Vanilla Ice at Toronto Raptors Half-time Show (Video)

Vanilla Ice (yes, THAT Vanilla Ice!) made a half-time appearance at the Toronto Raptors game last night at ACC.

After stumbling on an ad for the event the Metro newspaper (and doing a triple take), I tuned into TSN2 hoping to catch a glimpse of the performer that brought us the smash hit "Ice, Ice, Baby" way back in 1990 (woah... that's 20 years ago!). But they didn't air it on TV. Thankfully it's on YouTube in all its shaky-cam glory.

What's Robert "Vanilla Ice" Van Winkle been up to lately, one might ask?

He makes an appearance in the Insane Clown Posse film Big Money Rustlas, which just recently debuted in theatres.

He also makes a comeback of sorts in a recent remake of his hit track, by the oh so talented Jedward twins (see below).

I'm showing me age here, but I'm admittedly mildly amused by the nostalgia this evokes, as cheesy as it was then and even worse it is now! Will it ever stop, yo? I don't know!
