There was a time when Vanilla Ice was king amongst men.
Without Vanilla forging a path for white rappers, do we even get Eminem or Macklemore? Yes. Yes, we probably still do. But still. In the early 90s, this goofy-haired bastard couldn't be stopped. He was Kanye before Kanye, without the burden of all that bad attitude, controversy, and talent.
When most people think of Vanilla and the world of cinema, they probably go to his face-melting performance of "Go Ninja, Go Ninja Go!" during the conclusion of the epic sequel, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze." And rightly so. That was awesome.
But in that same charmed year of 1991, Vanilla also unleashed a god-awful movie as shameful as his highlighted, harshly angular coiffure: A little gem known as "Cool As Ice." Yikes, yikes, baby.
In this neon-filled flop, Vanilla plays Johnny Van Owen, a badass, motorcycle-riding rapper who arrives in a small town and falls for an honor student. Trouble is, her father, who is in witness protection, is found by the corrupt police officers he escaped from years ago, which just leads to bad stuff all around for everybody. This thing is actually an attempt at a remake of the Marlon Brando classic "The Wild One." Brando is spinning so hard in his grave you can hear him from above ground.
Come join us for this amazing screening, our first of 2014, and watch Vanilla Ice put the "break" in "break dance."
Here's how it works: you come out to Legend's bar to join us in their private event basement with 18 big screen TVs, order some drinks and/or food and enjoy an excellently awful b-movie.
