Nickelodeon's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Star In "Gangnam Style" Parody Video With Vanilla Ice

What do you get if you cross Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo, Nickelodeon Star Rachel Crow, Manhattan, New York, Perez Hilton, Viacom offices'/rooms full of Nickelodeon employees, a Lady Gaga impersonator, Toys"R"Us in New York City, and NYC's Time Square with the South Korean rapper PSY and the North American rapper Vanilla Ice? "Gangnam Style" Turtle Power style! From the entertainment news website Entertainment Weekly's 'PopWatch' Pop Culture news column:
Go ninja, go ninja, go! Turtles and Vanilla Ice team up for 'Gangnam Style' parody -- VIDEO

Have you ever seen a turtle get down? Of course you have; like any nostalgia hound, you’ve watched this clip of Vanilla Ice's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze rap so many times that you could do the turtle-ography in your sleep. But you’ve never seen a video of men in giant turtle suits, rooms full of Nickelodeon employees, a Lady Gaga impersonator, and, for some reason, Perez Hilton doing PSY’s “Gangnam Style” dance while frolicking around New York City. Such a video existed only in your deepest, gnarliest fever dreams.

Until this morning, that is. Proof:

This [streaming online] video is either the greatest thing ever created by man or beast, or decisive evidence of an imminent apocalypse. There is no middle ground. Also, how does Vanilla Ice’s massive TMNT tattoo make you feel — pleasantly nostalgic, or deeply, deeply sad?
