Ever since the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge became a viral hit, I have wanted three people to do it. They are Vanilla Ice, Ice T and Ice Cube. Only one of them is cool as ice enough to do it (as of now) and it is Rob Van Winkle. Granted if your biggest hit and your stage name both have Ice in them, you better do a challenge with the word Ice in it. And he did! Just too bad he wasn’t singing Ice Ice Baby as he did it.
On that note, there is a fourth person I wish would do it. Why hasn’t anyone challenged Idina Menzel to do. She can sing that line from Let It Go when it is done, you know “The cold didn’t bother me anyway.” So to one of those few celebrities who actually hasn’t done it yet, can you challenge her for me?
Vanilla Ice has had successful music career and several shows on HGTV, but has Rob Van Winkle hit a rough patch in his life. So much so that he is now working as a stock boy at a supermarket? Nope, it is just the opposite because he was doing a commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese with his old buddies The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Just like when I heard his hit, Go Ninaj, Go Ninja Go, from the movie for the first time, I just can’t get the song out of my head.
Vanilla Ice was on Bethenny’s show today and they did something for charity that led to a lot of double entendres. The two of them had to screw a bunch of screws into a wooden board using a Bosch Drill, and the one who did it less time was the winner. That part is boring, but the jokes they made during the competition has me needing Ice Ice Baby.
That’s because when Bethenny opted to put on goggles, Rob Van Winkle told her she didn’t need them. She let him know, “I like a little protection when I screw.” Which is good advice. Then after he was done nailing her, she told him repeatedly “You can screw!” You know, he is very good at driving it in hard and fast, and then making sure to help the woman finish even after he is done.
I wonder if he learned that on his DIY show Vanilla Ice Goes Amish?
Yesterday Miley Cyrus Instagrammed a photo of the tattoo she got during the Rolling Stone magazine photoshoot on her feet and the ink reads “ROLLING $TONE”. Well as soon as Vanilla I¢e saw it, he had to get one himself. His reads “MILEY CYRU$” and he had a message for the singer that leaves all of our tongues wagging ” #👅 WORD TO YOUR MOTHER ! LMAO!” I think we can all agree that he has Rollin’ on the floor laughing at his newest tat.
BTW if you missed Miley’s photo, here it is:
Don Draper Says What spent the last 3 months combining lines from 280 movies to create a music video of those actors singing (speaking) Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby!
As someone who lived in Miami and this song was my anthem, I am so in awe with what he created. So much so I can’t stop listening to it because it is so f*cking cool. How cool? It’s Cool as Ice Ice Baby!
Seriously doesn’t this video just make your day? It’s almost as though your rollin’ in your 5.0 down A1A Beachfront Ave!
So remember in Ice Ice Baby when Vanilla Ice sang Rollin in my 5.0, well the two have been reunited after almost two decades. Sadly though there is no word if he went rollin’ in it on A1A Beachfront Ave checking out if girls were hot wearing less than bikinis.
Really there isn’t much more to the post than just seeing him in that picture with the Ford got me all nostalgic for my days in Miami singing Ice Ice Baby with my friends on the top our lungs. That’s just how we rolled in the 305 back then!
All right stop, collaborate and listen because for years people have contemplated the meaning behind songs like The Beatles’ Lucy in the Sky in Diamonds, The Vapors’ Turning Japanese and Phil Collins’ In the Air Tonight, but now thanks to Adam Scott there is one song we no longer have to wonder about.
Yesterday the Parks and Rec star basically told Conan O’Brien, “if there was a problem, yo, I’ll solve it” and he solved the meaning behind Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby. Hearing him taking the mic like a vandal was as if he was killin’ my brain like a poisonous mushroom.
So now that we know what Rob Van Winkle meant, let’s get the party jumping with the bass kicked in and sing the #1 song on the top of our lungs like its 1990 all over again!
Word to your mother…
Vanilla Ice just played at The HGTV Lodge at CMA Fest and he decided to give his biggest hit a country beat. The host of The Vanilla Ice Project sang Ice Ice Baby in a way that has never been done before and in a way he never thought he would do it. Even though he thought it was crazy do mix up his chart topper, I think it is crazy dope. Seriously he’s done rap, he done punk, now I think it is time for him to try country. Wouldn’t that be cool as ice?
Seriously am I the only who can’t stop singing this song at the top of my lungs? Granted this was my anthem when I went to the University of Miami because in a way for the longest time, it was the city’s song for people who were sick of Gloria Estefan. Actually to be honest I am still sick of her.
Now back to Rob Van Winkle, you can see him return to the big screen in Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy on Friday.
In the early ’90s Vanilla Ice was the first chart topping white rapper with Ice Ice Baby then he finished the century as a hard core rocker. Now in the year 2012 he is changing his tune once again to be an Indie Rocker. The Soup got an exclusive performance with the DIY host at a coffee shop and I can’t wait to go buy his album like all those other hipsters. Seriously don’t you like the way he changed up his biggest hit. Seriously doesn’t it grab hold of you tightly?
You can learn even more about his drastic musical change tomorrow when the full segment airs at 10p on E!’s The Soup.
Adam Richman travels down in The Keys tonight at 9p for Travel Channel’s Man v Food and Florida staple Vanilla Ice is there to help him learn a few things about the vacation spot. Not only did the host of DIY Network’s The Vanilla Ice Project teach the man who is not a afraid of any eating challenge how to dress for the weather, but he also taught him what is a true Key Lime Pie is. The one thing I learned about the yummy dessert when I lived in Miami, is that a true Key Lime Pie is yellow like the fruit itself. Did you know that?
I can’t wait to see what else the Ice Ice Baby teaches him and what food eating challenge Adam gobbles down on Man v Food. Team Man!!!
