“Vanilla Ice Goes Indie Rock”
The man born Robert Van Winkle has already been through so many different career reinventions since his initial wave of pompadours-and-Hammerpants popularity faded. There was the gangsta weedhead phase, the nu-metal phase, the reality TV phase, and, most recently, the Juggalo phase. And now, thanks to a pretty-funny comedy skit on The Soup, he’s at least willing to entertainingly fake the indie rock phase. In the video below, Ice plays ukulele and leads an Echo Park crowd in a singalong of that acoustic version of “Ice Ice Baby” that you did when you were drunk in your dorm room that one time.
You have to admit: His rationale makes total sense, and nobody would complain if he was booked at Coachella.
