Vanilla Ice Moves to Echo Park to Hang With the Hipsters and Get Some Indie Street Cred
Stop. Collaborate and listen. Vanilla Ice (Ice, Baby) is back and this time he's making himself over as an Echo Park hipster and working on his indie rock street cred.
Okay, so this is actually a spoof video from E!'s "The Soup" to promote Vanilla Ice's DIY Network show "The Vanilla Ice Project" in which the 90s rapper tackles home improvement challenges, and not, as this goofy video suggests, his burgeoning hipsterism.
So did the Echo Park residents (err, or shall we say EP to be en vogue?) dig Ice's digs at their cooler-than-thou 'tudes? As Echo Park Patch wonders: "Ice goes indie rock and it's a metaphor, possibly for the EP's hipster pretentions [sic]. Did E! get it right?"
