In the Rocky series, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) is the The Master of Disaster, The King of Sting, The Prince of Punch, and the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World. He throws Rocky Balboa a bone by giving him a shot at the title. Little does he know that they’d become nemeses, and later best buds.
Try as he might to make a new name for himself, Robert Van Winkle, better known as Vanilla Ice, will always be remembered for such classics as “Ice Ice Baby” and “Ninja Rap.” While the rapper now dresses like a member of Limp Biscuit, it’s his hi-top haircut and harem pants of the ’80s that make his costume fun to imitate.
Billy Mitchell is a brash and colorful arcade player who stars in the documentary King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. He’s best known for playing the first perfect game of Pac-Man, holding the world record in Donkey Kong, and, naturally, selling a line of hot sauces.
In Napoleon Dynamite, Rex teaches rex kwon do, a self-defense training program that he developed over two seasons of fighting in the octagon. Bow to your sensei. BOW TO YOUR SENSEI!
