Vanilla Ice Ice Ice Baby Official Music Video _HOT_

"Ice Ice Baby" was initially released by Ichiban Records as the B-side to Van Winkle's cover of "Play That Funky Music".[13][20] The 12-inch single featured the radio, instrumental and a cappella versions of "Play That Funky Music" and the radio version and "Miami Drop" remix of "Ice Ice Baby".[21] When a disc jockey named David Morales[4] played "Ice Ice Baby" instead of the single's A-side, the song gained more success than "Play That Funky Music".[13] A music video for "Ice Ice Baby" was produced for $8000.[22][23] The video was financed by Van Winkle's manager, Tommy Quon, and shot on the roof of a warehouse in Dallas, Texas.[24] In the video, Van Winkle is shown rapping the lyrics while he and others dance to the song. Heavy airplay of the video by The Box while Van Winkle was still unknown increased public interest in the song.[25] "Ice Ice Baby" was given its own single, released in 1990 by SBK Records in the United States, and EMI Records in the United Kingdom. The SBK single contained the "Miami Drop", instrumental and radio mixes of "Ice Ice Baby" and the album version of "It's a Party".[26] The EMI single contained the club and radio mixes of the song, and the shortened radio edit.[27] The single was quickly pulled from the American market soon after the song reached number one, in a successful attempt to drive consumers to buy the album instead.[28]

A live version of the song appeared on the album Extremely Live.[41] "Ice Ice Baby" was rerecorded in a nu metal version titled "Too Cold".[42] Originally intended to be released as a hidden track or B-side, "Too Cold" was featured on Van Winkle's 1998 album Hard to Swallow, and received radio play in some markets. In 2000, a remix titled "Ice Ice Baby 2001" was released in Europe as a single, with a newly produced music video. The remix generated new international interest in Van Winkle's music.[43]

VH1 and Blender ranked "Ice Ice Baby" fifth on its list of the "50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever".[44] It was also given the distinction by the Houston Press as being the worst song ever to emanate from Texas.[45] In 1999, the song's music video was "retired" on the MTV special 25 Lame, in which Van Winkle himself appeared to destroy the video's master tape. Given a baseball bat, Van Winkle ended up destroying the show's set.[46][47] However, in December 2007, VH1 ranked the song in 29th place of their 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's.[48]

In 1991, Alvin and the Chipmunks released a cover version entitled "Ice Ice Alvin" for their album The Chipmunks Rock the House.[51] "Weird Al" Yankovic included the chorus as the final song in "Polka Your Eyes Out", the polka medley from his 1992 album Off the Deep End.[52] In 2004, the song was featured in the film 13 Going on 30. In 2010, the song was featured in the Glee episode "Bad Reputation" as performed by Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison).[53] In 2012, several references to the song were made in the film That's My Boy, where Van Winkle guest starred as himself - Donny Berger (Adam Sandler), an old friend of Van Winkle, asks him for money, claiming he should be "loaded" with the royalties he receives from the song; however, Van Winkle tells him that "Queen took 50 percent, Suge took the other 60 percent, I f***ing owe money when that sh*t gets played, man!" Later on, Berger and Van Winkle drive in Van Winkle's Ford Mustang 5.0, a reference to the car he drove in the music video (but not the same car), then listen to the song on Van Winkle's Walkman as they run.[54][55][56]

Vanilla Ice is "rollin' in my 5.0, with my ragtop down so my hair can blow" once again, and the world is a better place for it. That's right: the Fox-body Ford Mustang from his iconic "Ice Ice Baby" music video is back!

Licari: I met Rob about six years ago in Palm Beach County, Florida. For the past 13 years, I have been the producer, director and host of the Palm Beaches Student Showcase of Films, a statewide film festival in Florida honoring college and high school film students. Rob was gracious enough to present the music video award at the festival, and we subsequently named it the Vanilla Ice Music Video Award after him.

After that, Vanilla Ice became the unofficial National Butt of Jokes. He was mocked because he wasn't a particularly good rapper, because the ubiquitous "Ice Ice Baby" became so irritating, because of his ludicrous poufy hairstyle. He was ridiculed in the press and on talk shows; look-alikes were pummelled on film and video. When he fell off the pop culture radar a couple of years later, it wasn't soon enough.

The album's tracks include that ADD song, the druggy "Zig Zag Stories," and "Too Cold," which features "ice ice baby" lyrics that are torturously screamed. "Expletive Me," says Ice, is about his treatment by the music industry. "I jump out of my skin and look at myself and say, This sucks, expletive Vanilla Ice and that image.'
