Vanilla Ice is no stranger to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as one of his biggest hits during the 90's was "Ninja Rap (Go Ninja Go)." In fact, it was such a big hit that all of the die-hard Ninja Turtles fans have been waiting for the Ice Man to perform his classic hit in tribute to the upcoming release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows. Unfortunately, Vanilla Ice still isn't performing the "Ninja Rap" in this new video, however he did premiere a new song for the new film, and you can hear it below.
With the bad news out of the way, there's some good news for you Vanilla Ice fans out there, as this impromptu performance shared on the official Facebook page for the new film gives us our first taste of a brand new track with the man himself. Apparently, someone heard Ice's complaints about how "Shell Shocked " lacked the "magic" that a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film required in its theme song, and brought him on for a new hit that recalls the days of franchise past. Because you know you can't include a Vanilla Ice song in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows without referencing his memorable chant.
This could serve as a good omen for the quality of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, as Megan Fox had stated earlier on in the project's lifespan that the sequel to the 2014 surprise hit would be even better than its predecessor, all thanks to the director being a huge Turtles fan himself. Perhaps it was this fandom that inspired director David Green to bring back Vanilla Ice, as well as giving him a new song to sing for the brand new sequel arriving in theaters in just a couple short weeks. Still, with all of this compromise between the new and the old, we still can't shake the memory of that first meeting of the heroes on the half shell, and the man who made them musically famous.
While this isn't a dead certain sign that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows is going to be an improvement over the original reboot, it's still pretty interesting to see such a tribute to both the past and future being paid. We'll see if the sequel manages to stick the landing, when it climbs out of the sewer on June 3rd.
