Vanilla Ice has a show this weekend, and he wants you to know the ’90s were better days. If, in fact, Beavis and Butthead, Mortal Kombat, Rush Hour, and house parties truly made it the last great decade. Jury’s out. I’m pretty sure he loved the ’90s because his relevance peaked back then, but something tells me he won’t stop, collaborate, and listen to my hot take there.

I can’t wait to get back to this. The 90s were the best. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers. we had 5.0‘s, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne’s world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. And Mortal Kombat is still better than fortnight but we got out of the house, We danced, we invented house parties in the 90s. The last of the great decades #IMissThenineties

Thousands reportedly have tickets for this event, in a state with surging cases of the virus since reopening too damn soon.
Booking Vanilla Ice is a weird flex, buying tickets to his show in a pandemic is even weirder. And dangerous. For one song and some cheap American beer on tap, probably.
I mean, really, you can get your fill of weird flexes from Vanilla Ice on YouTube, like the time he appeared on Dancing On Ice, a celeb reality show in the UK, and did this:
I get it. Work pays bills. What I don’t get is why anyone would spend their money on this.
Happy long weekend, America – please stay inside and/or socially distanced, like Canadians managed to do yesterday.
