Hanksy Parodies Vanilla Ice on Division Street
Great news for the graffiti lovers out there – Hanksy’s hiatus on the Lower East Side is officially in the past. The street artist recently pasted his latest mashup – “Ice Ice Babies” – on the scaffolding at the corner of Ludlow and Division, just a stone’s throw from the now-decaying Bill Cosby piece on nearby Orchard.
In an email yesterday afternoon, Hanksy intimated that the comical work was inspired by seeing the Offspring’s “Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)” video posted to the Boogie Facebook page earlier this week. Pertinent lyrical couplet – “He needs some cool tunes, not just any will suffice/They didn’t have Ice Cube so he bought Vanilla Ice.”
Hanksy also hit Bushwick with Bruce Willis and “Pie Hard.” Yippie-ki-yay, Motherfucker.”
We can’t bring ourselves to publish a Vanilla Ice video, so here’s Beavis and Butthead making fun of him instead.
