈥檚 a certain amount of privacy and there was a certain amount of distance that you had from the audience, and only on July 4th did you have access. So that amount of access created this bigger-than-life kind of thing. But in the shift into this new world, it鈥檚 almost like a friendship with the fans. 鈥 The shift is to 鈥榳e鈥檙e best friends,鈥 and that鈥檚 like with the comments and with those pictures and all that.鈥

He also addressed recent comparisons to that time he played Ashley鈥檚 dad, saying, 鈥淭hat mustache! I hated that mustache. That was so bad.鈥
