TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II: THE SECRET OF THE OOZE (1991)

Song: ‘Ninja Rap 2 (Go Ninja Go)’ by Vanilla Ice
Dancing: A mix of air-punching, microphone-thrusting and walking on the spot.

This is the music video for Vanilla Ice’s “other” hit, as inspired by the events of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze. In it, Mr. Ice helps out the heroes in a half-shell by improvising a rap to cover up their ongoing fight with a group of goons in a nightclub, with the McMuffin McGuffin they’re after a batch of anti-mutagen doughnuts (whatever they are). Redefining preposterosity - our term - the lyrics go a little something like this: “You know it's hittin’, like a ninja turtle / When the bass kicks in, you better check your level / The power of the ninja is strong / Fightin’ the crooks 'til they're all gone.” Take that, Bob Dylan.
