It’s time for a retro video. My choice for today is “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice. Yeah, he ripped off a lot of other musical artists. Yeah, he wasn’t as cool as he thought he was. And you’d probably be embarrassed if someone walked up behind you while you were watching it. But nonetheless, you know you want to click it to listen. Go ahead, it’s okay. You don’t have to admit it… 🙂
(FYI, it’s rated PG for a couple of questionable words and for scenes of lameness.)
Video of Ice Ice Baby.
Notice a couple of the things he said during the song : “Cookin’ MCs like a pound of bacon.” That’s really throwin’ the smack down, huh? I know he’s just rambling most of the time, but it is part of the lyrics to the song. At least he’s talking about bacon, which is cool.
And he also said, “My style’s like a chemical spill.” WHAT?!? What is that supposed to mean? Is he saying his style is a mess? And not only a mess, but something that cannot be cleaned up? Crazy…
While on this topic, there’s also a video on YouTube of Jim Carrey doing a parody of this song, from the show In Living Color. (This video is clean and funny.)
