Vanilla Ice Hawks Beer In South Africa


I’m not exactly proud of it, but there was a time in my life when the mere mention of the name Vanilla Ice would make my pulse quicken. That time was 1990, when I wore out my cassette of To The Extreme. A few years later, Vanilla was a musical footnote who made the perfect subject for a tearjerker episode of “Behind The Music.” I respected him a few years back when he broke out with his hardcore band and gave us an angstier version of “Ice Ice Baby.” But now, Vanilla has cropped up in this beer commercial in South Africa. This makes me very sad—I mean, he’s even reverted back to his M.C. Hammer-wannabe style, complete with sequins. Well, at least he’s not doing vanilla ice cream ads? Breyers, you’ll have to pay me for that idea. [BuzzFeed]
