After a cameo appearance in the 1991 classic film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II The Secret of the Ooze, Vanilla Ice released a video single to his song “Ninja Rap,” which he of course also performed in the film. Below is the video’s most epic moments:
1. Ice’s acapella intro of “Ninja Rap.”
2. This glorious crotch thrust.
3. When he took time to autograph a priceless vinyl copy of To the Extreme.
4. This early BRAND placement.
5. When Ice was really feeling the music.
6. The badass part when Leonardo, Raphael (in the back), Michelangelo, and Donatello showed everyone how to really get down.
7. When he busted out the sweet “Go Ninja, Go ninja Go!” dance moves.
8. Splinter’s mother effin’ cameo.
It was a historic day, “Ninja Rap” was born!
9. This great popular culture moment. *Tears in my eyes*
10. But the most epic part of the video: Ice’s impeccably coiffed racing stripes haircut.
