Vanilla Ice And The TMNT, Together AgainBy: Amanda Crum - February 19, 2014
Vanilla Ice is responsible for some of the most questionable fashions to come out of the late ’80s and early ’90s, but he’s also responsible for some pretty catchy tunes, and one of them just happens to be an anthem for the Ninja Turtles. Don’t act like you didn’t get pumped up when you heard it.
With the reboot of the TMNT movie comes the inevitable marketing blast, and one of the products to plaster the turtles all over itself is Kraft Mac & Cheese. The commercial doesn’t star the lovable green guys, however; it stars Ice himself, working as a stockboy while singing “Go Ninja, go Ninja, go!” under his breath. The dancing mom is cringe-worthy, but a little bit of nostalgia never killed anyone.
Ice has actually been quite successful over the years, and not just in the music biz; he began “The Vanilla Ice Project” in 2009 on the DIY Network that focused on renovating a Palm Beach home and still works in the real estate business. He also still performs, most recently on tour with New Kids On The Block and Boyz II Men during their 2013 sold-out tour.
