Vanilla Ice dusts off 'Go Ninja Go Ninja Go' for Kraft Mac and Cheese Commercial

by Jon Henseler

Well if you're a kid of the 90's like I am this will ABSOLUTELY make your day. Vanilla Ice dusting off Go Ninja Go Ninja Go and dropping panties in the aisles of grocery stores like you read about. Hell there's a strong chance that Kraft just filmed this happening in real life and decided to use it as a commercial later. Absolute fire flames jam off of the Ninja Turtles II Secret of the Ooze soundtrack that I used to rock on cassette tape with my Walkman back in 1991. And I wore this track out. Used to play it, take the tape out, flip is around, hit fast forward, then take the tape out again, turn it over, and put it back in and listen again*. And you better believe I'm picking these up at the grocery store today. The combination of nostalgia and the fact that I have the palette of a 10 year old make this the perfect product for me. 

*If you're in your late 20's or early 30's you remember that song and dance when you wanted to hear a song again immediately. Never understood why the 'rewind button' technology took an extra 3 years to hammer down. Like if you can make a fast forward button you can make a rewind one too right? #90sproblems

PS: How about Kraft hiring one vagrant at a time to work their commercials. First this guy:
