Watch a Maid of Honor Rap Her Wedding Speech to the Tune of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby”
Delivering a speech at your best friend's wedding can come with a lot of pressure. There's the impulse to be funny but not too revealing, to be sincere but not too sappy. But a creative mind will find a workaround, like a recent maid of honor in the United Kingdom, who performed her speech as a rap to Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby."
While the early 90s tune may not seem like the most obvious choice for a rapped toast, maid of honor Rachel Winterbottom nails her rendition as she performs for her newly wed sister Hayley O'Brien. The rap has become a viral sensation, amassing over 700,000 views in the week it's been on YouTube. Winterbottom displays pretty good timing with her rap and a handle on the lyrics some of which go, "They're a perfect couple with the love they show/To the extreme, h is hot like a candle/Paul's laid back so its easy to handle/Dance, we're going to tear up the room/Drink and be merry for the bride & groom."
Judging by the crowd reaction, the rap was a huge surprise and hit, with cameras and cell phones set to record as mouths hung open in amazement.
Vanilla Ice has yet to comment on the video, his latest tweets a collection of Super Bowl thoughts and responses to the Netflix original movie The Ridiculous 6, which Ice stars in as Mark Twain. Before the movie was released, the rapper had defended Adam Sandler's use of racial humor, saying, "It’s a comedy. I don’t think anybody really had any ill feeling or any intent or anything."
