Colbert trashed a recent video in which a host of Utah lawmakers rapped about how to turn a bill into a law over the tune of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song.

Stephen Colbert didn’t have great things to say about a viral video of Utah lawmakers.

On “The Late Show” Thursday night, host Colbert trashed a recent video in which a host of Utah lawmakers rap about how to turn a bill into a law using the theme song from the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

The Utah House of Representatives dropped the video Thursday afternoon that shows members — some wearing baseball caps backward and others sticking their tongues out — rapping about how bills become laws, according to the Deseret News.

It has amassed more than 11,000 views, and has been featured on CNN, The Washington Post and The Huffington Post.

Colbert said the video “is way worse than I have the power to describe,” he said, “because I am not an epic poet.”

Colbert then played the video for his national audience.

“It’s all part of Utah’s new educational program ‘School House Sucks!’” Colbert said, a reference to the “School House Rocks!” video that also described how a bill becomes a law.

“It is a little rough,” Colbert added.

If that wasn't enough, Colbert's video description of the segment reads: “Utah's House of Representatives wanted to show how a bill becomes a law. Instead, they showed how an innocent attempt at musical humor becomes a catastrophe of historic proportions.”

The video features Reps. Mike Kennedy, Francis Gibson, Kim Coleman, Mike Winder, Christine Watkins, Norm Thurston, Travis Seegmiller, Mike Noel, Mike McKell (who wears a front-facing “Make America Great Again” hat), Jim Dunnigan, John Westwood, Tim Quinn, Jeff Moss, Marc Roberts, Brad Wilson (who wears a sideways flat-billed hat), Susan Duckworth, Val Peterson and John Knotwell.
