Ever since the bizarre dichotomy of Insane Clown Posse‘s horror-fetishism and family-friendly state-fair advertising that was the commercial for the 10th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos Festival went viral in 2009, the arrival of the festival’s ads have been greeted with glee by fans and haters alike, and this year is no exception. Vanilla Ice, who over the past ten years has been accepted as one of the Juggalo “family,” costars in this twenty-seven minute advertisement for the festival taking place August 11-14 in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. We don’t advise sitting through the entirety of this press conference-as-report to alien superiors, but we do recommend clicking through it for a taste.
Highlights include the authenticity ethos that characterizes the majority of pop music as “commercialized, mainstream, watered-down, safe-and-censored, unauthentic, pop p***y-fart bulls**t” and the misspellings of artist names onscreen (“DJ Quick,” “Juvinile,” and “Kitty“).
Beyond that, the main surprise of this clip is how good the rap bookings are for this show: aside from the requisite Psychopathic Records rap roster, the Gathering will feature Mystikal, E-40, Xzibit, Busta Rhymes, Ice Cube (in his second Gathering appearance), and Tech N9ne (in his fifth appearance, one shy of Vanilla Ice’s count!), plus DJ Quik and Juvenile, as mentioned above.
And of course, the biggest fan favorite will return to the Gathering: helicopter rides!
