Alright, STOP. The Cincinnati Reds are going to collaborate and hope that you'll listen.
Fans of a certain age (ahem, us) may be delighted to learn about one of the Reds' newest promotions — a free "I Love the '90s" concert featuring Vanilla Ice, Naughty by Nature, Tone Loc and Rob Base. The concert will be available to all ticketholders after the Reds. vs. Marlins game on Aug. 21.
The show with the '90s Hip Hop stalwarts and purveyors of some of the best karaoke songs ever will take place on the field at Great American Ball Park and will begin about 20 minutes after the game ends. VIP packages and Ohio Lottery field passes are available as upgrades, according to the Reds website.
The performers are some of the biggest names from the decade that brought us the original Beverly Hills, 90210, Hypercolor T-shirts and Pauly Shore's Son in Law. If you grew up in the slap bracelet era, then you surely have sung Vanilla Ice's "Ice, Ice, Baby" and Naughty by Nature's "Hip Hop Hooray" in the car, have worn a shirt referencing Tone Loc's "Wild Thing" or have gotten down with your honey to Rob Base's "It Takes Two."
And if you're younger, and have no idea what any of this means, well, you've got something special coming your way.
And why is this Reds-1990s crossover promotion happening? Yo, we don't know (unless it's a callback to their 1990 World Series win). But we'll happily accept anything that gives us a reason to remind you about Vanilla Ice's involvement with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.
