Vanilla Ice Performs "Ninja Rap" at TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2 Premiere
Go ninja, go ninja, go!
Vanilla Ice surprised attendees at the premiere of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows at Madison Square Garden when he performed his classic 1991 song "Ninja Rap." The song was made famous when he performed it in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Of course, he was joined on stage by four dancers dressed up in costumes that looked like cheap versions of the original Ninja Turtle movie costumes. It's a nice throwback to the Ninja Turtles films that many of us grew up with. For those of you not familiar with the original song, or you just want to relive its cheesy awesomeness, I included the original scene from The Secret of the Ooze below.
Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to theaters this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is directed by Dave Green and stars: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Brad Garrett, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Stephen Amell, Tyler Perry, Brian Tee, Laura Linney, Sheamus, and Gary Anthony Williams.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will land in theaters June 3rd, 2016.
