Vanilla Ice to Perform Live on Lopez Tonight Tonight

How much do you yearn for those sweet, innocent-ish years in the early '90s, when John Candy was in every comedy and a young Vanilla Ice was dancing and rapping across the set of Arsenio Hall's show? How about Super Mario Brothers 2? American Gladiators? New Coke? Crystal Pepsi? Sodas that sounded like drugs?

Well, get a taste of the past tonight for free. Wellington resident Rob Van Winkle -- Vanilla Ice -- is scheduled to perform live on Lopez Tonight, George Lopez's talk show on TBS.

Rob flew out to L.A. early this morning. It's part of a larger effort to promote his new reality show, The Vanilla Ice Project, scheduled to appear on the DIY Network next month. Last week, he intentionally drove a Cadillac through a fireball and into a lake.

Right now, you're asking yourself: Will he play "Ninja Rap," from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze? Will he play his version of "Play That Funky Music"? Will he play "Ice Ice Baby"? Perhaps he has a brand-new invention?

The real question is: Will he talk about that jump?
