Vanilla Ice Apologizes To World For His Career (VIDEO)

Yes, yes, it's a publicity stunt, but I've been waiting a long time for this so don't ruin it for me. Rob Van Winkle (aka Vanilla Ice) apologized for his career and especially for the song "Ice Ice Baby," as part of a marketing campaign for Virgin Mobile Australia's "Right Music Wrongs."

"I'm sorry for the hairdos, baggy pants, the scandals, the lies, the gangs. I was young, manipulated and I was a puppet."

As Gabe at Videogum points out, his life has been pretty crappy since 1991, so letting him have this moment of "fame" shouldn't make you feel dirty.
